OTTAWA -- DragonWave Inc. (TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, today announced a partnership with Execulink Telecom to provide affordable broadband Internet access to residential and small-business customers in southern Ontario. Execulink Telecom is expanding high-speed services throughout its service area and—working with DragonWave's partner, Alliance Corporation—selected the Horizon Compact to deliver low-latency microwave backhaul.

The Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) is partially funding the service deployment as part of Ontario's Rural Connections Broadband Program, which is designed to bring broadband access to the province's underserved areas.

"Execulink is pleased to extend access to high-speed Internet to the residents and businesses in Oxford County. With the help of DragonWave, we are able to provide a high-quality and affordable product to our consumers," said Jonathan E. Scott, Chief Financial Officer and Vice President of Operations with Execulink Telecom. "After extensive evaluation and a public bid in which many solutions were considered, we chose the Horizon Compact because it allows us to offer the best Quality of Service (QoS) to our customers. Plus, its superior technical design translates into significant ongoing savings in operational expenditures (OPEX), and implementation is essentially seamless."
