BreezeMAX™ 3300 Now Providing Broadband Services in 8 Indian Cities

New Delhi, -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions along with Siemens Communications, a global supplier of state-of-the art solutions in information and communications, today announced that Bharti Airtel, India’s leading private telecom carrier, is using their integrated WiMAX solution - the BreezeMAX 3300 system - to build WiMAX networks across India.

With deployments currently in 8 cities, Bharti Airtel is using WiMAX to augment its current broadband, fixed and cellular network infrastructure to quickly offer affordable broadband data services to SME (small and medium enterprises) customers in new markets and has plans to expand this network to more cities throughout India. Alvarion’s BreezeMAX 3300 is an extension of its market leading WiMAX platform operating in 3.3GHz, the frequency band specifically licensed for WIMAX services in India.

"Bharti is one of several WiMAX customers we have in APAC, a vast market we defined long ago as having great potential for WiMAX given the increasing need for broadband and the general lack of infrastructure there," said Tzvika Friedman, president and CEO of Alvarion. "Leveraging our widely deployed BreezeMAX system and our deep technical capabilities, we were able to quickly and cost-effectively offer a WiMAX product in the spectrum available to help Indian carriers close the digital divide. This ability along with our many local partnerships and global OEM partners, such as Siemens, enables us to address WiMAX demand anywhere and do it with a market leading product.”

BreezeMAX™ is Alvarion’s WiMAX platform designed from the ground up according to the IEEE 802.16 standards and uses OFDM technology for advanced non-line-of-sight (NLOS) functionality. 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. Since its launch in mid-2004, BreezeMAX has been successfully deployed in over 150 successful installations in more than 30 countries worldwide.
