BRIEF: Alvarion and Aptilo team on Wi-Fi mobile data offloading solution
Feb 21, 2013 (Globes - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Alvarion Ltd. (Nasdaq: ALVR; TASE: ALVR) and Sweden's Aptilo Networks AB have successfully tested an end-to-end Wi-Fi mobile data offloading solution combining Alvarion's WBSn family of Wi-Fi base stations with the Aptilo Service Management Platform and the Access Controller. The company plans to sell the joint solution globally. The companies are conducting a trial of the product with a service provider in Central America.
Alvarion and Aptilo Networks are providing a solution to meet the growing use bandwidth-hungry applications on mobile devices, particularly video. The solution meets the scalability, reliability and security needs of operators deploying large scale Wi-Fi networks for hot spots, hot zones and mobile data offloading, providing network capacity and coverage in high-traffic areas where data congestion is overloading existing cellular networks.
Alvarion EVP marketing & customer services Ulik Broida said, "Mobile data offloading represents a significant opportunity for Alvarion and we are excited to be working with a market leader such as Aptilo Networks in this area."
