DALLAS, Sept. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- COMSovereign Holding Corp. (OTCQB: COMS) ("COMSovereign" or the "Company"), a U.S.-based developer of 4G LTE Advanced and 5G connectivity and data transmission systems, announced today that it has expanded its engagement with Benchmark Electronics, Inc. ("Benchmark") (NYSE: BHE), a global provider of engineering, design, and manufacturing services, to provide additional manufacturing capacity to produce Dragonwave-X's ("DragonWave") flagship Harmony Enhanced and Multi-Channel (MC) model radios for mobile network backhaul infrastructure.
DragonWave Harmony Enhanced MC is one of the industry's highest capacity, longest reach, multi-service radios operating in the 6-42 GHz spectrum bands. As mobile network operators upgrade their networks to support increasing numbers of connections and capacity demand, they are beginning to make the necessary investment in infrastructure required to support next generation technology such as 5G, necessitating upgrades to existing backhaul systems. These investments are driving significant demand for the DragonWave Harmony radios creating an immediate need to scale production. After evaluating alternative production options, the Company has selected Benchmark to provide that additional capacity to ensure near-term delivery capability for customers beginning in September for its packet microwave products in support of next-generation IP networks.
"DragonWave built its reputation and leadership position in telcom backhaul because of its dedication and commitment to delivering the best technologies while meeting our customer's needs for reliability and responsiveness. Through Benchmark's leadership position in global radio manufacturing and its ability to quickly bring this additional capacity online, we look forward to further delivering on our commitments and to converting our rapidly growing backlog into sales," said Hans Amell, CEO of Dragonwave-X.
DragonWave-X is a leading provider of high-capacity packet microwave solutions that drive next-generation IP networks. DragonWave-X's carrier-grade point-to-point packet microwave systems transmit broadband voice, video and data, enabling service providers, government agencies, enterprises and other organizations to meet their increasing bandwidth requirements rapidly and affordably. The principal application of DragonWave-X's portfolio is wireless network backhaul, including a range of products ideally suited to support the emergence of underlying small cell networks. Additional solutions include leased line replacement, last mile fiber extension and enterprise networks. For more information, visit http://www.dragonwavex.com.
