Alvarion^® Ltd.  (NASDAQ: ALVR), a global provider of optimized wireless
broadband solutions addressing the connectivity, coverage and capacity
challenges of public and private networks, today announced major enhancements
to its Alvarion Partner Program & Portal including new partnership options,
online certifications, incentives, deployment modulation tools and more, all

“Alvarion recognizes the vital role that partners play in delivering products
and services,” says Jason Fiorello, Product Manager at Winncom Technologies

materials, sales tools, and resources all in one location. This is an
indispensable resource for keeping our team and our VAR’s up-to-date on the
latest Alvarion products, technical trainings, events and promotions.”

Reconstructed Program

Alvarion’s Partner Program provides focused benefits to three types of
go-to-market partners: Channel Partners, Alliance Partners and Distributors.

Additionally, Alvarion is launching an unique Expert Partner program, which is
designed for highly specialized system integrators that demonstrate expertise
in deploying complex wireless broadband networks in specific vertical markets.
The program will facilitate a market place allowing unique information sharing
between non-competing segment specific partners worldwide to break into new
markets more effectively.

Alvarion also launched a Consultant program, enabling consultants to enjoy
in-depth knowledge of products, solution and use the tools, without any
commercial commitment or requirement, thus preserving professional
objectivity.

Alvarion’s intuitive and enhanced Partner Portal delivers a personalized
experience where users can customize their dashboard based on specific needs
and preferences. The Portal allows partners to access marketing resources,
anywhere anytime including from their Smartphone and tablets, by product or
market segment. Additionally, it facilitates promotions, warranty activation,
a technical resource center and more.

Alvarion’s new Partner Portal facilitates many unique commercial advantages
for Partners:

  *Qualified leads and lead management
  *Online sales tool – video capacity, business case and cost-savings
    calculators
  *Deal registration with commercial benefits
  *Online sales training & certifications – on-demand training modules, in
    English, Spanish and Portuguese, giving partners increased control over
    their training and development
  *Starter Kits and Promotions

“The new portal was designed to provide tangible business value to our
partners and tools that enable them to gain a competitive edge,” said Gal
Biran, VP Channel Business at Alvarion. “Our goal has always been to empower
our partners and allow them to tap into our and each others’ areas of deep
domain expertise, and we are pleased to deliver new enhancements that continue
