Alvarion works with Hitachi Cable Networks to enable 3G offload
Jan 17, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) --
AlvarionLtd. (NASDAQ: ALVR) said its carrier-grade Wi-Fi base stations are currently being deployed in Tokyo to enable 3G data offload by one of Japan's largest mobile operators.
Alvarion's Wi-Fi base stations will cover major train stations and congested areas in downtown Tokyo business districts. These base stations will provide data connectivity to people and commuters in the area, thus enabling the offload of heavy traffic from the 3G network. This deployment is the initial phase of a nationwide deployment targeting crowded public spaces where data usage is in high demand.
Hitachi Cable Networks, Ltd., Alvarion's partner in Japan, chose Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution after a lengthy testing and selection process, focusing on carrier-grade quality and performance in crowded areas.
Japanese train stations are amongst the busiest in the world and include some of the most creative interactive advertising techniques using smartphones, tablets and data communications, such as the QR (Quick Response) code which enables quick and easy access, creating particularly heavy data traffic which overloads mobile networks.
Alvarion provides optimized wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity challenges of telecom operators, smart cities, security, and enterprise customers.
