Alvarion Ltd., the provider of wireless broadband solutions worldwide, recently announced that its solutions have been selected by China Telecom Corporation for deployment in four provinces.
China Telecom was awarded licenses to operate 3.5 GHz BWA networks in the second round of China's frequency licensing process.
After intensive evaluation, China Telecom decided on four recommended vendors, two of which are Alvarion's OEM partners in China, BISC and Datang Telecom. To date, four of China Telecom's northern provinces have placed initial orders for Alvarion solutions: Liaoning, Shandong, Inner Mongolia and Heilongjiang. Most of the orders were for Alvarion's WALKair 1000 Multiservice Telecom Platform. Alvarion has now achieved successful initial commercial deliveries with all four of China's major telecom service providers of fixed and cellular lines: China Telecom, China Netcom, China Mobile and China Unicom.
