ECI Telecom and Alvarion to Expand ELRO's WiMAX Network in Denmark

By Rajani Baburajan, TMCnet Contributing Editor

ECI Telecom (News - Alert), a networking infrastructure solutions provider, and Alvarion, a WiMAX and wireless broadband solutions provider, have announced the expansion of ELRO’s nationwide mobile WiMAX (News - Alert) network.
Following the expansion, ELRO, Denmark, will increase coverage and capacity for voice and broadband Internet services as part of its SkyLine offering. The network expansion at the 3.5 GHz and 3.6 GHz frequency bands will allow current and new customers to benefit from faster Internet speeds and quality voice services.
Mobile Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) technology, for which commercial trials are being deployed in different parts of the world, offers a fast rollout of broadband services for consumers. The wide channel bandwidth and extended coverage offered by mobile WiMAX make this an ideal broadband technology.
The big project enables ELRO to extend its SkyLine service across Denmark reaching a potential of 1.2 million new subscribers.
“Demand for high speed Internet services in Denmark is constantly increasing, and with the challenging goal of covering Denmark with WiMAX by 2010, we feel confident with ECI Telecom and Alvarion (News - Alert) at our side,” said Søren Møller, CTO of broadband, ELRO, in a statement. “The network in Randers has proven to be a great success, and the extension of our service in other regions will bring an affordable solution to the various communication needs of all Denmark residents.”
ELRO has been working closely with ECI Telecom and Alvarion. ELRO’s network has grown substantially since its initial launch with ECI and Alvarion.
“With the expansion of ELRO’s nationwide network, consumers in Denmark will be able to experience the advantages of a robust WiMAX solution,” said Mickey Wilf, director of Nordic Regional Sales, ECI Telecom. “Our multi-service provisioning platforms together with Alvarion’s market leading radio access network technology offers a cost-optimized, one-stop-shop solution for simplified administration, maintenance and provisioning.”
Building on the successful deployment of the WiMAX network in Randers, which started last July, ECI and Alvarion are enabling ELRO to rapid network rollout with ECI Telecom’s XDM and BroadGate multi-service provisioning platforms (MSPP), and Alvarion's field-proven BreezeMAX base station.
“ELRO’s unique competitive position is impressive,” said Tzvika Friedman, president and CEO of Alvarion. “By choosing an OPEN (News - Alert) WiMAX solution based on ECI’s integrated WiMAX and transport network, coupled with our BreezeMAX platform, ELRO will be able to quickly connect the residents of Denmark with high speed broadband access.”
