Alvarion to Move North American HQ to Washington, DC Metro

Here is another company moving to DC metro. This one is right up my alley, a wireless company.

Alvarion, an Israel-based developer of wireless broadband technology will move its North American headquarters from Silicon Valley to Montgomery County as soon as early next year.

The company has yet to settle on a specific location, but expects to create 25 local jobs by 2013. It will receive $95,000 in loans from the State of Maryland and Montgomery County to assist with the relocation. The Maryland/Israel Development Center (MIDC), a public-private partnership that promotes trade and investment in Maryland and Israel, played a key role in attracting the company. “Alvarion is considered one of Israel’s high tech success stories,” said Barry Bogage, executive director of the MIDC. “Relocating their North American headquarters to Maryland is a strong statement to the Israeli high tech community.” Alvarion’s broadband wireless (WiMax) access technologies are used by more than 2 million customers of carriers, ISPs and private network operators in 130 countries.

Other good News is, they are hiring. So, if you are in wireless broadband space and looking for job, send resumes to hr [at] yellowbrix [dot] com

  1. This is a good move for the company. While LTE is becoming dominant in the global market, WiMAX has the potential for long-term success in niches, including military commercial off the shelf (COTS) technology and M2M. Being in DC helps with the former, especially.
