Rural operators play an essential role in the mobile industry as they provide connectivity services to communities and businesses while extending coverage for larger cellular providers. Unique requirements including long link distances, limited site deployment options, and reduced site accessibility make selecting the right transport solution more critical. 

DragonWave’s high-capacity wireless transport solutions provide the ideal combination of capacity and reach without the high initial cost of fiber or recurring cost and low performance of leased T1/E1 lines. Our flexible, all-outdoor deployment options and small antennas accommodate a wide range of deployment locations while minimizing operational costs.
