WIGO S.A. selects DragonWave for interconnect solutions in Peru

Lima-based wi-fi provider WIGO S.A. has deployed solutions from DragonWave to interconnect base stations and MPLS nodes at speeds up to 800Mbps in the 18GHz and 13GHz frequency bands.

Using DragonWave’s Horizon Quantum and Horizon Compact+ links, WIGO S.A can deliver up to 1Gbps capacity in the 6 to 60GHz bands.

Horizon Quantum is a split mount system that delivers up to 3Gbps throughput in the 6 to 38GHz bands. WIGO S.A. currently deploys point-to-multipoint base stations that are backhauled using the Horizon Compact+ and Horizon Quantum microwave radios, providing a comparable yet more economically viable solution to fibre in a dense metro environment where live streaming and social networking activity by end users is rapidly increasing.

“Finding a microwave solution that provides high capacity and low latency on par with fibre was a key consideration in expanding our network capabilities while keeping an eye on CAPEX over the long term,” said Mr. Gustavo Cubas Rojas, CTO at WIGO S.A.

“DragonWave has continually pushed microwave technology forward so that service providers have optimal choices when considering backhaul solutions to expand their network capabilities,” said Peter Allen, President and CEO, DragonWave. “WIGO is a great example of how to quickly deploy a microwave solution to meet burgeoning mobile capacity demand, and do so cost effectively and with the capability of leveraging the inherent interoperability of DragonWave solutions as networks grow.”
