OTTAWA -- DragonWave Inc. (TSX: DWI), a global supplier of high-capacity, wireless native Ethernet backhaul solutions for mobile and access networks, today announced that wi-tribe Pakistan Limited, a WiMAX service provider, is deploying its Internet Protocol (IP) backhaul network using DragonWave’s Horizon Compact radio system. Introduced in 2007, the Horizon Compact series has established a formidable track record for delivering carrier-class performance in mobile 4G networks.

“DragonWave’s microwave solution has enabled quick deployment of the backhaul network for wi-tribe Pakistan. DragonWave’s advantages include high speed data links, true IP architecture, minimum power consumption, and zero heat footprint,” said Mohammad Sadiq, CEO, wi-tribe Pakistan.

Formed in 2007 to provide broadband wireless access in emerging markets across the Middle East, Asia and Africa, wi-tribe intends to launch WiMAX services in Pakistan this year. The Horizon Compact is a small, 9-inch-square, all outdoor radio, integrating traditional indoor and outdoor backhaul functionality. It is used to deliver connectivity across mixed topology networks including ring or mesh architectures. wi-tribe can easily and remotely expand the capacity of individual links up to 400Mbps as traffic needs dictate.

“wi-tribe is rolling out world-class mobile broadband services, in its markets. The Horizon Compact will underpin their deployment in Pakistan, and we look forward to helping them grow their network quickly and efficiently,” said Peter Allen, President and Chief Executive Officer of DragonWave. “Horizon Compact continues to reinforce its credentials as the IP backhaul solution of choice for next-generation service providers throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa. Advanced Ethernet transport features and radio performance have been uniquely combined to help service providers optimize costs and substantially de-risk the business case for mobile and fixed-line IP networks.”
