U.S. market for over-the-counter securities. Established in 1971 by the National Association of Securities Dealers (NASD), NASDAQ is an automated quotation system that reports on : ALVR), the world's leading provider of wireless broadband High-speed wireless transmission of data. What is "high" speed is always a changing number. Wireless systems are typically slower than land-based, wireline networks. In the past, wireless broadband started at 250 Kbps, whereas land-based broadband was generally considered to start at T1 solutions and specialized mobile networks, today announced that six Chicago area communities have deployed a regional mobile broadband Description
Mobile Broadband is a type of wireless internet access that differs from Wi-Fi.
Mobile Broadband is the name used to describe the 3G services which are made possible by HSDPA and HSUPA, the latest technologies on the W-CDMA evolutionary path. network using its BreezeACCESS 900 system to support fixed and mobile public safety applications, specifically to help crime and fire fighting fire fighting, the use of strategy, personnel, and apparatus to extinguish, to confine, or to escape from fire. Fire-Fighting Strategy
Fire fighting strategy involves the following basic procedures: arriving at the scene of the fire as rapidly as efforts. Using only fourteen base stations to cover the entire area, along with the associated mobile terminals installed in the public safety vehicles, the network was designed and deployed by Alvarion partner PCS (1) (Personal Communications Services) Refers to wireless services that emerged after the U.S. government auctioned commercial licenses in 1994 and 1995. This radio spectrum in the 1. Technologies in the Chicago area including the cities of Hodgkins, North Riverside, Riverside, Lyons, Countryside, McCook, and the Pleasantview Fire District.
"This deployment is an ideal prototype of suburban communities addressing their common public safety interests with a regional broadband network," commented John Feldman, vice president and general manager of PCS Technologies. "The BreezeACCESS 900 leverages Alvarion's deep understanding of the mobile public safety market going back to 2000 enabling coverage of the entire region for a fraction of the cost of comparable mesh solutions. Sharing infrastructure and access to some common servers and databases generates many economies for the communities, while giving each city the ability to tailor the specific information available to their public safety officials and access to unique servers city-by-city."
Connecting approximately 50 police cars and 15 fire vehicles, the network is used for dispatch functions, while enabling mobile access to central databases such as the Department of Motor Vehicle (DMV DMV
Department of Motor Vehicles ) records. Also providing remote access to several video surveillance cameras to monitor and protect public structures, such as the local water treatment plant and city government buildings, network deployment began last year and has grown incrementally to include additional local jurisdictions.
"Being adjacent to Chicago has its advantages, but it also means we need big city policing on a small city budget," noted Mark Wilkans, lieutenant of the Hodgkins Police Department and chair of the technical subcommittee of the Area-wide Law Enforcement Radio Terminal System (ALERTS) users group, a statewide body focused on officer use of mobile technologies. "The total price of a new system is as important as its effectiveness and with Alvarion, the mobile broadband network has proven to be equally effective in crime fighting Crime Fighting

A cost-effective alternative to a mesh network A communications network in which there are at least two pathways to each node. If one of the paths fails, the other is still available.
A "fully meshed" network means that every node has a direct connection to every other node, which is a very elaborate and expensive architecture. requiring less than one-tenth the infrastructure, BreezeACCESS 900 offers secure, robust and reliable mobile access covering both metro and rural areas and implements advanced features for high-performance seamless roaming, even at freeway speeds. With the ability to integrate Wi-Fi access into the vehicle-mounted subscriber unit A Subscriber Unit, or SU is a broadband radio that is installed at a business or residential location to connect to an Access Point to send/receive high speed data wired or wirelessly. Devices commonly referred to as a Subscriber Unit include cable modems, mobile phones, etc. , BreezeACCESS 900 permits departments to leverage the low cost and mass market availability of Wi-Fi enabled devices within a 300 foot zone around each vehicle. BreezeACCESS 900 also integrates seamlessly with other BreezeACCESS systems, including BreezeACCESS 4900, enabling carrier-class, FIPS (Federal Information Processing Standards) A series of publications issed by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that specifies information security guidelines for federal government departments and agencies. 197 secure, licensed backhaul of BreezeACCESS 900 cells.
