Compact GSM Solutions - Alvarion

Alvarion Extends Leadership in Compact GSM Solutions With New Smaller UltraWAVE Products
February 14, 2006

Micro BTS/BS Plus and X40 Switch Offer Low Entry Points  While Supporting Full Functionality Including Value-Added Services

3GSM Barcelona, Spain,  -- Alvarion Ltd., (NASDAQ: ALVR), the world’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions and specialized mobile networks, today extended its leadership in compact GSM solutions by introducing two new network products, the UltraWAVE Micro BTS/BS Plus and the UltraWAVE X40 MSC. Offering service providers lower entry points when building and augmenting GSM networks, both products support full GSM features, including value-added services, and are the newest additions to Alvarion’s popular UltraWAVE product line—an ideal solution for small to medium networks and specialized applications with quick deployment and seamless integration into existing wireless and wireline network infrastructures.

The Micro BTS/BS Plus, at about one half the size of Alvarion’s current BTS/BS Plus, and the X40 MSC, at about one-fourth the size of the current X100 MSC, represent significant breakthroughs in reduced size delivering unparalleled value and an accelerated return on investment. Also sufficiently scalable and flexible to adapt to changing carrier needs, both products will be commercially available by the end of the first quarter of this year.

“These products are exciting additions to our widely-deployed UltraWAVE product line as the first full featured GSM systems of their size,” said Amir Rosenzweig, President of Alvarion, Inc. “Operators deploying either product will receive the same features as our larger systems without sacrificing the ability to scale their networks. Alvarion customers have come to expect cost-effective, easy-to-deploy GSM systems for remote and specialized applications from us, and the Micro BTS/BS Plus and X40 MSC expand our leadership in this area.”

Operating in the GSM frequencies of 850, 900, 1800, and 1900 MHz, the UltraWAVE BTS/BS Plus is housed in a single 19 inch rack-mounted chassis and uses the same internal modules and software as our full-sized UltraWAVE BTS/BS Plus. Omni and sectorized configurations up to S444 are also supported. Alvarion’s UltraWAVE X40 MSC is a full featured, digital switch for GSM networks, supporting all telephony services including integrated value-added services such as prepaid, voice mail and SMS. It can support up to 40,000 subscribers and 64 E1 ports for backhaul. The X40 is designed around a dual-platform load sharing redundant architecture with built-in HLR/VLR and full subscriber management features.
