Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, held a live demonstration of its innovative technology, the dual radio BreezeULTRA™, a point-to-point platform that provides 500 Mbps throughput.
The dual radio BreezeULTRA is based on 802.11n technology and takes advantage of 802.11ac channel combining techniques providing a high capacity 500 Mbps throughput per link and greater reliability. The channel combining technique (20+20 MHz and 40+40 MHz) allows the dual radio to be configured to use two frequency bands transmitting simultaneously, optimizing available bandwidth and achieving maximum throughput. A unique auto failover and recovery safeguard feature embedded within a single link ensures greater system availability as traffic is automatically switched over to the second frequency if experiencing interference.
During the live demonstration at the partner summit, the BreezeULTRA, while operating in dual radio mode, demonstrated link rates of up to 450 Mbps between two servers with an asymmetrical split between downlink and uplink.
"Our Annual Partner Event was an excellent opportunity to introduce our newest innovations and technologies," stated Ulik Broida, VP Products at Alvarion. “Our new dual radio BreezeULTRA has a unique value proposition for our customers who are dealing with overloaded networks and need high capacity point-to-point connectivity.”“Alvarion has always prided itself on its mutually beneficial relationships with our partners. We view our partners as our long arm into the market and a key to our success,” said Hezi Lapid , President and CEO of Alvarion. "Our partners saw first-hand how Alvarion is poised to continue to be the leader in the wireless broadband market while we continue to develop the services and tools our distributors and system integrators need in order to stay ahead of the competition." With exceptional reliability and carrier-grade Quality of Service (QoS), the new dual radio BreezeULTRA will offer a better customer experience and the lowest cost per Mbps on the market. The BreezeULTRA is a high capacity carrier-grade solution for high capacity IP backhauling and point-to-point connectivity. Available in unlicensed 5 GHz frequency band, it is well suited for a wide range of applications such as backhaul in the telecom market, smart city, oil and gas, education, video surveillance and public safety. The BreezeULTRA is software upgradable to the dual radio scheduled for release in the first quarter of 2013.
