Alvarion® Deploys City-Wide 4Motion® Solution for Wireless Broadband Network in Ghana

Alvarion® Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, announced today that BusyInternet, a leading Internet service provider in Ghana deployed its 4Motion® solution in Accra, Ghana, a city of approximately 2.3 million which acts as the business and financial capital of the country. Alvarion’s advanced 4Motion solution replaces an existing solution in order to deliver reliable and quality bandwidth and services needed from corporate customers.

BusyInternet is an award-winning ISP (Chamber of Marketing Ghana (CIMG) Best ISP 2009, 2010 & 2011) whose target client base is mostly corporations and businesses from all sectors, including the financial community in Accra and Tema. With a promise of superior customer service and more than 98.7% uptime, BusyInternet needed to upgrade its existing network infrastructure to handle the sensitive business information and heavy bandwidth needs of its customers while at the same time deliver a high-quality user experience.

“As an ISP operating in the high-end segment of the market, we place very specific demands on the network we deploy in order to deliver the high-quality user experience we promise our customers,” states Praveen Sadalage, Managing Director of BusyInternet. “The 4Motion solution met these demands for superior reliability and quality of service.”

To support its broadband Internet connectivity services, BusyInternet chose Alvarion’s 4Motion solution operating in the 2.3 GHz spectrum to replace its existing Canopy® solution and deliver reliable, high bandwidth connectivity to corporate and business customers. Alvarion’s 4Motion solution is a field proven, end-to-end solution that helps operators offer a variety of IP-based voice and high speed data services over a unified platform using 802.16e technology.

“We are excited to have won BusyInternet as a customer in Ghana and help them maintain a state-of-the art network to better serve their customers and effectively support their business model,” states Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “Alvarion has been a leader in providing wireless broadband connectivity in Africa and we continue to see great opportunities for us in this region for both our licensed and unlicensed businesses.”

BusyInternet is planning on expanding its 4Motion-based network to additional cities in Ghana, including Kumasi, Tamale, Tarkwa and Takoradi among other major markets.
