Alvarion And Aptilo Announce Collaboration To Market Mobile Data Offloading

TEL AVIV, Israel and STOCKHOLM, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Alvarion®Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks and Aptilo Networks, the leading provider of mobile data offloading solutions, today announced that the companies have successfully tested an end-to-end Wi-Fi mobile data offloading solution combining Alvarion's carrier-grade WBSn family of Wi-Fi base stations with the Aptilo Service Management Platform™ and the Aptilo Access Controller™. The companies intend to market the solution globally.

Alvarion's WBSn base stations feature leading radio technology including bi-directional Beamforming 802.11n, unique interference immunity suite, 3x3 MIMO and advanced antenna system, to provide high capacity and ubiquitous coverage in both 2.4 and 5 GHz with a low number of radio units. Supported by 802.1x security and EAP-SIM authentication, the WBSn base stations work seamlessly with Aptilo's platform, which provides carrier-class Wi-Fi service management, SIM-based authentication towards HLR/HSS and integration with the 3G/LTE mobile core for policy and charging.

With the growing use of hungry bandwidth applications on mobile devices, particularly the use of video, service providers are turning to Wi-Fi to satisfy their customers' needs. Alvarion and Aptilo Networks are providing a seamless, easy-to-implement solution addressing the scalability, reliability and security needs of operators deploying large scale Wi-Fi networks for hot spots, hot zones and mobile data offloading.  The solution allows operators to benefit from increased network capacity and coverage in high-traffic areas where data congestion is overloading existing cellular networks.

"The ability to implement Wi-Fi offloading quickly is critical for mobile operators to remain competitive," said Johan Terve, Vice President, Marketing, Aptilo Networks. "Alvarion and Aptilo are providing a secure, end-to-end solution to speed up Wi-Fi offloading deployments.  The solution also delivers extensive mobile core integration to ensure an uninterrupted, 'invisible' handoff from 3G/LTE to Wi-Fi for customers."

In addition to lab testing, the companies' joint solution is currently in trials in Central America, where a local service provider is using mobile data offloading to alleviate traffic from its cellular network in a major shopping mall in the capital city.

"Mobile data offloading represents a significant opportunity for Alvarion and we are excited to be working with a market leader such as Aptilo Networks in this area," said Ulik Broida, EVP Marketing & Customer Services at Alvarion. "Alvarion's offering is an open platform that is suitable for various typologies, including classic Access Control and APs architecture, as well as advanced Software Defined Networking architecture (SDN) which allows separation of the data and control layers. Our collaboration with Aptilo Networks is a proof point of our strategy to enhance our offering and integrate our solutions with partners in this growing Carrier Wi-Fi space."
