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.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
