Telus to ride DragonWave
DragonWave said it is providing Telus with packet microwave technology that will help the Canadian service provider add high-capacity connectivity.
Working with DragonWave's partner, Alliance Corp., Telus is using DragonWave's Horizon Compact, a product line designed to provide backhaul with low power consumption per bit and a minimal ecological footprint. The system provides what DragonWave described as ultra-low-latency transport of up to 4 Gbps per link.
"The DragonWave solution offers us a cost-effective, simple and fast way to provide capacity for special events," said Zouheir Mansourati, Telus' vice president of network technology and planning. "Our partnership with DragonWave to provide last-mile capacity for video and data connectivity allows us to continue providing reliable, high-performance Telus services wherever and whenever opportunities present themselves."
