DragonWave Launches 60 GHz Radio for Small Cell Backhaul

DragonWave launched 60 GHz capabilities for its Horizon Compact+ and Avenue Link product lines.

DragonWave said 60 GHz radios are well suited for metro deployment in small cell architectures due to their small form factor and high-capacity, low-delay transport capabilities. The 60 GHz spectrum is widely available and generally offered at a lower cost than other bands.

First deployments and small cell trials have verified the operational feasibility of 512 QAM at 60 GHz, with reaches over 1 Km. The integrated 5" antenna makes the 60 GHz Avenue Link product a logical choice for urban deployments on street furniture. The initial deployments of 60 GHz have also achieved 0.1 ms delay to support LTE backhaul. In addition, the trials characterized DragonWave's unique bandwidth accelerator technology, with some trials yielding capacity and spectral efficiency improvements greater than 50%.

"60 GHz is globally available and emerging as a viable, low-cost spectrum that will be a key building block for large scale small cell networks, said Greg Friesen, vice president of Product Management, DragonWave. "We're confident that the commercial release of this band adds a new, useful element to the operator's toolbox and it is an important addition to our expanding Small Cell portfolio."
