OTTAWA, CANADA–(Marketwired – March 22, 2017) – DragonWave Inc. (TSX:DRWI)(NASDAQ:DRWI) a global supplier of packet microwave radio systems, today announced the selection of the Harmony Enhanced MC backhaul solution by Corridor Communication Inc. (CCI Wireless), a service provider in the province of Alberta, Canada, delivering broadband services to rural customers. This deployment will bring increased capacity and new capabilities to CCI Wireless’ existing rural microwave network.

DragonWave’s Harmony Enhanced MC will replace CCI Wireless’ existing DragonWave Horizon Compact radios, while reutilizing their installed base of antennas. Harmony Enhanced MC provides a more than three-fold capacity increase over CCI Wireless’ existing network, by leveraging the Harmony Enhanced MC’s dual channel capability, combined with 2048QAM modulation support. In addition, the industry leading system gain of the Harmony Enhanced MC allows CCI Wireless to achieve the highest possible capacity and availability for their most challenging long-range rural links.

„We selected DragonWave and its partner, Alliance Corporation after determining that the Harmony Enhanced solution best met our high capacity and long reach requirements,” said Amir Bigloo, CCI Wireless CEO. „Through our evaluation, which included field testing, we found the Harmony Enhanced MC to offer superior performance and greater operational simplicity.”

The DragonWave Harmony Enhanced MC is a high capacity microwave solution that enables operators to deliver 1 Gbps of uncompressed throughput in a single radio (using 50MHz channels) and up to 2 Gbps per radio with the industry leading Bandwidth Accelerator+ bulk compression feature. Harmony Enhanced MC also delivers the highest system gain in the industry, allowing customers to maximize capacity and minimize antenna sizes on longer links.

„Harmony Enhanced MC is uniquely suited to support CCI Wireless capacity requirements for its rural broadband network,” said Peter Allen, DragonWave President and CEO. „We are pleased to be able to continue to work with this customer to upgrade their existing DragonWave backhaul network.”

Local Forces Launch Daring Assault Behind Enemy Lines in Syria

WASHINGTON, March 22, 2017 — Local forces in Syria launched a multi-pronged offensive that included a daring air assault behind enemy lines to liberate Tabqa Dam, located 25 miles upstream from the city of Raqqa, the Combined Joint Task Force Operation Inherent Resolve public affairs officer said today.

Army Col. Joseph E. Scrocca conducted a teleconference live from Baghdad with the Pentagon press corps to detail the operation planned and carried out by the Syrian Defense Forces and their Syrian Arab Coalition partners with support from the international coalition to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria.

The SDF liberation of Tabqa is critical to isolating Raqqa and the next step toward annihilating ISIS in Syria, Scrocca said, adding that the dam, city and airfield are critical to ISIS for importing and harboring foreign fighters and exporting terror.

The Tabqa locations are ISIS’s last link to their territory west of the Euphrates River, he said.

Isolating Raqqa

Scrocca said Tabqa Dam has been used as an ISIS headquarters, a prison for high-profile hostages and a training site for ISIS leaders. Tabqa also has housed fighter-terrorist training camps and has served as a control center for terrorist attacks against the West since ISIS took control of the location in 2013.

“Seizing Tabqa dam will isolate Raqqa from three sides and give the SDF a strategic advantage and the launching point they need to liberate the city,” he said.

A key element of the coalition’s strategy against ISIS is to work by, with and through committed and capable local partner forces fighting to liberate their people and their land, Scrocca said.

“The SDF and the local Syrian Arab Coalition fighters have proven to be the most effective ground force against ISIS in Syria, he added, “and they have proved it once again with this daring operation.”

The international coalition supported the offensive with air movement and logistical support, precision airstrikes, close-air support by Apache helicopters, Marine Corps artillery and special operations advice and assistance to SDF leadership, Scrocca said.

Fighting ISIS in Syria, Iraq

Over the last four months the coalition has conducted more than 300 airstrikes around Tabqa and to the west of Raqqa, and has killed hundreds of enemy fighters and destroyed more than 200 fortifications and more than 50 ISIS vehicles, the OIR spokesman said.

“But make no mistake about it,” Scrocca said. “It is SDF on the ground putting their lives at risk and valiantly engaging the enemy. … It is the Syrian Democratic Forces, like the Iraqi security forces, who are making the sacrifices so that other coalition nations do not continue to suffer the threat of ISIS terrorism inside their own borders.”

Turning to Mosul in Iraq, Scrocca said that while Iraqi Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi was meeting yesterday at the White House with President Donald J. Trump, Iraqi forces continued to pressure ISIS on multiple axes of advance in or around the western part of the city.

“It is grueling, bloody, tough fighting against a brutal and entrenched enemy who cares nothing about the local citizens and deliberately targets them as the [Iraqis] try to evacuate them from the front lines,” the OIR spokesman said, “… but the [Iraqis] are not backing down.”

Scrocca added, “This is what building partner capacity looks like on the ground. This is what the coalition has strived to instill in these soldiers and police through our training. The ‘by, with and through’ strategy is working, and we know that because we’ve seen what these forces are doing every day against a truly evil enemy.”

Longtime Medical Association Executive to Retire as CEO of International Medical Specialty Association

JACKSONVILLE, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jacksonville native and longtime health executive Donald “Don” C. Jones, is retiring on May 7, as CEO of the Jacksonville-based American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE), after leading the organization since 1997.

“I have known Don Jones since I was a fellow, and he has been a constant presence in my endocrine career,” said Pauline M. Camacho, MD, FACE, current President of AACE, and Professor of Medicine and Director of Loyola University Osteoporosis and Metabolic Bone Disease Center. “He was there when I first joined the Board of Directors, when I was appointed Secretary, and finally, now as the President of AACE. Many years ago, I jokingly asked him to wait until I became president before retiring, and I’m glad he did. Don has done a remarkable job at AACE, and all of us on the AACE Board of Directors will miss his leadership as well as his friendship.”

Jones has dedicated his more than 47-year career to medical association management, serving as the CEO of AACE for the past 20 years, and as the former Executive Director and CEO of the Florida Medical Association (FMA), where he spent the first 29 years of his career (1967-1996).

“The opportunity to work with AACE since its inception has been the highlight of my entire career in organized medicine,” said Jones. “To me, endocrinologists and AACE are unique in its mission and role in organized medicine. Endocrinologists are among the brightest of the brightest of physicians, totally dedicated to meeting the everyday needs and challenges in providing the best possible care to their patients with endocrine disorders.”

“It’s been an honor to be part of such a phenomenal organization from the very beginning,” Jones continued. “The tremendous growth and influence of AACE – both domestically and internationally – has earned AACE’s growing recognition as truly the ‘Voice of Clinical Endocrinology.’ It has been a special honor to work with the leadership, Board of Directors, the Executive Committee and the many dedicated members who have and continue to serve on AACE committees and task forces. Their combined contributions are immeasurable. Suffice to say, I approach the end of my time with AACE with mixed emotions. I will truly miss working with this great organization and the most talented and dedicated staff anyone could ever hope for. They have played a huge role in AACE’s achievements and have my deepest admiration and appreciation for the full support they have provided to me personally for the past 20 years.”

“I leave behind my best wishes and confidence that AACE will continue to grow and achieve new milestones of success in the future. My thanks to everyone for allowing me to be part of the AACE family.”

During his tenure at AACE, Jones was responsible for the overall daily management of personnel at the AACE headquarters in Jacksonville and supervision of its policies; oversaw important health care legislation; helped to initiate and expand AACE scientific programs and activities of AACE and its affiliated educational organization – the American College of Endocrinology (ACE), as well as AACE’s for-profit subsidiary, AACECORP.

He guided the Association through exponential growth, from approximately 2,600 members in 1997 to more than 7,500 members today from 22 domestic chapters and 16 international chapters.

„My opportunities in organized medicine were made possible through Don’s willingness to take a chance on me in 1997 as his Deputy,” said Jay Millson, Executive Vice President of the Florida Academy of Family Physicians (FAFP). “He will always be my mentor and an individual who I hold in the highest regard. The “Counting Crows” version of Mr. Jones may have had a different meaning, but it always reminds me of the days I spent just ‘Mr. Jones and me.’ Here’s to a great man who will be remembered for an outstanding career.”

A strong leader and a consummate professional, Jones championed the rights of patients with diabetes and other metabolic conditions, and the physicians who care for them.

Many AACE “firsts” were established under his leadership including AACE’s 2011 landmark lead in recognizing obesity as a disease, and the American Medical Association’s (AMA) affirmation two years later. Other firsts include AACE’s Clinical Practice Guidelines being featured in the National Guidelines Clearinghouse; the start of the annual Capitol Hill Congressional Visits with lawmakers in 1999; the formation of AACEPAC, an independent organization dedicated to promoting congressional candidates who share the mission of AACE; the creation of a Socioeconomics Conference to assist members with the business and regulatory side of their endocrinology practice; the establishment of a physician placement service now known as AACE Endocrine Careers, and the debut of AACE Online News, an e-newsletter to keep members better informed of policy and other important news, and many others.

In addition, Jones served on the Advisory Committee to the Executive Vice President of the AMA from 1983 to 1990; and on the Board of Directors of the American Association of Medical Society Executives (AAMSE), serving as its president in 1989. In 2001, he was awarded the AMA Executive Achievement Award for his service.

On January 15, 2009, Jones was one of the 155 aboard the U.S. Airways flight 1549 that landed safely in the Hudson River in New York, known as the “Miracle on the Hudson.”

Jones and his wife of 52 years, Sharon, have two children; Amy Jones Bruns and Donald Jones II, and five grandsons.
