Alvarion Partners with Hitachi Cable Networks to Enable 3G Offload on a Tier One Mobile Operator Network in Tokyo’s Congested Downtown Districts

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 its carrier-grade Wi-Fi base stations are currently being deployed in Tokyo to enable 3G data offload by one of Japan’s largest mobile operators.

Alvarion’s Wi-Fi base stations will cover major train stations and congested areas in downtown Tokyo business districts. These base stations will provide data connectivity to people and commuters in the area, thus enabling the offload of heavy traffic from the 3G network. This deployment is the initial phase of a nationwide deployment targeting crowded public spaces where data usage is in high demand.

Hitachi Cable Networks, Ltd., Alvarion’s partner in Japan, chose Alvarion’s Wi-Fi solution after a lengthy testing and selection process, focusing on carrier-grade quality and performance in crowded areas.

“We see this project as an important milestone in introducing Alvarion’s Wi-Fi solution to the Japanese market. We believe that Alvarion’s carrier-grade solution is the most effective solution for mobile data traffic in congested areas in Tokyo and in other major cities in Japan,” said Teruaki Tsutsui, President and Board Director, Hitachi Cable Networks. “Alvarion’s Beamforming-based Wi-Fi solution allows us to provide our customer, a tier one mobile operator, the best coverage and capacity in challenging congested downtown areas, thus ensuring the highest quality of service to the end-user and a low cost of ownership.”

“We are honored to serve this major customer in Japan and pleased that Hitachi Cable Networks selected Alvarion’s carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution following a battery of strict testing and head-to-head comparison to our competitors,” stated Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “This win, allows the customer to seamlessly integrate our solution into their 3G network, enabling them to offload a major part of the data traffic in the most congested areas.”

Japanese train stations are amongst the busiest in the world and include some of the most creative interactive advertising techniques using smartphones, tablets and data communications, such as the QR (Quick Response) code which enables quick and easy access, creating particularly heavy data traffic which overloads mobile networks.
