Company Shows Power of New 4Motion™ Mobile WiMAX Solution at WiMAX Forum™ PlugFest

Frederick, MD, WiMAX Forum PlugFest -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced that its BreezeMAX system is streaming concurrent multimedia content to multiple third party, end-user devices showing robust quality-of-service, which ultimately enables broadband mobile voice, video, and data services over a single connection.
Employing IEEE 802.16e technology, the company is also demonstrating the power of its new 4Motion WiMAX solution, enabled by its BreezeMAX base stations, at the WiMAX Forum PlugFest. The WiMAX Forum PlugFest, being held at Bechtel laboratories in Frederick, Maryland this week, is an opportunity for vendors to prove 802.16e interoperability of chips, systems, and end user devices for mobile WiMAX services before entering the official certification labs.

“The WiMAX Forum PlugFest is helping to reduce customer confusion and what it means to be WiMAX Forum Certified,” said Adlane Fellah, CEO and founder of Maravedis, Inc. “It is an important next step in resolving 802.16e interoperability between vendor equipments. As the market leader in this space, in terms of market share and deployments, Alvarion is in a great position to deliver interoperable services with its 4Motion solution.”

Vendors are considered to be interoperable after demonstrating the ability to exchange data packets with two or more other vendors. Equipment interoperability is a precursor to a mass market for WiMAX devices and services providing compelling economics to service providers and end users.

“Interoperability is critical for vendors of WiMAX solutions,” said Rudy Leser, Alvarion's corporate vice president strategy and marketing. “Achieving this technology breakthrough, along with our ongoing partnerships and strategic trials surrounding 802.16e, shows our continuing market leadership in mobile WiMAX systems. And delivering multimedia content over WiMAX, while working towards WiMAX Forum certification, moves us ever closer to enabling the provision of Personal Broadband services worldwide.”

Alvarion now has more than 180 BreezeMAX deployments worldwide and has already performed successful interoperability tests with various mobile end user devices, including in an Alvarion-led private plugfest held this past June.

4Motion is a complete, end-to-end mobile WiMAX solution incorporating advanced radio technologies, QoS mechanisms, IP mobility core components, and multimedia subsystems along with subscriber terminals, an OMC and backend interfaces. Employing software defined radio (SDR), beam forming, multi-in multi-out (MIMO), dynamic bandwidth allocation, and scaleable OFDMA technologies, 4Motion and BreezeMAX offer service providers greater coverage, capacity, and flexibility in their mobile WiMAX deployments along with improved economics.
