Ingram Micro signs local deal with microwave vendor DragonWave

20 Mar 17

Ingram Micro Australia has inked a deal with Canada’s DragonWave which will see the distributor adding the vendor’s microwave solutions to its wireless portfolio.

The new deal will see Ingram Micro help launch DragonWave’s Harmony Enhanced MC product line, designed to provide cost effective high bandwidth rural connectivity, locally.

Felix Wong, Ingram Micro ANZ chief country executive, says the new master sales and services agreement enables Ingram Micro Australia to offer more turnkey network solutions with an unmatched, high-capacity microwave solution.

“We look forward to building our partnership together and offering new, innovative, high-capacity microwave solutions to the channel in Australia,” Wong says.

The Harmony Enchanced MC offering has dual channel capabilities and integrated compression enabling delivery of 4Gbps to 8Gbps in a single radio, in what the vendor says provides fibre-equivalent capacities for rural backhaul without the need to install fibre connections.

The companies say the high capacity Harmony Enhanced solutions are expected to appeal to telecommunications, municipalities and mining projects.​

Peter Allen, DragonWave president and chief executive, says: “Our partnership with Ingram Micro Australia further expands our sales and support capabilities across Australia.

“Ingram Micro will help launch our new Harmony Enhanced MC product line into very important channel markets where wireless networks are playing an ever-increasing role to augment ongoing National Broadband Network fibre builds,” Allen says.
