March 15, 2010

OTTAWA, ONTARIO, - DragonWave Inc. a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, today announced that Cosmoline has selected DragonWave as its exclusive backhaul provider for a national 4G mobile WiMAX network across Greece. DragonWave's Horizon Compact and Horizon Quantum will deliver native-Ethernet backhaul across approximately 1,000 wireless links.
"The combination of Horizon Compact's all-outdoor form factor and robustness plus Horizon Quantum's unequalled capacity and spectral efficiency made this an easy decision to standardize on DragonWave for all of our backhaul needs," said Dimitris Politopoulos, chief executive officer, Cosmoline. "DragonWave offers a family of best-in-class products that affords us the flexibility to strategically evolve our network, extend our customers new services and achieve sustainable operating efficiencies."

Cosmoline, a wholly owned subsidiary of DEMCO Group founded in 1995, plans to migrate about 130,000 customers of traditional leased-line offerings to next-generation fixed wireless access for data, voice and video services. Deployment began in 2009 across Greece's two largest cities, Athens and Thessaloniki, and is continuing city by city to cover all major cities across the country. Cosmoline aims to convert its business, residential and government users to 4G mobile WiMAX services.

"We have developed a suite of packet microwave backhaul solutions that have successfully enabled service providers around the globe to undertake rapid, cost-effective expansion of geographic market coverage," said Peter Allen, president and CEO, DragonWave. "The Horizon Compact and Horizon Quantum deliver the high capacity, ultra-low latency and carrier-class reliability that Cosmoline will require as it rolls out its 4G mobile WiMAX services across more and more markets in Greece."

"Future Technologies Venture, LLC is honored to be partnered with DragonWave and Cosmoline on this opportunity. Through this project, Future Technologies has been able to expand their sales and engineering support of the DragonWave products into the European market," said Nino Canu, CEO and President of Future Technologies Venture, LLC.

An uncompromised product design delivers pure "packet" microwave performance with software scalable, ultra-low latency transport of up to 2 Gbps per link. Extremely easy to deploy and manage, DragonWave products deliver carrier-grade (99.999%) interference-free performance in next-generation IP networks.
