Mountain View, CA -- Alvarion Ltd., the world's leading provider of WiMAX and wireless broadband solutions, today announced that regulators in the U.S. and Canada have granted new certifications to its BreezeACCESS VL multipoint wireless broadband solutions operating in the 5.4 GHz and 5.3 GHz license-exempt frequency bands.
The new certifications are evidence of the company's compliance with the new Dynamic Frequency Selection requirements intended for preventing disruptions to military radars and enabling license-exempt fixed wireless broadband operators to increase their 5 GHz spectrum capacity significantly. BreezeACCESS VL is OFDM-based, allowing for non line-of-sight operation to reach more customers in each cell. The solution covers all the unlicensed bands in the 5 GHz band and provides advanced quality of service functionality.
Jeff Thompson, CEO and President of Towerstream, an operator providing high-end voice and data services, and an Alvarion customer noted, "BreezeACCESS VL allows Towerstream to fill a broadband gap and offer large, reliable and affordable broadband pipes, enabling us to bring in very high ARPU customers. By leveraging this new spectrum which offers fast time-to-market and seamless integration into our existing BreezeACCESS network, Towerstream is well positioned to expand its customer base, as well as its lead over the competition."
"Since its release in 2002, Alvarion has continued to enhance BreezeACCESS VL to meet the challenging demands of service providers using 5 GHz," commented Greg Daily, President of Alvarion, Inc. "BreezeACCESS VL remains a critical part of our business and is the primary technology for countless operators in North America. We are extremely pleased to be able to offer the new 5.4 GHz and 5.3 GHz FCC-certified versions so quickly to the market, where they will open many more doors for our customers to increase subscriber revenue."
