OTTAWA, CANADA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- As a further update to the press release issued May 28, 2014 at 7:48 ET, DragonWave Inc. (TSX: DWI)(NASDAQ: DRWI), we would like to provide additional details regarding the frame agreement to include customer name and number of links included in these purchase orders.

DragonWave Inc. (TSX: DWI)(NASDAQ: DRWI) a leading global supplier of packet microwave radio systems for mobile and access networks, announced the finalization of a frame agreement today with Reliance Jio Infocomm Limited ("Reliance Jio"), a subsidiary of Reliance Industries Limited (RIL). First purchase orders for 5,000 links have now been received to provide microwave products and related services to this Indian Telecom and Broadband Service Provider. DragonWave will provide 5,000 turnkey Horizon Compact+ links in support of the Indian operator's plan to roll out extensive, nationwide 4G/LTE networks. The deployment will also include services to be delivered by DragonWave's Indian joint venture, DragonWave HFCL.

DragonWave's Horizon Compact+ was extensively tested by Reliance Jio and found acceptable for use as transport system for high capacity backhaul to support their upcoming 4G network. Horizon Compact+ uniquely offers a combination of 2048 QAM modulation together with the industry's only bandwidth accelerator bulk compression capability, to deliver unsurpassed spectral efficiency.

"We are delighted that DragonWave products have been selected by Reliance Jio. This selection demonstrates DragonWave's product leadership. This is also DragonWave HFCL's first major services win in India, showing our deployment capabilities have matured," said Ram Raghavan, DragonWave HFCL CEO.

"We believe that the Horizon Compact+ radio brings considerable value in India where backhaul spectrum is both limited and expensive. We look forward to delivering un-paralleled spectral efficiency in our customer's network," said Peter Allen, DragonWave's President and CEO. "These orders underpin and reinforce the momentum we discussed on our recent earnings conference call."
