TEL AVIV -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR - News), the world's leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced that Mexican long distance and internet operator, Avantel, has selected its WALKair solution for last mile access to offer broadband and other business services in the three largest cities in Mexico. Using 10.5 GHz, Avantel is deploying the WALKair 1000 multi-service system to target small office/home office (SOHO), small and medium-sized enterprise (SME), and corporate subscribers with broadband data, voice, and E1 services. The network is expected to be completed by the end of the year in the cities of Guadalajara, Monterrey, and Mexico City.

"After careful evaluation of the needs of the various businesses we are serving in the large Mexican cities where we operate, we knew that we needed a high performance system delivering fiber quality," said Miguel Calderon, Avantel's Chief Marketing Officer. "Alvarion's WALKair solution enables us to respond quickly to our customers' requirements by controlling our own access, while obtaining new sources of revenue. Now we are able to tailor services to specific segments of the Mexican market from individual consumers to large enterprises."

Alvarion's WALKair is a high-capacity, multi-service platform for point-to-multi-point applications. Combining advanced technology and an extensive feature set, WALKair allows carriers to use a single access link to satisfy each subscriber's complete service needs from leased lines to internet access, virtual private networks (VPNs), Ethernet, and frame relay. WALKair also supports both quality of service (QoS) and various classes of service (CoSs) to ensure service flexibility for the carrier and representing an optimal solution for next generation applications including broadband data, voice, leased line replacement, and cellular backhaul services.

"Avantel's deployment reflects the versatility of broadband wireless to enable competitive carriers to build their own networks to reduce costs and create new revenue streams," said Tzvika Friedman, president and CEO of Alvarion. "We are pleased to see the Mexican broadband business market continue to grow, particularly in the urban centers, and that the cost effectiveness of WALKair is a key element in enhancing carrier revenues there. Our breadth of products makes Alvarion the partner of choice for most carriers worldwide."
