Company's high capacity, highly secure products are well suited for critical communication applications

OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwired - June 17, 2014) - DragonWave® Inc. (TSX:DWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, today announced its Horizon Quantum and Horizon Compact+ products have received Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 1 certification. These certified DragonWave products utilize 256AES encryption to enable a complete solution set for public safety and critical communication applications. Horizon Compact+ is a ruggedized all-outdoor microwave product delivering up to 1 Gbps capacity in the 6 to 60 GHz bands. Horizon Quantum is a split mount system delivering up to 2 Gbps throughput in the 6 to 38 GHz bands.

"These newly certified and environmentally hardened products, combined with end-to-end network management through NetViewer, provide an industry-leading solution for critical communications," said Greg Friesen, DragonWave vice president, product management. "This certification, our continuous product advancements, and expanding partnerships focused on critical communications are part of DragonWave's strategic growth plan to increase our presence in this important market."

The DragonWave products are the first FIPS certified systems to bring a series of new technologies to the secure communications sector. Both products feature DragonWave's Bandwidth Accelerator, the industry's only bulk compression engine that delivers 1.5-2X capacity improvement with minimal delay impact. Horizon Compact+ is the first FIPS certified microwave product to deliver 2048QAM modulations and Horizon Quantum is the first FIPS certified product with dual channel capability in a single radio unit. This combination of features drastically reduces the total cost of ownership through increased spectral efficiency and scalability for critical communications.
