Alvarion announces Allegro Networks will use its BreezeMAX system for the first WiMAX deployment in Australia.

Tel Aviv, Israel - Alvarion Ltd. today announced that Allegro will use its BreezeMAX(TM) system for the first WiMAX deployment in Australia, further demonstrating Australia's strategic vision of WiMAX as it offers businesses innovative services. This project means that thousands of businesses in the outer metro and growth corridors across Queensland are expected to benefit from access to a high-speed network providing converged voice and data services.

"WiMAX has a key role in establishing a robust, affordable, and efficient broadband network in Australia," said Ted Pretty, Chairman of Allegro, "Businesses in regional Australia cannot afford to wait any longer to receive advanced broadband services. Alvarion was the one company able to meet our deadlines for true WiMAX infrastructure while maintaining the required quality of service (QoS). Furthermore, Alvarion's WiMAX leadership and knowledge were clearly evidenced by the commercial trials we held with several top tier vendors over the past four months."

Allegro's first-to-market deployment with business grade service confirms that WiMAX is the best broadband infrastructure for leveraging fiber backhaul. Allegro will seek to gain wholesale access to the backhaul fiber and other network elements of the Optus Elders consortium (OPEL). These networks were awarded nearly a billion dollars by the Federal Government as part of the Federal Government's visionary Broadband Connect project for regional Australia.

Allegro joint Managing Director David Waldie said: "We are impressed with the performance of Alvarion's solution. It enables us to deliver up to 12 Mbps throughput at 20 km, and as the standard evolves, speed is expected to increase markedly. We are excited about the opportunities Alvarion's ecosystem can offer us."

"Being chosen by a leading wireless ISP further demonstrates Australia's commitment to WiMAX." said Tzvika Friedman president and CEO of Alvarion. "We are pleased to be selected by Allegro Networks for their first commercial WiMAX deployment, offering them the benefits of our OPEN WiMAX ecosystem, which allows service providers to choose from the best combination of vendors and partners."

The Federal Government's aspirations to broadband Australia with wireless and fiber technologies has been given an unexpected and privately funded kick start, with Allegro Networks building its own network, utilizing the licensed 3.4 GHz spectrum.
