Packet Microwave 6-38 GHz Radio

DragonWave® Harmony Enhanced is an advanced, long reach, and multi-service radio operating in the 6-38 gigahertz (GHz) spectrum bands. Harmony Enhanced is a merger of DragonWave’s Flagship Harmony Radio and Horizon Compact+ into a next-generation advanced capacity microwave system. With its integrated switch, Harmony Enhanced delivers a true all-outdoor Ethernet solution providing full Carrier Ethernet services directly from the radio.  


The Harmony Enhanced is a compact radio allowing operators to scale their networks at a low cost. Operating on next level spectral efficiency and increased capacity, the capabilities of Harmony Enhanced are unmatched. Harmony Enhanced is running on 2048 Quadrature Amplitude Modulation (QAM) capability, Bandwidth Accelerator+. These capabilities allow our technology to deliver 500 Megabits per second (Mbps) in a single radio with scalability in a single channel. Bandwidth Accelerator+ provides >2 times throughput improvements with the inclusion of header optimization and the industry’s only bulk compression working in tandem.


The Harmony Enhanced provides the highest output power in an all-outdoor microwave system leveraging Generative Adversarial Networks (GaN) technology to increase reach by >30 percent. Integrated Ethernet enables a true, all-outdoor installation without the need for an additional access switch in WRED queuing, E-LINE and E-LAN support, and MPLS-TP upgradability.


The combination of high spectral efficiency and high gain radio enables operators to grow their networks through cost efficiency and reduction of antenna footprint.
