Alvarion® And G-NET To Provide Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Connectivity To Urban And Rural Areas In Georgia, Caucus

Stocks in this article: ALVR

Alvarion ® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced that their collaboration with G-Net, a WISP Operator in Republic of Georgia, has enabled Wi-Fi connectivity in both urban and rural Georgia. Over 600 Wi-Fi base stations enabling carrier-grade Wi-Fi access are being deployed in heavily congested areas in Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi and rural villages situated nationwide. The network provides access in the 2.4 GHz band.

According to a recent research report, in 2011 mobile penetration in Georgia had reached 100% having increased sevenfold since 2003. G-Net required a network that could be quickly installed and instantly supply connectivity to all their users. Focusing on Georgia’s capital city, Tbilisi, the base stations will be deployed in hot zones to cover highly congested areas such as public places, stadiums and malls. Additionally, base stations deployed in rural villages will provide high speed internet connection and services.

Alvarion partnered with BPK in order to provide carrier-grade Wi-Fi access for both a busy metropolitan area and to residents in rural Georgia. The first phase of the project is currently underway and has already enabled more than 5000 customers to be connected and have access to services that were previously unavailable. The second phase is being planned towards the end of the year.

“Alvarion is pleased to provide a new territory with the technology they need to connect both rural and urban areas,” stated Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “Our partnership with BPK has allowed us to seamlessly implement this solution for G-Net and their customers.”

“With the exponential growth of customers and data requirements, we needed a solution that could cost-effectively provide services for all connectivity needs for crowded and sparsely populated areas,” stated Paata Kikodze, General Manager, G-Net. “Alvarion’s Wi-Fi solution allowed us to give hotspot connectivity in many villages in Rural area while providing customers in outlying areas with high quality service internet and surfing capabilities.”
