Reliance Jio Infocomm selects DragonWave solution for LTE Network

Microwave radio provider DragonWave has signed an agreement with Indian operator Reliance Jio Infocomm to supply microwave products and related services.

DragonWave will provide 5,000 turnkey Horizon Compact+ links in support of the Indian operator’s plan to roll out extensive, nationwide 4G/LTE networks.  The deployment will also include services to be delivered by DragonWave’s Indian joint venture, DragonWave HFCL.

Following testing, Reliance Jio selected DragonWave’s Horizon Compact+ for use as transport system for high capacity backhaul to support their upcoming 4G network. The solution offers a combination of 2048 QAM modulation together with the industry’s only bandwidth accelerator bulk compression capability, to deliver unsurpassed spectral efficiency.

“We believe that the Horizon Compact+ radio brings considerable value in India where backhaul spectrum is both limited and expensive. We look forward to delivering un-paralleled spectral efficiency in our customer’s network,” said Peter Allen, DragonWave’s President and CEO.
