Proxim Launches Wireless Point-to-Multipoint Systems

SAN JOSE, CA /Marketwire/ -- Proxim Wireless Corp., a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband municipal wireless networks and a wholly owned subsidiary of Terabeam Inc., announced the Tsunami MP.11 Model 954-R, an outdoor point-to-multipoint base station and subscriber-unit system that supports high-speed wireless connections in the 900 MHz license-exempt frequency band. Designed for non-line-of-sight applications, the new system enables reliable communications links in environments filled with buildings, dense foliage, and other obstructions.

"With Proxim's new Tsunami MP.11 Model 954-R, we can create reliable, high-speed wireless links in environments where line-of-sight is simply not possible," said Gregg Rowland, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing at ShotSpotter Inc. "ShotSpotter's wireless Gunshot Location System is a mission-critical tool for public safety and the military, so reliable communications to and from our sensors is essential to dispatch or the command and control systems."

An addition to Proxim's award-winning Tsunami MP.11 family, the Model 954-R system provides WiMAX capabilities, including WiMAX QoS, mobile roaming with fast handoff speeds of up to 200 km/hour (120 mph), dynamic data rate selection, and advanced security with AES encryption. The system's design enables flexible and easy deployment. Housed in rugged enclosures, the base station and subscriber units can be deployed in extreme weather conditions, with a variety of external antennas. An antenna alignment tool and secure local and remote management ensure quick installation and maintenance.

"With the introduction of these products, Proxim Wireless is expanding our point-to-multipoint product line to support an even wider range of applications," said Bert Williams, Vice President of Marketing at Proxim Wireless. "Our Tsunami product line with ProximVision management now operates in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz, and 5 GHz license-exempt frequency bands, as well as the 3.5 GHz and 4.9 GHz licensed bands, so our customers can choose the spectrum that best supports their particular applications and environment."

The Tsunami MP.11 954-R base station is available now at a U.S. list price of $2299; Tsunami MP.11 954-R subscriber units are also available now with U.S. list prices starting at $1199.
