Tel Aviv, Israel -- Alvarion, Ltd., the world's leading provider of WiMAX and wireless broadband solutions, today announced that its BreezeMAX(TM) system was chosen for a deployment project intended to cover various cities in Russia. The new network has already started rolling out with CenterTelecom, one of Russia's seven interregional operators owned by the giant federal holding company Svyazinvest. Alvarion's local partner for this deployment is Cedicom.
Alvarion's BreezeMAX is planned to be deployed in the regions of Moscow, Tambov, Tula, and Vladimir. The first phase of the project is planned as part of the Russian Federation's federal program for connecting hundreds of schools to a WiMAX network, offering numerous users the advantages of high-quality wireless broadband access services.
"Alvarion's BreezeMAX solution allows CenterTelecom to provide Internet access to schools, successfully meeting the deadlines of the national Education project and dealing with the complicated technological decisions involved," said Vadim Kondratov, CTO of CenterTelecom. "In addition, the WiMAX network created within the national project presents a basis for expansion of WiMAX networks in other regions in the future. This will allow CenterTelecom to enlarge the number of provided services and offer equal services to all citizens of the Center of Russia, thus raising the quality of life in the Central Federal District of the Russian Federation."
"We are proud to be chosen by one of the largest operators in Russia for providing WiMAX infrastructure and professional services to this important and fast-growing market," said Rudy Leser, corporate vice president of strategy and marketing for Alvarion.
