Smallest Complete GSM Network - Alvarion

Alvarion Announces Availability of World's Smallest Complete GSM Network

February 14, 2006

UltraWAVE NIB Supports Full Functionality Including Value Added Services

3GSM Barcelona, Spain, -- Alvarion Ltd., (NASDAQ: ALVR), the world’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced the availability of the world’s smallest complete GSM network, the UltraWAVE network-in-a-box (NIB). Designed for rapid deployment and easy integration with existing wireless and wireline networks, the NIB is ideal for government and military installations; transportation applications such as ships, airplanes, subways, and tunnels; and private networks, including as a laboratory system for GSM developers’ solutions testing. The UltraWAVE NIB supports full GSM functionality, including value added services, and is perfectly suited for small to medium size networks and for deployment in remote areas. Commercially available by the end of the first quarter of this year, the UltraWAVE NIB will be first shown at Alvarion’s booth in Hall 2 (#F10a) at the 3GSM World Congress being held February 13-16, 2006, in Barcelona, Spain.

“As the smallest complete GSM network solution, the UltraWAVE NIB is a major breakthrough that results in cost effectiveness and faster time to market for operators as they can now quickly buy and deploy an entire network in one step,” said Amir Rosenzweig, President of Alvarion, Inc. “There are many cell-in-a-box solutions available today, but our NIB is the first to support complete GSM network functionality including value added services. This gives our customers, especially extremely small and other specialized operators such as governments, additional granularity in their network building for greater CAPEX and OPEX savings and shows our ongoing efforts to develop innovative products for the mobile market.”

The UltraWAVE Network-in-a-Box (NIB) is the smallest and least expensive entry point to offering GSM services, providing a complete network solution with flexible backhaul. Operating in the GSM frequencies of 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz, the UltraWAVE NIB is housed in a single 19 inch rack-mounted chassis and meets “two-man lift” requirements. With its compact dimensions (53 x 49 x 41cm) and weight of 57 kg, the NIB is about the size of a small television.
