OTTAWA -- DragonWave Inc. (AIM/TSX: DWI), a leading global supplier of next-generation wireless networks, today announced that Business Only Broadband, a provider of fixed wireless broadband solutions in the Chicago area, has selected a DragonWave solution to roll out higher-bandwidth services to business customers.

Business Only Broadband is deploying DragonWave technology to increase the speeds of its primary, secondary and disaster-recovery connectivity services in Chicago to more than 300 Megabits per second (Mbps)-and to introduce those services in additional markets.

"We are near completion of our multi-million-dollar upgrade in Chicago, and we will be counting on DragonWave to help us expand into New York, as well,"said Richard S. Kingston, chief executive officer of Business Only Broadband. "Our corporate customers seek to protect network operations against failure and diversify networks that have been solely reliant on traditional, wire line local exchange carriers. Consequently, we conducted an extensive search for a quality wireless partner providing very high levels of scalability, reliability and security, and we found everything we were looking for in DragonWave alone."

Added Chris Craven, chief operating officer of Business Only Broadband: "As clients look to Metro Ethernet, MPLS (Multi Protocol LabelSwitching) and load-balancing solutions, Business Only Broadband and DragonWave will team to provide the best alternative to have secure, diverse data delivery."
