TEL AVIV, Israel, June 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 Experiencias Xcaret, the management company of three Cancún-based theme parks – Xcaret Park, Xel-Há Park, and Park Xplor – deployed its carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution to support various wireless services at the parks.

"The Wi-Fi network we required posed many challenges to the solution provider – the need for high capacity given the high volume of visitors and large outdoor areas, challenging Non-Line-of-Sight conditions and the dense forest in the parks which absorb the signal," said Juan Jose Luis Cisneros Lopez, CIO, Experiencias Xcaret. "We tested solutions from various vendors and only Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution met our needs. The network allows us to deliver a superior customer experience, while at the same time enables us to run a more efficient operation."

The Alvarion solution delivers high-capacity and reliable Wi-Fi service, which supports connectivity for up to 3,000 visitors daily to the parks as well as the park's internal use. For example, Experiencias Xcaret installed high-definition digital cameras to take photographs of vacationers, especially on rides and adventures where visitors cannot use their own cameras. The high-resolution photographs (18MB), which are automatically transmitted to a central database can be purchased in special kiosks located throughout the parks. Additionally, the network supports internal applications used for the park's operation, such as point of sale terminals at restaurants and CRM platforms that can be accessed from the staff's mobile devices.

"Alvarion is excited to work with Experiencias Xcaret on this unique project. Carrier-grade Wi-Fi is an ideal fit for any organization that needs to efficiently and cost-effectively deploy a network without expensive digging or disruptions of wires and cables to support a wide range of services and applications, both public and private," said Zeev Farkash, Executive Vice President of Sales, Alvarion. "Once again Alvarion's distinctive Wi-Fi technology enables our customers to deliver high-performance connectivity enhancing their business operations."

Alvarion's Wi-Fi offering includes advanced carrier-grade, wireless broadband base stations operating in the 2.4 and 5 GHz unlicensed bands using spatially adaptive Beamforming technology and powerful interference mitigation algorithms to provide optimal connectivity, extended range, increased capacity, indoor penetration and uniform coverage. With this technology, fewer access points can be deployed, significantly reducing installation costs and cabling resulting in lower CAPEX and OPEX. 

Experiencias Xcaret also intends to deploy Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution at its new, 1 million square meter (247 acres) theme park, XENOTES, that will feature walking and biking paths built around five cenotes in a jungle-like scenery.
