BreezeMAX(TM) is Alvarion's award winning, WiMAX platform that has been designed from the ground up according to the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, New York, www.ieee.org) A membership organization that includes engineers, scientists and students in electronics and allied fields. 802.16 standards using OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) A digital transmission technique that uses a large number of carriers spaced apart at slightly different frequencies. technology for advanced non-line-of-sight (NLOS NLOS Non-Line of Sight
NLOS No Line of Sight (satellite TV)
NLOS Near Line of Sight ) functionality. Its carrier-class design supports broadband speeds and quality of service (QoS) to enable carriers to offer triple play broadband services to thousands of subscribers from a single base station. Since its launch in mid-2004, BreezeMAX has been successfully deployed in over 150 installations in more than 30 countries around the world.
