TEL AVIV, Israel -- November 26, 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 ETI, a leading
Internet service provider in Guinea Conakry has chosen its 4Motion® 802.16e
solution to expand its broadband network from the capital city, Conakry, to
cover the entire country covering an area of 246,000 square kilometers (94,981
sq mi).

ETI’s network is designed to deliver voice and data services in the 2.5 GHz
spectrum to a wide range of customers, including both high-end enterprise
customers as well as residential customers.

“After having gained experience with Alvarion’s 4Motion over past four years,
we were confident in our decision to continue using it as we expand our
network from Conakry to cover the rest of the country,” states Latif Taleb,
Founder and CEO of ETI. “Alvarion’s solution demonstrated the necessary QoS,
including wire-quality voice and heavy data services that we require in order
to deliver a superior customer experience.”

Alvarion’s 4Motion is highly suitable to offer both voice and data services
over the same network. With an advanced dynamic scheduling mechanism, the
network prioritizes voice transmission to deliver a large number of voice
sessions simultaneously enabling voice services with a MOS score equivalent to
wire-line quality.

“We are delighted to continue working with ETI on expanding its network.
Winning this expansion project is positive proof of our outstanding technology
and expertise,” states Hezi Lapid, President and CEO at Alvarion. “Alvarion is
known as a technology leader in wireless broadband and as a high-end solution
provider. This is the foundation upon which Alvarion’s leadership position in
Africa was built and will be maintained.”

ETI has been an Alvarion customer for over a decade, using its licensed
solutions to provide internet access, voice and data services, and
backhauling.

About ETI

ETI SA is a modern structure, focused on state-of-the-art technologies. The
purpose of the company is to make modern and powerful technologies available
to clients, allowing them to concentrate on their activities and on the
opportunities to develop and to conquer new markets. ETI emphasizes the
results of the project outcome, and supports its clients by acting as their
accelerators of growth. With an accumulated expertise spanning over two
decades, ETI guarantees a computing architecture and information system that
are reliable, modern and robust.

Internet operator, specialized links and fixed telephony, computing equipment
supplier and systems integrator, the basis of ETI’s experience can be found in
the three specializations that have led the company to the leading position in
New Information and Communication Technologies which it occupies in Guinea.

Through a wide variety of technologies (Radio Local Loops, WiFi, ADSL, VSAT
and Optic Fiber), ETI provides access to High Rate Internet and specialized
links throughout the entire Guinean territory (national coverage). It also
offers value added services that consolidate the position which the company
occupies in its market (hosting services, manager services, video conference,
data center design and execution, technical assistance and after-sales
services). But ETI’s ambition does not stop there. ETI has succeeded in
migrating to the new WiMAX Mobile (802.16^e) technology, in order to bring
Guinea into the new mobility era. This is a new and significant challenge for
ETI, which, through 4G, will offer the fastest and most reliable connection, a
mobile connection accessible to everybody in order to satisfy the expectations
and needs of corporate and residential clients. (www.eti.net.gn)
