Vacationers Take Home Memories From Leading Cancun Mexico Theme Parks With Alvarion Wi-Fi Technology



Vacationers Take Home Memories From Leading Cancun Mexico Theme Parks With
Alvarion Wi-Fi Technology

Carrier-Grade Wi-Fi Network Helps Deliver a Superior Customer Experience and
Operational Efficiencies in Challenging Non-Line-of-Sight and High
Interference Conditions

TEL AVIV, Israel, June 4, 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 Experiencias Xcaret, the
management company of three Cancún-based theme parks – Xcaret Park, Xel-Há
Park, and Park Xplor – deployed its carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution to support
various wireless services at the parks.

"The Wi-Fi network we required posed many challenges to the solution provider
– the need for high capacity given the high volume of visitors and large
outdoor areas, challenging Non-Line-of-Sight conditions and the dense forest
in the parks which absorb the signal," said Juan Jose Luis Cisneros Lopez,
CIO, Experiencias Xcaret. "We tested solutions from various vendors and only
Alvarion's carrier-grade Wi-Fi solution met our needs. The network allows us
to deliver a superior customer experience, while at the same time enables us
to run a more efficient operation."

The Alvarion solution delivers high-capacity and reliable Wi-Fi service, which
supports connectivity for up to 3,000 visitors daily to the parks as well as
the park's internal use. For example, Experiencias Xcaret installed
high-definition digital cameras to take photographs of vacationers, especially
on rides and adventures where visitors cannot use their own cameras. The
high-resolution photographs (18MB), which are automatically transmitted to a
central database can be purchased in special kiosks located throughout the
parks. Additionally, the network supports internal applications used for the
park's operation, such as point of sale terminals at restaurants and CRM
platforms that can be accessed from the staff's mobile devices.

"Alvarion is excited to work with Experiencias Xcaret on this unique project.
Carrier-grade Wi-Fi is an ideal fit for any organization that needs to
efficiently and cost-effectively deploy a network without expensive digging or
disruptions of wires and cables to support a wide range of services and
applications, both public and private," said Zeev Farkash, Executive Vice
President of Sales, Alvarion. "Once again Alvarion's distinctive Wi-Fi
technology enables our customers to deliver high-performance connectivity
enhancing their business operations."

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. 

Experiencias Xcaret also intends to deploy Alvarion's Wi-Fi solution at its
new, 1 million square meter (247 acres) theme park, XENOTES, that will feature
walking and biking paths built around five cenotes in a jungle-like scenery.
