TigoBusiness Nicaragua Selects Alvarion's Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Solution as Its
Platform for Wi-Fi Networks

Alvarion's Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Provides a Robust and Cost-Effective Solution
to Deliver Connectivity Supporting Various Applications

TEL AVIV, Israel, May 21, 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 TigoBusiness Nicaragua has
chosen the company's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution as its platform for Wi-Fi
networks. To date, TigoBusiness has deployed several Wi-Fi networks using the
Alvarion solution to deliver a range of services throughout the country.

"We searched for a solution that would allow us to cost-effectively connect a
large number of users with a minimal number of access points. We tested a
number of different vendors before we chose to use Alvarion as the platform
for our Wi-Fi network solution," said Nestor Martinez, Business Unit Manager,
TigoBusiness Nicaragua. "Alvarion's solution proved to be robust and provided
the necessary performance in terms of speed, coverage and security as well as
the QoS to support video and other applications. In addition, the solution is
cost effective and scalable as we expect the networks we deploy to rapidly
grow." 

To complement its fixed network and other services, TigoBusiness Nicaragua is
using Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi base stations to offer customers an
end-to-end Wi-Fi solution. TigoBusiness is targeting various sectors,
including –

  * Universities and schools: cross campus Wi-Fi, facilitating new e-learning
    programs, video streaming and content sharing, fostering better teaching
    and learning experience for students and staff.
  * Retail stores: enabling a new shopping experience, efficient store
    management and video security over Wi-Fi. 
  * Enterprise and government: managed Wi-Fi networks, supporting secured
    access for employees and visitors with Bring-Your-Own-Device (BYOD)
    hand-held devices, improving collaboration and efficiency, and
    facilitating Cloud services (provided by TigoBusiness as well).
  * Logistical and distribution centers: utilizing the Wi-Fi network to enable
    the use of warehousing applications for more efficient inventory control
    and management.
  * Industry: utilizing the Wi-Fi network to manage industrial processing
    controls across the manufacturing line in the food industry (including,
    peanuts, sugar and beer).
  * Metro Hot Zones: public Wi-Fi access in crowded locations to serve
    residents, local businesses and tourists, promoting economic development.

"We are thrilled to have such a prominent and highly-regarded service provider
as our partner. We won TigoBusiness as a customer after a testing and
selection process in which we demonstrated the many benefits of our
carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution vs. competition. With TigoBusiness as a partner
we have a solid foundation to expand our presence in Nicaragua," said Zeev
Farkash, EVP of Sales at Alvarion. "The prevalence of Wi-Fi is growing
worldwide, with demand for both private, enterprise-own, networks as well as
networks providing public access. We believe we have the right technology to
be successful and continue winning customers such as TigoBusiness."

Among TigoBusiness' Wi-Fi customers to date are Universidad Americana, a
private university with a student body of approximately 3,000, dedicated to
the development and improvement of higher education in Nicaragua and committed
to international diversity through the Go Global program and which prides
itself with being equipped with the most modern technology; the Pierre & Marie
Curie School, a private trilingual school with more than 500 students
enrolled, best known for its large multicultural student body and arts
specialty (home to the first Latin American school observatory where the
asteroid 2012 FE52 was discovered); SINSA Hardware Stores, the largest chain
of hardware and "do it yourself" stores in the country; and the Instituto
Nicaraguense de Turismo, a government agency responsible for promotion and
