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 through a 112-megahertz (MHz) channel support, 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 Gallium Nitride (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.
