[4G network available to journalists, event organizers and visitors at the 2009 World Swimming Championships in Rome using Linkem's WiMAX network and Alvarion's BreezeMAX USB device and indoor CPE.]

Alvarion and Linkem will hold an exclusive press cocktail event at the championship hospitality booth during the evening of July 22nd. The joint event will be located inside the Foro Italico, hospitality village in the American Bar.

“This network built in cooperation with Alvarion will provide a glimpse of advanced wireless services we are bringing throughout Italy using the cutting edge capabilities of WiMAX technology,” said Davide Rota, CEO for Linkem. “The network will provide high-speed wireless communication to journalists, event organizers and visitors. Journalists will have the ability to report from the event in real-time, without delay.”

“This innovative application of 4G WiMAX technology presents seamless wireless connectivity for journalists from around the world covering and attending the event providing them with stable and reliable communication,” said Berge Ayvazian, 4G industry analyst from Yankee Group. “This project also showcases Linkem’s expansion of 4G services in Italy, providing mobile broadband connectivity everywhere it is needed, even at sporting events.”

The primary end user devices used for accessing the WiMAX service will include Alvarion’s recently launched BreezeMAX® USB device and indoor CPE. BreezeMAX USB is a compact wireless modem designed for fixed and mobile subscribers and enables plug-and-play operation with easy-to-install and self-provisioning capabilities. This product is suitable for laptop and desktop users and will allow them a continuous broadband connectivity from any location, any time.

“As Italy opens up to the benefits of WiMAX technology, consumers will demand ever increasing bandwidth irrespective of where they are located,” said Tzvika Friedman, president and CEO of Alvarion. “Linkem’s network at the world championship will showcase the latest broadband wireless applications available in the market today. Through our end-to-end turnkey WiMAX solutions, we can address all the connectivity requirements for the event, and ultimately provide a very good user experience for the event’s visitors.”

Alvarion will also enable TV coverage in the Hospitality Village booth through an outdoor CPE and camera on WiMAX feed.
