Alvarion Announces 108 Mbps Backhaul in 5 GHz Band

Alvarion introduced its carrier-class BreezeNET B100 wireless bridging solution that operates in the licensed-exempt 5 GHz band and offers up to 108Mbps in point-to-point broadband access and backhaul applications. Available in Q3 2006, the B100 could be used to support real time video, voice, and data services and the backhauling of high WiMAX broadband access and other networks, including those built using Alvarion's BreezeMAX and BreezeACCESS VL products. It also targets building-to-building enterprise connectivity and cellular backhaul.

Currently in field trials, the BreezeNET B100 will be available first in the 5.8 GHz and 5.4GHz bands and can be co-located with other Alvarion products.
