LAS VEGAS -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), the world’s leading provider of WiMAX™ and wireless broadband solutions, today announced the signing of a master supply agreement with Digicel Group, the largest mobile operator in the Caribbean. Alvarion was selected by Digicel as its strategic partner to deploy a WiMAX network throughout the Caribbean region in a major initiative over the next few years.
