TEL AVIV -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), the world’s leading provider of WiMAX and wireless broadband solutions, today unveiled its new end-to-end BreezeMAX Extreme branded solution for license-exempt and quasi-licensed frequency bands, incorporating the most advanced WiMAX technology available in the market. The BreezeMAX Extreme solution is designed to help speed up the deployment of broadband infrastructure into multiple market segments such as rural residential and business broadband, video surveillance, public safety, municipality operations and services, smart power grids, and government; and is commercially available today. This solution is another milestone in Alvarion’s licensed-exempt portfolio that builds upon the strength of company’s BreezeACCESS ® VL product family.

The BreezeMAX Extreme solution brings a standardized WiMAX solution with enhanced quality of service (QoS) and security to the industry with the intention to lower the cost of high-bandwidth, carrier-class broadband connectivity for a variety of applications resulting in an improved business case.

The new line of BreezeMAX Extreme family of products is based on an all-outdoor zero-footprint platform designed specifically for license-exempt frequency bands. Engineered for the global 5 GHz license-exempt frequency band and for U.S. 3.65 GHz quasi-licensed frequency band, BreezeMAX Extreme brings the benefits of a complete 802.16e WiMAX offering to the license-exempt segment. Advanced antenna techniques such as MIMO, STC and MMRC along with HARQ support increase data throughput and range. The utilization of 10 MHz and 20 MHz channels enhances capacity. This new solution integrates the radio base station, antenna, ASN gateway and GPS receiver in one compact all-outdoor unit to easily deploy on towers, rooftops and street poles in rural and urban areas.

In addition to being highly scalable and flexible, BreezeMAX Extreme employs complex interference mitigation techniques to allow for robust performance especially since it targets license-exempt frequency bands, and implements dynamic frequency selection (DFS) and automatic frequency selection (AFS).

“More and more markets are opening the doors to a wireless broadband infrastructure, which is requiring more innovative and responsive solutions such as Alvarion’s BreezeMAX Extreme,” said Monica Paolini, president of Senza Fili Consulting. “A standardized WiMAX solution with enhanced quality of service (QoS) and security has the potential to dramatically change the way data services are utilized. The introduction of 802.16e technology to these markets promises to lower the cost of high-bandwidth, carrier-class broadband connectivity for a variety of applications that fit each market’s specific needs.”
