DragonWave's Harmony Enhanced Delivers Long Reach in 6-42 GHz Bands

DragonWave introduced its next generation, Harmony Enhanced, all-outdoor microwave system operating in the 6-42 GHz spectrum bands and capable of increased reach by >30% thanks to high output power.

Harmony Enhanced merges the company's flagship Harmony Radio and Horizon Compact+ into a next-generation, ultra high-capacity microwave system featuring an integrated switch.

The company said its Harmony Enhanced allows operators to cost effectively scale networks with the industry's leading system gain, highest spectral efficiency and increased capacity that is enabled through 112 MHz channel support, 4096QAM capability, Bandwidth Accelerator+ and MIMO. These capabilities allow Harmony Enhanced to deliver > 2 Gbps in a single radio, with scalability via MIMO to 4 Gbps in a single channel. Bandwidth Accelerator+ provides > 2 times throughput improvements with the inclusion of header optimization and the industry's only bulk compression working in tandem. It also features integrated Ethernet switching with WRED queuing, E-LINE and E-LAN support and upgradability to MPLS-TP, enables a true all-outdoor installation without the need for an additional access switch.

"The Harmony Enhanced represents an important consolidation and improvement to the DragonWave product portfolio by providing industry leading scale and reach in the microwave bands" said Greg Friesen, vice president, product management, DragonWave. "By providing a future-proof LTE backhaul solution, Harmony Enhanced will allow operators to meet the requirements for next generation architectures with scalability, integrated Ethernet switching, MPLS-TP upgradability, SynchE and 1588v2, so that their end-users can be assured the utmost in service delivery."

"Building end-to-end mobile broadband solutions requires a flexible backhaul component. With the help of Harmony Enhanced we can provide optimized backhaul with tested interoperability and integration into the network," said Gerhard Staudenherz, head of OEM product business line, Nokia Networks. "Our partnership with DragonWave supports our strategy for mobile broadband and our joint customers benefit from a single, integrated solution."
