TEL AVIV -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced that it has completed initial interoperability tests between its 4Motion BreezeMAX base stations and various end user devices from third party manufacturers that are expected to be generally available in the near future. Focused around the IEEE 802.16e-2005 specification for mobile WiMAX, the tests were performed by Alvarion at multiple locations using its market leading BreezeMAX base stations and other vendors’ end user devices, many of which use the mobile WiMAX chipset from Beceem Communications, widely regarded as a leading WiMAX chip vendor.

Alvarion's extensive interoperability testing is part of the company’s efforts to promote open, standard, multivendor WiMAX networks, while offering service providers the ability to buy a complete end-to-end WiMAX 802.16e-2005 solution. Alvarion's mobile WiMAX solution, called 4Motion, includes mobile WiMAX radio base stations; end-user devices such as indoor desktop modems, PCMCIA cards and multimode devices; core network elements such as AAA servers and mobile IP home agents; and a comprehensive management platform. 4Motion mobile services are expected to be available in the first half of 2007.

"Our pioneering work around multivendor interoperability is accelerating mobile WiMAX and putting our 4Motion solution ahead of other products coming to market,” Rudy Leser, Alvarion's Corporate vice president strategy and marketing. "When combined with our current worldwide leadership position in WiMAX deployments, we are now closer to offering a high performance mobile WiMAX solution, while catalyzing the establishment of a vast mobile WiMAX ecosystem based on the 802.16e-2005 standard. The result will be to make broadband as ubiquitous and available as basic voice services are today.”

Already demonstrated at CTIA and CommunicAsia exhibitions, 4Motion enables service providers to begin deploying an 802.16e-based WiMAX network which is designed to support portable and mobile personal broadband services. Powered by Alvarion’s advanced radio technologies, 4Motion uses BreezeMAX, Alvarion’s WiMAX base station platform, as its primary building block. Designed from the ground up according to the IEEE 802.16 standards, BreezeMAX supports fixed, nomadic, portable and mobile WiMAX applications, and has been successfully deployed in over 150 installations in more than 30 countries around the world. Its carrier-class design supports broadband speeds and quality of service (QoS) to enable carriers to offer triple play broadband services to thousands of subscribers in a single base station.
