ROI Improvements - Alvarion

Alvarion Launches MPOTS Solution for High Density, Cost-Effective Voice Services; ROI Improvements with Extension of WALKair 1000 Product Line

TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 10, 2005--Alvarion Ltd., (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world's leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced the launch of the MPOTS extension of its WALKair(TM)1000, featuring high-density POTS (plain old telephone service) interfaces to offer significant improvements in price per line. The combination of better economics and quick roll-out enabled by WALKair's wireless configuration improves carriers' business models and increases return on investment.

MPOTS supports up to 64 telephone lines in a single customer premises equipment (CPE) unit. Combined with WALKair's ability to support a combination of POTS, additional TDM services and other IP services, carriers benefit by lower capital expenditures, while offering both traditional telephony and fast Internet access.

Among other enhancements, MPOTS can accommodate up to 9600 POTS ports per sector in a 28MHz channel. By operating in 3.5 GHz band as well as in LMDS frequencies, carriers receive several network options with regard to regulators and spectrum expenses. Battery backup of the MPOTS CPE qualifies Alvarion's MPOTS solution as the end user's primary line.

"Alvarion has identified a wide range of applications for MPOTS, including campus environments, phone supermarkets, business parks, and multi-dwelling residences," said Rudy Leser, Vice President of Marketing of Alvarion. "With features that significantly increase carrier ROI by multiplying subscribers with less equipment, we expect that MPOTS extension to WALKair will soon be deployed throughout the world."

MPOTS is an extension of the WALKair(TM)1000 product line, Alvarion's point-to-multi-point broadband wireless access system for carriers targeting small and medium enterprises (SMEs), multi-tenant and multi-dwelling units (MTUs and MDUs), SOHOs, industrial, retail and residential subscribers. Operating in the 3.5, 10.5 and 26 GHz frequency bands, WALKair(TM) maximizes data throughput with a total cell capacity of 256 Mbps in a 28 MHz channel and more than 512 Mbps in a 56 MHz channel. As a result, a single WALKair(TM) 1000 base station can support up to 2048 CPEs with peak data burst rates of up to 4 Mbps.
