The company’s TES networks also serves government, financial, oil and gas, utilities and other enterprise markets by transporting data real-time over a high-availability, high-bandwidth, secure backbone with performance guarantees.

Rob Barlow, president & CEO of WireIE, said: “Our positive experience with DragonWave microwave equipment has allowed us to establish service level agreement contracts that commit us to high performance standards with our customers. This was a key factor in our decision to continue to partner with DragonWave for high-capacity packet microwave radios as the foundation for delivering our services.”

DragonWave’s Horizon packet microwave solutions deliver new levels of capacity, spectral efficiency and reliability-all at the lowest total cost of ownership.

For all-outdoor requirements, the Horizon Compact+ delivers big performance in a small package by integrating the radio and modem into a single highly compact unit. The Horizon Quantum split-mount system delivers unparalleled capacity, while supporting multi-carrier operation, advanced synchronization and nodal intelligence, making it the most powerful packet microwave solution available today.
