Alvarion Partners with Hitachi Cable Networks to Enable 3G Offload on a Tier One Mobile Operator Network in Tokyo's Congested Downtown Districts
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
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 (News - Alert) 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 (News - Alert) 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.
"We see this project as an important milestone in introducing Alvarion's
Wi-Fi solution to the Japanese market. We believe that Alvarion's
carrier-grade solution is the most effective solution for mobile data
traffic in congested areas in Tokyo and in other major cities in Japan,"
said Teruaki Tsutsui, President and Board Director, Hitachi Cable
Networks. "Alvarion's Beamforming-based
Wi-Fi solution allows us to provide our customer, a tier one mobile
operator, the best coverage and capacity in challenging congested
downtown areas, thus ensuring the highest quality of service to the
end-user and a low cost of ownership."
"We are honored to serve this major customer in Japan and pleased that
Hitachi Cable Networks selected Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution
following a battery of strict testing and head-to-head comparison to our
competitors," stated Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion.
"This win, allows the customer to seamlessly integrate our solution into
their 3G network, enabling them to offload a major part of the data
traffic in the most congested areas."
Japanese train stations ae 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.
