Alvarion Ltd., a provider of optimised wireless broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, capacity and coverage challenges of public and private networks, has unveiled its new BreezeCOMPACT compact base station. BreezeCOMPACT is a zero-footprint wireless broadband base station based on Alvarion’s field-proven 4Motion 4G technology designed to help carriers face the increasing challenge of delivering high-quality indoor and outdoor coverage in a cost-effective manner. BreezeCOMPACT is an ideal solution for operators who seek the assured quality and reduced risks offered by Alvarion equipment and vast experience.
BreezeCOMPACT, based on common Alvarion architecture, is easily integrated with Alvarion’s 4Motion 4G solution to enable coverage and capacity extension in areas where a multi-sector macro base station is not needed. BreezeCOMPACT is in a class of its own, with a small form- factor that fits Micro deployment requirements, but is also equipped with a Macro base station-feature set in terms of capacity capabilities, number of users and services. The BreezeCOMPACT utilizes field-proven 4Motion modules and ecosystem elements, such as ASN-GW, AAA, EMS and end-user devices to maximize the cost-effectiveness of any deployment.
BreezeCOMPACT incorporates the most advanced RF radio features such as 4X4 Radio and Beamforming to deliver the highest level of service and reliability. The miniature base station is an all-in-one modem and radio that can be easily and flexibly mounted on rooftops, walls, poles and towers with a single installation point. BreezeCOMPACT is a 16e base station that is TD-LTE ready by implementing Alvarion’s SDR (Software Defined Radio) technology. BreezeCOMPACT will be commercially available during the first half of 2012.
“High-quality services are a growing challenge for operators, as subscriber bases continue to grow and ubiquitous data, voice and video connectivity are expected,” commented Shaul Ben Nun, VP of Alvarion’s Carrier Business Unit. “Our offering is based on meeting those needs in the most technologically sound and cost-effective way possible.”
“Because of their increasing size and scope, today’s networks are becoming multifaceted entities with different technologies meeting different needs in various areas of its operation. Our offering is consistently being enhanced with powerful new products like the BreezeCOMPACT to help our customers address these needs in the smartest and most efficient way,” commented Eran Gorev, president and CEO of Alvarion.
