OTTAWA -- DragonWave Inc. (TSX: DWI)(NASDAQ: DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, today introduced the Horizon Quantum in Europe, resetting the industry standard for spectral efficiency. Optimized for the rollout of "4G" Long Term Evolution (LTE) services, the DragonWave solution enables service providers to reap up to 2.5 times more capacity from their backhaul spectrum allocations.

DragonWave will display the Horizon Quantum in Stand 2A118 at Mobile World Congress, February 15-18, 2010, in Barcelona, Spain.

"Spectrum is being rapidly consumed-particularly in many European regions where microwave is widely deployed-and this is putting dramatic pressures on service providers," said Caroline Gabriel, research director and lead analyst, wireless technologies, with Rethink Research. "Their business opportunities are being reduced by decreased availability of spectrum, and the rising cost to add channels are threatening their profit margins. These forces cast spectrum-utilization planning as an increasingly crucial activity as service providers build out 4G networks."
