Alvarion Ltd. has announced an agreement with New Zealand-based CallPlus to have its BreezeMAX 3500 solution deployed. The solution will offer WiMAX data, voice and video services to businesses and residents in southeast New Zealand.
Focused in the district of Whangarei in the Northland region, Siemens is the local partner for the WiMAX network and is responsible for systems integration and ongoing local support.
BreezeMAX is Alvarion's WiMAX platform designed according to the IEEE 802.16 standards and using OFDM technology for non-line-of-sight (NLOS) functionality. Its design supports broadband speeds and quality of service (QoS) to enable carriers to offer triple play broadband services to thousands of subscribers in a single base station.
Since its launch in mid-2004, BreezeMAX has been successfully deployed in over 180 installations in more than 80 countries around the world.
CallPlus has established a new company, Blue Reach, to build the WiMAX local access network and provide services to consumers and businesses.
