Horizon Compact+ and Avenue Link 60 GHz frequency now commercially available

DragonWave Inc., a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the commercial availability of its 60 GHz technology in the Horizon® Compact+ and Avenue Link product lines. Currently in production, DragonWave’s 60 GHz products have already been deployed in successful small cell mobile operator trials. These products are well suited for metro deployment in small cell architectures due to their small form factor and high-capacity, low-delay transport capabilities. Because the 60 GHz spectrum is widely available and generally offered at a lower cost than other bands, the newly incorporated technology offers network operators more product options to cost effectively plan and deploy emerging small cell and LTE/LTE-A backhaul deployments around the world.
