Alvarion and Aptilo collaborate to market mobile data offloading

Feb 22, 2013 (TELECOMWORLDWIRE via COMTEX) -- Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ: ALVR) and Aptilo Networks have successfully tested an end-to-end Wi-Fi mobile data offloading solution combining Alvarion's carrier-grade WBSn family of Wi-Fi base stations with the Aptilo Service Management Platform and the Aptilo Access Controller. The companies intend to market the solution globally.


Alvarion's WBSn base stations feature leading radio technology including bi-directional Beamforming 802.11n, unique interference immunity suite, 3x3 MIMO and advanced antenna system, to provide high capacity and ubiquitous coverage in both 2.4 and 5 GHz with a low number of radio units. Supported by 802.1x security and EAP-SIM authentication, the WBSn base stations work seamlessly with Aptilo's platform, which provides carrier-class Wi-Fi service management, SIM-based authentication towards HLR/HSS and integration with the 3G/LTE mobile core for policy and charging.

With the growing use of hungry bandwidth applications on mobile devices, particularly the use of video, service providers are turning to Wi-Fi to satisfy their customers' needs. Alvarion and Aptilo Networks are providing a seamless, easy-to-implement solution addressing the scalability, reliability and security needs of operators deploying large scale Wi-Fi networks for hot spots, hot zones and mobile data offloading. The solution allows operators to benefit from increased network capacity and coverage in high-traffic areas where data congestion is overloading existing cellular networks.
