Supporting multiple services, Alvarion's carrier-grade solution delivers a true smart city network connecting municipal centers, hospitals and primary healthcare centers, schools and libraries

TEL AVIV, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Alvarion®Ltd. (NAS: ALVR) , a global provider of optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced that the company has deployed its best-in-class carrier-grade wireless broadband solution for the implementation of Mar del Plata's Smart City network. This network is the driving force behind better governance in municipality services, and the improvement of life among residents and tourists.The project is valued at over $1 million.

Selected for its unmatched reliability and operational efficiency, XN Networking and Anixter International Inc., Alvarion's partners in Argentina, deployed Alvarion's BreezeMAX® Extreme base stations and CPEs and BreezeNET® B, managed by the AlvariStar Network Management System, to deliver a complete and robust solution for the entire Smart City implementation in the 4.9 to 5.35 GHz unlicensed frequencies. This solution provides Point-to-Multipoint as well as wireless backhaul while offering advanced 'end-to-end' Quality of Service (QoS) that allows multiple scenarios for public and private connectivity.

"In Mar del Plata, we wanted to create a digital city to serve both the government and our people. We did this by choosing a secure wireless network that had the ability to be efficient and effective while providing public and private connectivity," stated Eng. Renato Rosello,IT sub-secretary, Municipality of Mar del Plata. "This network has launched our city into the digital era allowing residents access to resources for the highest level of education and healthcare services enabling personal growth and prosperity. The advanced infrastructure will support our plans to attract and build a significant information technology industry while creating a safe city environment to foster tourism."

Mar del Plata is Argentina's 7th largest city with a population of over 600,000 and a sophisticated tourist infrastructure. The Smart City network connects dozens of municipal centers including libraries, community centers, schools and other educational centers, delivering data connectivity, VoIP and video applications. The City's secured private network connects municipal offices as well as hospitals and primary healthcare centers to allow sharing of sensitive information in a highly protected network within each organization. The City capitalizes on this network infrastructure to also enable indoor and outdoor public Internet access, serving both local residents and the tourist community.

"When we build Smart Cities, we can immediately see the power of how a government can positively affect the quality of life in the community," said Eng. Ariel Scaliter, President, XN Networking. "By using a Carrier-grade reliable network such as the solution from Alvarion, the city can instantly give residents, businesses and tourists the ability to prosper and enjoy their city, and allow the city government and other agencies to better serve these sectors for years to come."

"Our multi-technology platform is a proven Smart City facilitator with the ability to provide both public and private connectivity across a secured network," said Zeev Farkash, EVP Sales, Alvarion. "Knowing that our solution has helped improve the quality of life for yet another city enforces our goal to move forward with our technological advancements for the digital future."
