TEL AVIV -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world's leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced the purchase of its premier platform, BreezeMAX(TM) 3500, by Americatel Peru for an initial deployment of a WiMAX-ready broadband network. When the wireless system is deployed, business and SOHO users in Lima will receive high capacity broadband data and voice services.

Americatel Peru, a successful long distance carrier, has been increasing its services to business providing voice, data and broadband services. The new wireless network deployment will operate in the 3.5 GHz frequency, thanks to a license conceded to Americatel Peru in the year 2001.

"We are excited about bringing WiMAX services to our subscribers in Lima, especially to business customers who will benefit directly from having broadband data access," said Carlos Lecca, Sales Manager of Americatel Peru. "Alvarion's BreezeMAX system complements our existing wireline infrastructure and will enable us to reach every potential subscriber. We are looking forward to working together with Alvarion, the WiMAX leader, as we grow our network."

Alvarion's WiMAX-ready, BreezeMAX is an OFDM platform with advanced non-line-of-sight (NLOS) functionality designed for operators to offer broadband IP-based data and voice services. Its carrier-class design supports broadband speeds and quality of service (QoS) to enable carriers to offer multi-services to thousands of subscribers in a single cell. BreezeMAX networks are already installed in more than 30 countries worldwide.

"Americatel has now joined the growing ranks of world class carriers introducing WiMAX services to their customers," said Zvi Slonimsky, CEO of Alvarion. "BreezeMAX has rapidly become the WiMAX-ready platform of choice, as evidenced by its installation in all parts of the world. We expect our WiMAX deployments to accelerate as more carriers and end users become aware of the potential benefits of this technology in terms of economics, capacity, and features, such as toll quality, voice services."
