Nortel, Alvarion to provide long range wireless access

Nortel Networks agreed to team up with the Israeli technology provider Alvarion to deliver long-range wireless access to customers, an Associated Press report said.

The financial terms of the arrangement were not disclosed, the report said.

The collaboration will involve the Tel Aviv-based company's radio access network capabilities and Nortel's network gear and services.

Nortel said it is focusing its main wireless research-and-development resources on a fourth-generation broadband technology called LTE and wireless applications, leaving WiMAX development to Alvarion.

Nortel said it will contribute resources, expertise and funding to Alvarion's WiMax development.

The agreement covers resale by Nortel of Alvarion WiMAX access products.
