DragonWave is addressing a growing demand for streamlined wireless backhaul solutions in the Nigerian market. The company has recent deployments with five new customers in the West African nation. Mobitel, Netcom, MainOne, Spectranet and Monacom have selected DragonWave’s Horizon product family to deliver high-capacity, 4G/LTE-ready wireless backhaul networks. The Horizon Compact Plus and Quantum products were selected to backhaul Internet, voice and data services as part of Nigeria’s growing broadband access solutions for their business and end-user customers.
“Since its inception in 2009, Mobitel has relied on a technical partnership with DragonWave that has contributed directly to our ongoing success,” said Johnson Salako, Mobitel president and CEO, in a company release. “DragonWave provides unmatched service and support for a line of radios that are easily installed, configured and managed, as well as providing the durability and functionality that ensures optimum performance in Nigeria’s challenging climate conditions.”
“Installing and configuring DragonWave links is a streamlined process, which has allowed us to quickly upgrade our network and utilize them as the cornerstone for our BTS and enterprise service offerings,” said Mahesh Bhanarkar, head of technical operations for Spectranet, in a press release.
“We’ve prioritized Africa as a viable market given that our technological advantage and high-quality radio transmission makes wireless broadband applications more accessible and affordable,” said Peter Allen, president and CEO, DragonWave, in a company statement. “We view these new deployments in Nigeria as a bellwether for expanding DragonWave’s footprint regionally and bringing the best and most reliable mobile wireless backhaul solutions to the continent.”
