DragonWave announced that Choice Communications, LLC, has selected DragonWave to provide high-capacity, cost effective, next generation wireless backhaul for its converged mobile services network in the U.S. Virgin Islands (USVI).

“Our selection of DragonWave backhaul services was a crucial decision in our launch of our best-of-breed converged CDMA and WiMAX mobile network. We are confident that, through our collaboration with DragonWave, we will be able to continue to maintain and expand our network roadmap in our ongoing efforts to provide quality, reliable service to our customers,” said Tony Shepherd, General Manager for Choice Communications.

Choice Communications selected the DragonWave Horizon products for both cell site backhaul and as an alternative to submarine fiber-optic cable interconnection between the three U.S. Virgin Islands. Future Technologies served as the turn-key integration partner for the project. As a result, Choice experienced significantly reduced overall capital costs and decreased time-to-launch.

“Our collaboration with Choice Communications signifies both our long-standing commitment to the Caribbean market and our products’ abilities to optimize backhaul performance in multi-technology networks,” said DragonWave President and CEO Peter Allen.

Future Technologies CEO Nino Canu added, “Future Technologies is pleased to bring these two great parties together; we are honored to be part of the first 4G mobile broadband network in the U.S. Virgin Islands.”

Choice Communications officially launched its commercial services this month, offering unlimited voice services and the USVI’s first 4G mobile broadband network, with speeds up to 5 Mbps, utilizing both EVDO and Mobile WiMAX technologies.
