DragonWave Supplies WiMAX Backhaul for Greece's Cosmoline

Cosmoline has selected DragonWave as its exclusive backhaul provider for a national 4G mobile WiMAX network across Greece. DragonWave's Horizon Compact and Horizon Quantum will deliver native-Ethernet backhaul across approximately 1,000 wireless links.

Cosmoline, which holds a 3.5 GHz Band Fixed Wireless Access License covering all Greek territory, plans to migrate about 130,000 customers of traditional leased-line offerings to next-generation fixed wireless access for data, voice and video services. Deployment began in 2009 across Greece's two largest cities, Athens and Thessaloniki, and is continuing city by city to cover all major cities across the country. Cosmoline aims to convert its business, residential and government users to 4G mobile WiMAX services.
