Alvarion Collaborates With WifiSafe to Deploy Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Networks in
Leading Spanish Hotel Chain

Outdoor Wi-Fi Equipment Provides Ubiquitous Indoor and Outdoor Coverage
Throughout Hotels Resulting in Low Total Cost of Ownership and Minimal
Intrusion to Guests and Scenery

TEL AVIV, Israel, April 17, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- 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 WifiSafe, Alvarion's partner in Spain,
deployed its carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution to deliver voice, data and video
services in Spanish-based hotels from the H10 Hotels Chain.

"We chose to deploy Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution as it was an ideal
fit to our customers' requirements," commented Francisco Menéndez, CEO,
WifiSafe. "The solution is easy to install and configure, resulting in quick
testing and deployment periods. The high performance radios provide extended
reach covering both indoor and outdoor with very few base stations, resulting
in robust and reliable Wi-Fi coverage despite challenging non-line-of-sight
conditions and low total cost of ownership."

H10 Hotels is one of the top ten hotel chains in Spain. The hotels in which
Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution were installed, including the H10 Conquistador, H10
Gran Tinerfe, H10 Tenerife Playa, Sentido Playa Esmeralda, H10 Rubicón Palace
and others, are large beach front properties located in various vacation
destinations, ranging from 300 to 500 rooms each, in different configurations
of single or multiple buildings. The hotels feature large public areas such as
multiple swimming pools, fitness facilities, restaurants and bars, conference
rooms, night clubs and other facilities.

"Alvarion is delighted that WifiSafe chose to work with us on this project,"
said Zeev Farkash, Executive Vice President of Sales, Alvarion. "These
deployments demonstrate again that our distinctive Wi-Fi technology enables
our partners to offer their customers an easy-to-deploy and cost-effective
solution, addressing the need to deliver high-performance indoor and outdoor
connectivity."

Following these network deployments H10 Hotels made the following statement:
"People today want to stay connected to their families, friends and work using
their mobile devices. Providing Wi-Fi is part of the exceptional service we
offer our guests.The Alvarion solution delivers high-speed connectivity both
indoor and outdoor with minimal dead spots even in the largest properties.
Installing outdoor equipment was non-disruptive to our guests and hotel staff
during the set-up process; and more importantly, the outdoor equipment
minimizes any aesthetic and physical intrusions caused by the equipment to the
hotels."

Alvarion's Wi-Fi offering includes advanced carrier-grade, wireless broadband
base stations operating in the 2.4 and 5 GHz unlicensed bands using spatially
adaptive Beamforming technology and powerful interference mitigation
algorithms to provide optimal connectivity, extended range, increased
capacity, indoor penetration and uniform coverage. With this technology, fewer
access points can be deployed, significantly reducing installation costs and
cabling resulting in lower CAPEX and OPEX as well as minimizing the aesthetic
impact.

WifiSafe has been an Alvarion (and Wavion) partner in Spain since 2011.Using
Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution WifiSafe has installed dozens of high
performance Wi-Fi networks, offering customers voice, data and video services,
in a variety of vertical markets including hospitality, industrial parks,
municipalities and other government agencies.
