Alvarion® Connects 300 Smart Cities In Brazil, Tripling Deployments In Two Years

Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced that the company has deployed its best-in-class carrier-grade wireless broadband solutions in approximately 300 municipalities across 24 different states in Brazil, creating ‘Smart Cities’ dedicated to delivering superior services to residents and improving quality of life.

These ‘Smart Cities’ were built using Alvarion’s BreezeNET® B, BreezeACCESS VL® and WBS Wi-Fi solutions in the 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz, 5.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies, enabling a single unified wireless broadband network that supports a wide range of applications. Such applications include indoor and outdoor Internet access, classroom connectivity and e-learning, intelligent traffic and transportation control, video surveillance for public safety, online services for citizens and voice, video and data connectivity for government offices, hospitals and other service providers.

A prime example of a ‘Smart City’ in Brazil is Feira De Santana City in Bahia State, a city of 600,000 residents. Feira De Santana is using Alvarion’s solutions to advance educational services by connecting over 240 schools to the Internet, linking over 32,000 computers daily, and allowing children and their parents to connect to classroom materials from home. The city also deployed a highly secured private network to connect its public healthcare clinics, enabling medical records and patient information exchange between clinics.

“Over the past three years, Alvarion’s network has made it possible for us to deliver a variety of services ranging from city-wide public Internet access, video surveillance for public safety, e-learning and connectivity for municipal buildings, schools and healthcare clinics,” commented Doctor and University professor Tarcízio Pimenta Júnior, mayor of Feira De Santana City in Bahia State, Brazil. “We use our wireless network in our work at City Hall as well as to provide valuable services to our residents. Deploying these services has allowed us to utilize our resources more efficiently, enhance our service level to our residents and greatly improve their quality of life.”

“Alvarion has extensive experience in ‘Smart City’ deployments, particularly in the Brazilian market where we’ve been active since 2006”, said Hezi Lapid , President and CEO of Alvarion. “Our best-in-class carrier-grade wireless broadband solutions are designed to deliver multiple applications, on the same network, with the highest standards of security and quality of service, allowing municipalities to build these wireless networks in an efficient and cost effective way.”

Alvarion’s solutions for ‘Smart Cities’ includes the BreezeNET® B solution, a comprehensive and highly-proficient portfolio of wireless point-to-point solutions for license-exempt frequency bands, the BreezeACESS® VL, a flexible and field-proven point-to-multipoint solution providing broadband wireless outdoor connectivity for a variety of voice, video and data applications in urban and rural deployments, and the carrier-grade Wi-Fi solutions, covering the legacy 802.11g ( WBS Family) and the new 802.11n ( WBSn Family) for outdoor and indoor environments.

“Our 300 deployments underscores the extent of our expertise and demonstrates our success in helping municipalities effectively use their resources to deliver more and better services to their citizens,” states Ricardo Pence, Director of Sales, Alvarion Latin America. “Our products are well positioned to help communities across Latin America bridge the digital divide and realize their full potential.”

Alvarion is participating in Brazil’s largest telecommunications show, Futurecom 2012, Rio de Janeiro, October 8-11, Pavilion 4, booth A8. To schedule a personal meeting please contact Latamd@alvarion.com.

Alvarion will host a presentation “Transform Your Great City into a Smart City” on Wednesday, October 10, 2012 at 6PM at the Sala Arpoador. At the presentation, Alvarion representatives will share their extensive experience in ‘Smart City’ deployments and feature existing and future ‘Smart City’ applications.
