TEL AVIV, Israel -- February 11, 2013

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 that Dukcom LTDA,
Alvarion’s partner in Colombia, has chosen the company’s carrier-grade Wi-Fi
solution to deliver data, video and voice services in two rural networks in
Antioquia and Atlantico, Colombia.

“We selected Alvarion’s Wi-Fi solution for these two rural networks due to the
unmatched coverage, capacity and quality of service their base stations
provide as well as the scalability of their solution,” said Carlos Duque,
General Manager, Dukcom. “We are very pleased with our choice which enabled us
to easily provide connectivity to tens of thousands of new users who
previously had limited Internet connection.”

In Atlantico, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP to
deploy a Wi-Fi network in 19 small cities, providing coverage to businesses,
households and tourists. The network provides coverage to 60% of the residents
of each of these cities at lower cost and up to 50% better speed than
previously available through cellular modems. Alvarion’s scalable solution
enables the service provider to expand the network as needed to reach 100%

In Antioquia, Dukcom worked with the regional telephone provider and ISP to
connect the main plaza in 115 different small cities across the province to
deliver free Wi-Fi to residents and visitors. The network is part of the
regional ISP’s commitment to provide connectivity to rural areas in Antioquia.

The two networks together serve tens of thousands of users.

“Connectivity is key to enabling rural communities cross the digital divide,
helping them gain access to resources previously difficult to reach. We were
pleased to work with Dukcom to give them the right solutions for their
customers,” said Zeev Farkash, EVP of Sales at Alvarion. “Alvarion’s extensive
experience in rural broadband deployments and the breadth of solutions in
multiple technologies enables us to tailor the best-fit solution for the
customer, depending on their scale, capacity, and quality of service demands.”

Alvarion’s carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution includes advanced carrier-grade,
wireless broadband base stations operating in the 2.4 and 5 GHz unlicensed
bands using spatially adaptive Beamforming technology and interference
mitigation algorithms to provide optimal connectivity, extended range,
increased capacity, indoor penetration and uniform coverage. With this
technology, Dukcom is able to deploy fewer access points, making this a cost
effective solution for rural networks.
