Alvarion® Launches Advanced BreezeMAX® PRO 6000 CPE to Enable a Cost-Effective Solution for Deployments in Fixed and Mobile Environments and Applications
Deployment already completed at Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada’s leading rural broadband provider
TEL AVIV, Israel–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Alvarion® Ltd. (ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced the new BreezeMAX PRO 6000 CPE with technological breakthroughs for enhanced performance and simplicity. The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 CPE works together with Alvarion’s multi-technology portfolio of products creating a complete ecosystem for best cost-performance from end-to-end.
The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is designed with extended coverage and high data throughput. Operators can benefit from a high performance solution, that is simple to install, maintain and operate, helping to reduce CAPEX and OPEX. This advanced outdoor CPE offers a wide frequency range from 3.3 GHz up to 3.8 GHz. The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 saves time and money with innovative installation breakthroughs, such as LED and Tone connectivity indicators, outdoor voice and data on one unit, and a single cable for both voice and data.
By incorporating customer feedback and years of hands-on field experience, the BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is released with a full software feature set (IPCS-NAT, IPCS-BM, ETH-CS, improved ND&S, class 5 voice services) minimizing compatibility issues and allowing customers to quickly connect more subscribers by just adding the CPE to the existing network.
“The technological foresight in this new CPE delivers our vision of multi-technology platforms to our customers,” states Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “By combining product interoperability, we have created a paradigm shift in the way our customers are able to build and provide network coverage with the assured quality offered by Alvarion and our technically-proven track record.”
The BreezeMAX PRO 6000 is interoperable with the newly introduced BreezeCOMPACT base station, delivering a simple to operate, cost-effective, high capacity network solution. This solution utilizes the high antenna gain and transmit power of the BreezeMAX PRO 6000, together with the small tower footprint and high capacity of the BreezeCOMPACT to reduce the density of base stations required in a network layout. The result is a feasible deployment in rural areas that previously required a large Macro installation.
“We approached Alvarion with a need to expand quickly, reduce cost and improve flexibility of our 4G deployment,” said David Miles, Chief Network Officer at Xplornet Communications Inc., Canada’s leading rural broadband provider. “By combining the BreezeCOMPACT base station with the outdoor CPE solution we will be able to provide a superior broadband solution for our customers.”
