Telecom Lead Brazil: Alvarion has deployed its wireless broadband solutions in 300 municipalities across 24 different states in Brazil.
The Smart Cities project is assisting in offering applications include indoor and outdoor Internet access, classroom connectivity and e-learning, intelligent traffic and transportation control, video surveillance for public safety, online services for citizens and voice, video and data connectivity for government offices, hospitals and other service providers.
Alvarion’s solutions in the 2.4 GHz, 4.9 GHz, 5.4 GHz and 5.8 GHz frequencies, enable a single unified wireless broadband network that supports a wide range of applications.
For instance, Feira De Santana, a town in Brazil, is using Alvarion’s solutions to advance educational services by connecting over 240 schools to the Internet, linking over 32,000 computers daily, and allowing children and their parents to connect to classroom materials from home. The city deployed a secured private network to connect its public healthcare clinics, enabling medical records and patient information exchange between clinics.
“Over the past three years, Alvarion’s network has made it possible for us to deliver a variety of services ranging from city-wide public Internet access, video surveillance for public safety, e-learning and connectivity for municipal buildings, schools and healthcare clinics,” said Tarcizio Pimenta Junior, mayor of Feira De Santana City in Bahia State, Brazil.
“Our wireless broadband solutions are designed to deliver multiple applications, on the same network, with the highest standards of security and quality of service, allowing municipalities to build these wireless networks in an efficient and cost effective way,” said Hezi Lapid, president and CEO of Alvarion.
“Our 300 deployments underscores the extent of our expertise and demonstrates our success in helping municipalities effectively use their resources to deliver more and better services to their citizens,” said Ricardo Pence, director of Sales, Alvarion Latin America.
