CAPE TOWN, South Africa -- November 14, 2012

Alvarion^® Ltd.  (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless
broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity
challenges of public and private networks, announced today that Internet
Technologies Group (ITG) of Africa has chosen Alvarion to provide the wireless
broadband connectivity for three of its subsidiary groups; ITA (Internet
Technologies Angola), ITN (Internet Technologies Namibia), ITZ (Internet
Technologies Zambia). The three projects combined are valued at approximately
$2 million.

With a significant presence throughout Africa, delivering a variety of
products and services across 14 African countries, ITG’s mission is to provide
state-of-the-art solutions to their business and corporate customers whose
demand for data connectivity has increased rapidly. Alvarion helped ITG tailor
a wireless broadband solution to match the needs of its local customers in
Angola, Namibia and Zambia.

“Working with Alvarion on these three projects, we see their strength and
professionalism coming from many years of field experience in Africa,” said
Barney Harmse, CEO of the ITG Group. “Within a short time frame, we were able
to install a complete network covering the entire capital of Namibia and we
are looking forward to the Angola and Zambia projects that will be sure to
follow with the same attention to service and high commitment level.”

ITA, Internet Technologies Angola, is migrating the current network from FDD
to TDD technology. Alvarion’s 4Motion solution in the 3.5 GHz frequency has
been selected as the technology of choice to upgrade this network to an
802.16e network that is TD-LTE ready. This solution will be installed around
the capital city Luanda, as well as in Lobito, Benguela and Lubango, and will
provide reliable Internet connectivity to SOHO (Small Office/Home Office) and
business customers.

ITN, Internet Technologies Namibia, deployed Alvarion’s 4Motion® solution in
the 2.5 GHz frequency covering the entire capital city of Windhoek, Oshakati,
and Walvis Bay, Namibia’s largest commercial port city, with high speed
Internet and data services. ITN disassembled an older version of an 802.16d
network and upgraded the entire network with updated technology, Alvarion’s
4Motion 802.16e solution.

ITZ, Internet Technologies Zambia, will deploy Alvarion’s BreezeCOMPACT
solution in the 3.5 GHz frequency. This state-of-the-art solution will deliver
data and Internet services to business and residents in the capital city
Lusaka as well as in the second and third largest cities in Zambia, Ndola and
Kitwe. With LTE Advanced ready technology, the BreezeCOMPACT will be able to
serve the growing bandwidth needs of Lusaka’s business and industry.

“As Africa’s leading provider of wireless broadband solutions, we are pleased
to be able to deliver all solutions for ITG’s three major projects across
Africa,” stated Hezi Lapid, President and CEO of Alvarion. “Alvarion’s
multi-technology portfolio will provide each city with the appropriate
technological elements to fit the growth and profitability requirements of its
business and people.”

Alvarion is participating in Africa’s largest telecommunications show,
AfricaCom, Cape Town, South Africa, November 13-15, booth D10a. To schedule a
personal meeting please contact corporate-sales@alvarion.com.
