DragonWave Joins Cisco Technology Developer Program, Completes Interoperability Testing

OTTAWA, CANADA--(Marketwire - May 12, 2009) - DragonWave Inc. (TSX:DWI) announced that it has joined the Cisco Technology Developer Program as part of the program's Wireless Networking solution category. In addition, DragonWave's Horizon Compact, has successfully completed interoperability testing with Cisco BWX 8300 and Cisco Aironet.

The Cisco Technology Developer Program (http://www.cisco.com/go/ctdp) unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers. Members of the program share Cisco's strong commitment to customer service and satisfaction and are required to undergo interoperability testing based on criteria set forth by Cisco. With Cisco Technology Developer Program member offerings such as DragonWave's Horizon Compact, customers can more quickly deploy a broad range of Cisco Compatible business applications that can enhance the capabilities, performance, and management of their Cisco network.

The interoperability testing is designed to simulate typical customer configurations, and does not replace the need for on-site testing in conjunction with actual implementation.
