DragonWave, a supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile networks, said Friday it has received follow on purchase orders for Horizon Compact+ links from a major Indian 4G provider.
Canada-based telecom gear maker didn’t mention the customer name for these follow on purchase orders. It also didn’t specify any financial details.
DragonWave had earlier partnered with Reliance Jio Infocomm for 5,000 turnkey Horizon Compact+ links in support of the Mukesh Ambani-headed telco’s plan to roll out extensive, nationwide 4G/LTE networks. The partnership was inked in May this year between both the companies.
Jio is in advanced stages of deploying a pan-India, 4G LTE and fiber-to-home network that will provide both broadband and voice communication services.
“India is a very important market and our solutions are ideally placed to deliver cost effective capacity for operators who are modernizing their networks to deliver 4G services. We are pleased to have received additional orders from this key Indian customer to further build out their 4G Network,” DragonWave president and chief executive Peter Allen said in a statement.
In India, the company has a presence in the form of DragonWave HFCL India, which represents a joint venture between DragonWave , and Himachal Futuristic Communications Ltd (HFCL).
