Muscatine Power & Water Deploys Alvarion® Wireless Solution For Rural Connectivity

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 Muscatine Power & Water, a customer-driven, non-profit, municipal provider of electric, water, and communications utilities, selected Alvarion’s wireless broadband network equipment to connect communications customers across Muscatine, Iowa in the US.

“Many of our customers live in difficult-to-reach areas when it comes to delivering broadband data, voice, and, video access,” said Tom Lewis, Chief Technician, Muscatine Power & Water. “Families and businesses need these critical services and Alvarion is providing the solution to help us bridge the digital divide and keep our community online and connected.”

Working together with Wireless Connections, Muscatine Power & Water will leverage Alvarion’s carrier-class BreezeMAX® Extreme solution operating in the 3.65 GHz spectrum to deliver better communications services to local businesses and residents. The new deployment consists of six new base stations that will enable Muscatine Power & Water to more effectively serve its customers across the region.

“We enjoy a longstanding partnership with Alvarion that dates back to our first Muscatine Power & Water deployment in 2001,” said John Staley, Sales Manager, Wireless Connections. “When Muscatine evaluated options for upgrading its infrastructure, we again turned to Alvarion because of the equipment’s proven reliably and ability to affordably extend coverage and capacity.”

Muscatine Power & Water upgraded its broadband network infrastructure to grow its coverage footprint, increase service reliability, and offer bandwidth options in order to attract new customers. Later this year, Muscatine plans to increase marketing efforts and the new Alvarion deployment will help Muscatine maximize the opportunities associated with expanding its user base.

“Alvarion’s wireless solutions are ideal for providing high-speed connectivity in rural and underserved communities worldwide,” said Nir Golan, Executive Vice President, BWA Division, Alvarion. “We are pleased to work together with Wireless Connections to apply our expertise in Iowa with Muscatine Power & Water to deliver the broadband connectivity and speed this growing community needs to work and live.”
