Shares of Alvarion Ltd. (Nasdaq: ALVR) were up nearly 10 percent today after the Israeli provider of wireless broadband technology and services announced it was chosen to deploy a nationwide mobile wireless data network in Italy.

“This contract confirms Alvarion’s Mobile WiMAX solution as the most advanced solution in the market, and our leading position as a long-term partner for WiMAX,” said Alvarion’s CEO, Tzvika Friedman.

Given Italy`s 58 million highly-dense population, WiMAX is the most economical and high-performance technology to deliver 4G broadband to businesses and residential subscribers in a wide geographic area, according to Reuters. Alvarion`s 4Motion is an advanced and field-proven solution for delivering innovative WiMAX services for a range of broadband applications in rural, suburban and urban environments.

Lawrence M. Harris, an analyst with CL King & Associates, said in a note to investors the value of the deal is more than $20 million over the next two to three years. “The Aria announcement does not change our near-term forecast for Alvarion, but adds to our confidence in the company’s outlook,” wrote the analyst, who rates Alvarion “accumulate” with a target price of $5.

On June 17, the company said it signed a deal worth more than $100 million over five years with U.S. rural broadband wireless operator Open Range Communications Inc.
