|Includes: DragonWave Inc. (DRWI)

DragonWave, well known for their high capacity carrier-grade point-to-point packet microwave radio systems which provide an affordable broadband solution for wireless network backhaul and related tasks, announced today that the company is growing by leaps and bounds in the Nigerian market, with five recent deployments of DragonWave's Horizon® Compact Plus and Quantum products via top Nigerian service providers.

Nigeria's demand for this kind of streamlined wireless backhauling of internet, voice, and data services has evolved considerably in recent years. Today, the growing ecosystem of broadband access solutions required by business and end-users cries out for precisely the sort of cutting-edge, 4G/LTE-Ready wireless backhaul solutions that DragonWave can deliver. MainOne, Mobitel, Monacom, Netcom, and Spectranet have all chosen DragonWave's Horizon line of packet microwave systems for their optimal spectral efficiency and reliability in providing carrier-grade (99.999% uptime) delivery that fully supports advanced applications and services.

President and CEO of Mobitel (the foremost Nigerian telecom firm delivering next-gen 4G and WiMAX broadband offerings via 2.3GHz spectrum license), Johnson Salako, spoke highly of DRWI, citing the critical nature of the technical partnership with DragonWave enjoyed by Mobitel since inception in 2009. Salako praised DragonWave's easy to install, configure, and manage line of radios, as well as the comprehensive service and support environment created by the company. The meticulous support platform offered by DRWI complements the robust designs handsomely, making the DragonWave solutions ideal for delivering optimum performance, even in the challenging climate conditions typical to this West African nation.

DragonWave is known for intuitive design that pumps pure packet microwave performance at up to 4 Gbps per link via ultra-low latency, all within a software-scalable environment that makes deploying the solution (and managing it) a breeze. We are talking interference-free throughput for next-gen IP networking architectures at the kind of carrier-grade quality that lets providers realize simplified, cost-effective broadband solutions with rich application and service capabilities.

President and CEO of DRWI, Peter Allen, spoke of the strategic importance of the rapidly developing broadband services space in Nigeria and doubled down on the company's commitment to providing carriers throughout Africa with the kind of support options they need to grow. Africa has been ear marked as a priority market by DRWI due to its strong baseline characteristics, as well as the company's technological/logistical advantage in high quality radio transmission, which will make broadband services affordable and accessible quickly, sweetening the dynamics.

Mr. Allen called the aforementioned Nigerian deployments a real "bellwether" for expanding DragonWave's already stable regional footprint and asserted that rock-solid reliability in mobile wireless backhaul solutions would go a long ways towards putting DRWI in the pole position on a continent-wide scale.

Head of Technical Operations at Spectranet Limited (which provides internet services in Nigeria's biggest city, Lagos), Mahesh Bhanarkar, emphasized the superiority of the DRWI product line over that of competing vendors and praised the ease of installation/configuration on DragonWave links. Bhanarkar said the streamlined setup process was so easy it allowed Spectranet to roll out upgrades in a flash, allowing Spectranet to use the new architecture as the cornerstone of their BTS and enterprise service offerings.
