DragonWave Supplies Microwave Backhaul for Gogo's Expansion

DragonWave has been selected as a microwave solutions provider for backhaul connectivity as part of Gogo‘s ongoing expansion efforts. Gogo will use the DragonWave Horizon Quantum and Horizon Compact+ radios for linking its remote tower locations back into a wired network.  DragonWave’s links are designed into the Gogo network by Future Technologies Venture.

Gogo's in-flight services are available on more than 2,000 commercial aircraft and more than 6,500 business jets.

“Our requirements are unique in that we needed to find a cost effective, reliable and quick solution to link our customers back into a wired network from our remotely positioned towers,” said Anand Chari, Gogo’s Chief Technology Officer. “We’ve selected DragonWave, as we’ve had a strong relationship with them over the past few years and have had reliable performance, service and support of the company’s products, which, in turn, has helped us provide a reliable quality of service to our inflight customers”

“We’ve enjoyed helping support the unique vision Gogo is pursuing to provide airline travelers around the world with dependable inflight entertainment services,” said Peter Allen, DragonWave President and CEO. “Probably the best compliment one gets from a customer is repeat business, and we’re committed to help Gogo succeed as they expand their business of connecting passengers to the Internet at 30,000 feet."
