The BreezeMAX Wi2 from Alvarion : Optimal Solution for Personal Broadband Services

Posted on 04 March 2009 by Quantum Wimax

Alvarion-BreezeMAX-wi2BreezeMAX Wi2 from Alvarion combines the advantages of the popular WiFi access with the powerful capabilities of BreezeMAX systems to provide cost-effective solutions for personal broadband services, bridging the gap to full future WiMAX 802.16e personal broadband mobility.

The Alvarion Wi2 system comprises a combination of a WiFi Access Point and a BreezeMAX unit that provides backhaul connectivity. The Wi2 can be deployed most anywhere to provide broadband mobility to standard IEEE 802.11 b/g end user devices.  Used in conjunction with the BreezeMAX base stations, the Wi2 can be used to expand the existing capabilities of  WiMAX and pre-WiMAX networks.

BreezeMAX network using the Wi2 can be used to provide personal broadband services to high-end business, residential users equipped with WiFi enabled devices such as laptops, PDAs, smart-phones, and portable gaming devices.

Operating in both licensed and non-licensed frequencies, the Wi2 system leverages the availability of WiFi technology - along with the BreezeMAX Broadband broadband wireless access system - to answer critical public and private sector needs such as traffic management, video surveillance, public Internet access, homeland security, and various nomadic applications.

The BreezeMAX Wi2 is an all-outdoor system that comprises 3 elements :

  1. A feature-rich WiFi Access Point (IEEE 802.11 b/g)
  2. A BreezeMAX SU-ODU (supplied separately)
  3. A power supply module that provides power to both the WiFi AP and the BreezeMAX SU-ODU.


The Wi2 system from Alvarion requires only a single connection to either AC or DC power and is an ideal solution for operators, municipalities and communities looking to build metropolitan broadband networks or to integrate WiFi hot zone capabilities into their existing broadband wireless access networks.

Key benefits and advantages for the Alvarion BreezeMAX WI2
