State of Jalisco deploys Alvarion BreezeMAX for first educational network in Mexico

Alvarion, a
provider of 4G networks in the Broadband Wireless Access market, announced that
the Mexican State of Jalisco has deployed the eJalisco WiMAX Network
implemented with Alvarion equipment in the licensed 3.3 GHz frequency to
introduce the nation’s largest educational network.

The eJalisco network will enable Jalisco to provide Internet connectivity for
thousands of previously unconnected students, libraries, colleges and
government offices.

Initiated by
the State Government, the statewide connectivity eJalisco wireless broadband
network requires extreme reliability and coverage for sub-urban and rural
connectivity, as well as an optimal cost-performance ratio.

government budget was allocated based upon specific technological requirements
that Alvarion’s BreezeMAX solution was able to meet. Alvarion’s BreezeMAX, coupled with meticulous eJalisco WiMAX Network planning and carried
out together with its local partner Hemac have enabled an optimal solution with
a smooth migration plan for its future.

flexibility to deliver a phase 1 solution that meets with our needs today, but
also foresees its future was a crucial factor in selecting our vendor for this
project,” said Victor Manuel Gonzalez Romero, secretary of Planning of the
Government and coordinator of the project eJalisco WiMAX Network of the Jalisco

The recently
launched eJalisco network is the first stage of the Jalisco project that
involves the basic foundations of the network to connect all state schools,
libraries, hospitals and government offices to the Internet and makes many
online government services widely accessible.

During the
next phase of the Jalisco project, local government plans to introduce
applications to leverage this infrastructure such as online e-education for
distance learning that will help to improve the quality of life for many of
Jalisco’s residents.

wireless broadband solutions are ideal for educational networks as they are
inherently able to meet the governing institution’s needs for reliable
connectivity and operational efficiency, while also meeting students’ demands
for innovative technologies and applications,” said Hector Mario Chavira, CEO
of Hemac.

With an
education system that annually graduates more than 5 thousand engineers in
different disciplines, the ability to scale to accommodate the growing number
of mobile users, sophisticated network-connected devices, and network traffic
has also become a priority.

government initiatives become increasingly focused on Digital Inclusion, we are
seeing more and more institutions turning to wireless broadband to maximize the
value of their funds with cost-effective solutions that are both contemporary
and field-proven,” said Eran Gorev, president and CEO of Alvarion.
