Washington, DC, October 7, 2010
— Alvarion Ltd. (NASDAQ:ALVR), the world's leading provider of 4G networks in the Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) market, and Barrett Xplore Inc. (BXI - www.barrettxplore.com), Canada's largest rural broadband internet provider, today announced plans to deploy the first national 4G network in Canada. Under the agreement, Alvarion will supply its end-to-end 4Motion® 4G solution, including subscriber devices, along with professional services to support this significant country-wide rollout. The new state-of-the-art network will allow Barrett to expand its rural broadband offerings into new service areas while allowing additional service options to existing customers.

Barrett's planned 4G wireless network will provide services across Canada's vast geography. Initially, services will focus on high-speed data with expansion to include VoIP and other services in the future.

Barrett selected Alvarion following a comprehensive evaluation process as the sole provider for its 4G wireless network, which is designed for a smooth transition to TD-LTE as the operator's strategy evolves.

"We are pleased to be working with Alvarion to expand our broadband offerings in large areas of the country. We plan to introduce the latest 4G services so our customers can enjoy the benefits of top-quality broadband, at competitive prices" said John Maduri, CEO of Barrett. "Alvarion has a strong track record of deploying 4G networks around the globe and its solution provides the flexibility to evolve toward a TD-LTE network."

This win reflects Alvarion's success in deploying large 4G projects, and is another indication of its continued focus on high growth markets where the adoption of broadband services is expected to accelerate over the coming years.

"We are proud to have been chosen by Barrett for this significant 4G rollout that will bring broadband services to many underserved areas in Canada. We are known for delivering tailored, end-to-end broadband wireless networks that meet the specific requirements of our customers," said Eran Gorev, president and CEO of Alvarion. "Our future-proof 4G network platform enables real-time high speed wireless services through a flexible architecture that helps operators minimize the total cost of ownership of networks. Together with Barrett, we will build the network with the latest 4G features and functionalities, some of which don't exist in the market today."

Alvarion's 4Motion 4G solution provides state-of-the-art functionality in one of the industry's most deployed 4G platforms with hundreds of commercial deployments in service around the globe.

Some details on the network itself.
And always remembering that if there is not enough backhaul capacity(tower to Internet) or server capacity(users data in and out of the Internet), the network will suffer in speeds.

Alvarion’s 4Motion Open WiMAX Solution
29 July 2009

Alvarion’s 4Motion Open WiMAX Solution is an end-to-end mobile WiMAX solution that allows subscribers to access broadband on the go anywhere anytime. The solution can be used for business and personal situations in rural, suburban or urban areas where infrastructure resources are scarce.

The 4Motion features industry-leading core network WiMAX technologies such as the SentieM technologies that improve coverage, capacity and QoS by utilizing advanced antenna technologies, radio resource management, radio network architecture and media technologies.

Components of the 4Motion Solution include the WiMAX radio access network (RAN), the WiMAX Core Networking, the end user equipment and applications. These components work symbiotically to support the solution while providing the best mobile coverage for end-users.

I'm guessing by the sounds of this article they are using DragonWave to backhaul the network with and from what the OP said, using Alvarion for their ptmp to the customers.

What does Xplornet use for backhaul with the Motorola product? I've seen some on Motorola's pages that do not have much capacity and are based on the subscriber units design.

I see DragonWave use Microwave, which is great for a high capacity backhaul. Just need to get it up nice and high to not scare the neighbors. Even though the dish is tiny in comparison to some others.

Barrett Xplore's investment in this new 4G terrestrial network will be approximately $150 million. Construction of the terrestrial network - capable of 40 Mbps download speeds - began in the fall. When complete, that network will deliver speeds up to 100 Mbps and will consist of 1,200 towers strategically located in rural areas. Through 2011 and 2012, the terrestrial network will be complemented by a 4G satellite network capable of speeds of up to 25 Mbps.

"DragonWave delivers a full suite of high-capacity packet backhaul solutions that enable service providers around the globe to achieve rapid, cost-effective backhaul capacity gains and expansion of geographic market coverage," said Peter Allen, President and CEO, DragonWave. "We are pleased to be working closely with Barrett Xplore to construct a scalable and cost-effective network that will provide true 4G service to Canadians in even the remotest areas."

Burlock added that Barrett Xplore has enjoyed a successful relationship with DragonWave for several years that has helped the company "to achieve industry-leading economics for the provision of microwave bandwidth to support our fixed wireless network nationally. DragonWave is a world-class provider, and we are pleased to have established this mutually beneficial relationship."

From what that last paragraph says I would say Xplornet uses Dragonwave as a backhaul supplier right now and have been for a while. The article says they have had a business relationship for several years

From reading various mainstream media articles, The media has used the term "several" to mean two years instead of lets say roughly 7 years.
But then again, terms are being re-written, some online encyclopedias says several means "more than two". But it used to be a couple and a few and then several. Or at least thats what people I know used. Lazy English has taken over anyways. Check out the documentary "Idiocracy" for proof. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0387808/ Actually it's just a movie, but shows how a big chunk of North America is no longer smarter than a fifth grader.


Many people don't even understand what 4G is anyways. Even the open source WiFi coalition had to cave to all these providers calling third generation products, due to tweaks in speed, fourth generation. But speed increases do somewhat qualify as 4G. Since speeds have greatly improved over the products from around 2001. The Telus cellular Internet network is doing something like a dual channel to double speeds, even though someone would have to be next to a tower to get those quoted speeds. But until caps on wireless go higher, what use is a speed that will cost you hundreds of dollars if you go over(thats unless the Provider shuts down the signal or reduces speeds to dialup, for going over the cap).


But from a quick look, DragonWave has higher capacity backhaul units, than Motorola.

Here is Xplornets packet hardware provider. It allows for WiMax or LTE.

........According to Eric Andrews, the manufacturer’s director of product marketing, the SmartCore platform’s capabilities include traffic management that allow carriers to track the way subscribers use data and understand where congestion is.

“It’s a great place to both analyze traffic and enforce network policies,” Andrews said. Tellabs claims also SmartCore can also increase network efficiency by offloading as much as 70 per cent of traffic at the network edge.......
Heres a explanation of offloading traffic at the network edge.
