Alvarion Technologies Releases New Indoor Access Point Managed by Powerful Cloud Controller for Large Scale Carrier Wi-Fi Networks

Limitless High-Speed and Secure Connectivity Delivered By Most Complete Wi-Fi Package on the Market.

Alvarion Technologies, a global provider of wireless solutions including Wi-Fi, Point to Point and Point to Multi Point, announced today the release of their WBSIac Indoor Access Point (AP) and Arena Controller.

Alvarion Technologies’ carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution WBSIac is a high-performance IEEE 802.11ac and backward compatible 802.11a/b/g/n indoor access point controlled by the Arena Cloud Controller. WBSIac provides high throughput and trustworthy coverage required by challenging business applications.

“Alvarion Technologies provides a complete end to end Wi-Fi package with a leading radio management software including both Indoor/Outdoor AP and a cloud controller,” said Zeev Gross, VP R&D of Alvarion Technologies. “Alvarion Technologies’ experienced engineers have developed interference mitigation techniques that are based on our proprietary technology and legacy products. Our Arena controller provides the network focal point for Wi-Fi AP management and access control mediation in order to simplify network management and provisioning. We are proud to offer the most complete Wi-Fi package on the market and to continue to develop superior products and technology.”

The WBSIac is controlled, managed and analyzed by Alvarion Technologies’ very own cloud controller, the Arena. The Arena is a powerful and cost effective Wi-Fi mediation device between the operator’s control core and Wi-Fi infrastructure. Arena operates a scalable network architecture through a centralized control plane and distributed data plan. Acting as a focal point for controlling the Wi-Fi cloud, the controller complements existing Alvarion Technologies carrier-grade Wi-Fi solutions. By offering support for wholesale business models, with multiple hosted carriers and full security and service isolation, the Arena supports both Indoor and Outdoor APs.

Alvarion Technologies’ flexible Wi-Fi package, now with the addition of WBSIac and Arena Controller, combines superior grade performance and unlimited scalability at significantly lower costs for enterprises, governments and mobile operators in both rural and metro areas.

Alvarion® Introduces the BreezeULTRA™ Dual Radio, a High Capacity Point-To-Point Solution Delivering 500 Mbps Throughput

A carrier-grade backhaul solution offers a unique set of features including auto failover and recovery safeguard, data resilience and integrity

Successful Beta test completed at leading agricultural manufacturer in Turkey


CommunicAsia 2013, Singapore, June 18, 2013 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 unveiled the BreezeULTRA™ dual radio, a high capacity point-to-point platform delivering 500 Mbps throughput.  

The BreezeULTRA dual radio 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.

“The BreezeULTRA dual radio draws on Alvarion’s long-standing tradition of radio innovation.  It is currently the only point-to-point platform that combines this unique set of features of high capacity, radio redundancy, and data resilience and integrity in a single box, offering our customers a distinctive value proposition at a competitive price,” said Assaf Katan, Acting Chief Executive Officer of Alvarion.  

With exceptional reliability and carrier-grade Quality of Service (QoS), the new BreezeULTRA dual radio offers a better customer experience and the lowest cost per Mbps on the market.  Available in the unlicensed 5 GHz frequency band, it is well suited for a wide range of applications such as backhaul in the telecom market, smart cities, oil and gas, education, video surveillance and public safety.  

The single radio BreezeULTRA is software upgradable to the dual radio version, enabling a “pay as you grow” approach.

Successful Beta Test Completed
The BreezeULTRA dual radio has been deployed over the past several weeks at certain facilities operated by the Keskinoğlu Group, a leading agricultural manufacturer in Turkey.  Replacing a competitor’s solution, the BreezeULTRA is providing database backup between locations.  The network was deployed by NET ILETISIM, Alvarion’s partner in Turkey.  

Following the completion of the Beta test, the Keskinoğlu Group made the following statement:  “We have been so pleased with the performance of the BreezeULTRA dual radio that we placed our order for the solution to be permanently installed before the trial ended. The BreezeULTRA dual radio proved to be the cost effective solution which met our requirements for bandwidth and reliability.”

“We strive to offer our customers the best networking solutions available.  Therefore, we were eager to take part in testing this innovative solution from Alvarion and are pleased with the results and the response from our customer,” Gamze Şentürk, International Sales Manager, NET ILETISIM.  “Given its feature set, the BreezeULTRA is a truly competitive point-to-point solution on the market.”
