Alvarion, a leading provider of wireless broadband and specialized mobile networks, today announced the availability of a primary voice service over WiMAX networks enabled by the latest edition of BreezeMAX.
Primary voice over WiMAX capability is of particular interest to pioneering service providers looking to offer voice services and broadband to areas with little or no existing telecom infrastructure.
Alvarion voice and broadband data WiMAX networks can be built quickly and without heavy investments in a complete VoIP implementation as it can be deployed using the existing TDM infrastructure capacity of V5.2 legacy switches.

“Alternative and incumbent carriers can now use WiMAX to open their networks to major technology evolution in terms of applications,” said Rudy Leser, Alvarion’s corporate vice president of strategy and marketing. “By adopting WiMAX as their network strategy, carriers will enjoy 4G applications as well as significant capital and operating costs savings. We are seeing strong demand for this type of open infrastructure solution where new services can be made available while moving to services such as voice over IP.”
Leading the WiMAX market with the most widely deployed WiMAX system in the world, Alvarion has the most extensive deployments and product portfolios in the industry covering the full range of frequency bands with both fixed and mobile solutions.
