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. Alvarion was selected following a successful commercial deployment of its 802.16e solution in Grand Cayman in 2007.

As part of the master supply agreement, Alvarion, along with its OPEN™ WiMAX partners, will provide an end-to-end WiMAX offering based on Alvarion’s Mobile WiMAX™ solution. The agreement also includes a comprehensive package of professional services.

“Mobile WiMAX represents a unique opportunity for Digicel to leapfrog current technology to offer a wireless full service portfolio as an attractive alternative to the existing operators’ offering,” said Mario Assaad, CTO of Digicel Group. “Businesses and consumers are looking for an alternative wireless solution. Based on our successful Grand Cayman deployment and our experience with the high throughput and quality of service of Alvarion's WiMAX solutions, we believe Alvarion is the best choice for enabling us to provide advanced services to our customers.”

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
