DragonWave has launched its next generation microwave system Harmony Enhanced, a high-capacity, long-reach, multi-service radio operating in the 6-42 GHz spectrum bands. Harmony Enhanced merges the DragonWave’s Flagship Harmony Radio and Horizon Compact+ into an ultra-high-capacity microwave system. With its integrated switch, Harmony Enhanced delivers a true all-outdoor, Ethernet solution.
Harmony Enhanced allows operators to cost-effectively scale networks with the system gain, spectral efficiency and increased capacity that is enabled through 112 megahertz channel support, 4096QAM capability, bandwidth Accelerator+ and MIMO. These capabilities allow Harmony Enhanced to deliver more than 2 Gbps in a single radio, with scalability via MIMO to 4 Gbps in a single channel. Bandwidth Accelerator+ provides more than two times throughput improvements with the inclusion of header optimization and the industry’s only bulk compression working in tandem. Delivering the highest output power for an all-outdoor microwave system, the Harmony Enhanced leverages GaN technology to increase reach by more than 30 percent. Additionally, integrated Ethernet switching with WRED queuing, E-LINE and E-LAN support and upgradability to MPLS-TP enables a true all-outdoor installation without the need for an additional access switch. www.dragonwaveinc.com
