Dukcom Chooses Alvarion®'s Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Solutions to Enable Connectivity in Two Rural Networks in Antioquia and Atlantico, Colombia
TEL AVIV, Israel --(Business Wire)--
Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized
wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and
capacity challenges of public and private networks, today announced that Dukcom
LTDA, Alvarion's (News - Alert) partner in Colombia, has chosen the company's carrier-grade
Wi-Fi solution to deliver data, video and voice services in two
rural networks in Antioquia and Atlantico, Colombia.
"We selected Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution for these two rural networks due
to the unmatched coverage, capacity and quality of service their base
stations provide as well as the scalability of their solution," said Carlos
Duque, General Manager, Dukcom. "We are very pleased with our choice
which enabled us to easily provide connectivity to tens of thousands of
new users who previously had limited Internet connection."
In Atlantico, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP
to deploy a Wi-Fi network in 19 small cities, providing coverage to
businesses, households and tourists. The network provides coverage to
60% of the residents of each of these cities at lower cost and up to 50%
better speed than previously available through cellular modems.
Alvarion's scalable solution enables the service provider to expand the
network as needed to reach 100% coverage.
In Antioquia, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP
to connect the main plaza in 115 different small cities across the
province to deliver free Wi-Fi to residents and visitors. The network is
part of the regional ISP's commitment to provide connectivity to rural
areas in Antioquia.
The two networks together serve tens of thousands of users.
"Connectivity is key to enabling rural communities cross the digital
divide, helping them gain access to resources previously difficult to
reach. We were pleased to work with Dukcom to give them the right
solutions for their customers," said Zeev Farkash, EVP of Sales at
Alvarion. "Alvarion's extensive experience in rural broadband
deployments and the breadth of solutions in multiple technologies
enables us to tailor the best-fit solution for the customer, depending
on their scale, capacity, and quality of service demands."
Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution includes advanced carrier-grade,
wireless broadband base stations operating in the 2.4 and 5 GHz
unlicensed bands using spatially adaptive Beamforming
technology and interference mitigation algorithms to provide optimal
connectivity, extended range, increased capacity, indoor penetration and
uniform coverage. With this technology, Dukcom is able to deploy fewer
access points, making this a cost effective solution for rural networks.
