Alvarion has successfully executed the extension of its wireless broadband platform and come out with BreezeACCESS 4900. It will use the 4.9GHz frequency band, licensed for the U.S. public safety market. A formal announcement was made by the company on Tuesday.
The BreezeACCESS 4900 promises providing support to applications like remote video surveillance, traffic flow management, back-up for disaster recovery, and leased line replacements.
The company is projecting its new device as a major boost to the segment of public safety broadband applications – a view that is also being endorsed by representatives of leading public safety agencies. “Finally, governmental agencies can leverage state-of-the-art broadband technology in support of public safety broadband applications nationwide.” Stephen Devine of National Association of Regional Planning Committees (NARPC) said.
Based on OFDM technology, BreezeACCESS 4900 offers high-capacity, non-line-of-sight connections. It further promises to deliver a comprehensive solution for public safety agencies, including broadband connectivity in vehicles when combined with Alvarion’s BreezeACCESS 900 system. It has also been certified by FIPS-197 and embodies federally approved AES encryption.
BreezeACCESS 4900 will be available for commercial use from the fourth quarter of this year.
