Northeast Wireless Selects DragonWave High-Capacity Packet Microwave Backhaul Solution for New 3G, 4G Networks in Under-Served Markets
CTIA - Committed to connecting the unconnected, Northeast Wireless Networks has selected a high-capacity packet microwave backhaul solution from DragonWave Inc. (TSX: DWI)(NASDAQ: DRWI) to help it quickly and cost-effectively enable 3G and 4G services in under-served markets. Northeast Wireless's first deployments of DragonWave's Horizon Compact and Horizon Quantum will enable greenfield network rollouts in rural Maine and Oregon.
In many parts of the United States, mobile services remain poor-in part because the backhaul connections linking rural cell towers deployed legacy technologies that were not designed to support today's advanced, broadband applications, said Robert Parsloe, Chief Executive Officer of Northeast Wireless Networks. The DragonWave solution effectively creates 'fiber in the sky', enabling us to offer our customers the most innovative, cost-efficient and secure broadband wireless services without incurring prohibitive operational and capital expenditures.

Northeast Wireless Networks is a Maine-based, rural-focused, shared-network carrier, wholesaling cost-effective, wireless broadband services to major telecommunications carriers in markets throughout the United States that have been historically under-served. After an evaluation of multiple vendors' solutions, Northeast Wireless selected the DragonWave Horizon solution for its pure-packet performance, unsurpassed scalability, proven reliability in challenging deployment environments and long-term investment protection to deliver carrier-grade wireless links between cell towers and its fiber-based backbone network.

Our Horizon line of packet microwave solutions has been refined over the years to provide carriers a better backhaul network-one that is more reliable and scalable, that is IP-optimized and that results in minimal lifecycle costs, said DragonWave President and CEO Peter Allen. In networks throughout the world like those being deployed by Northeast Wireless, the Horizon Compact and Horizon Quantum are enabling a leap forward in the variety and quality of next-generation services that our carrier customers can bring to traditionally under-served markets.
