Proxim Wireless Delivers Wi-Fi® Connectivity to Resorts in Vermont and Florida

Network Provides 100% Wireless Coverage to Fall Line Condominiums in Killington, Vermont and Beachers Lodge in Florida

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - June 5, 2007) - Proxim Wireless Corporation, a global pioneer of end-to-end solutions in Wi-Fi® mesh, WiMAX, MeshMAX™, WLAN, and wireless backhaul and wholly owned subsidiary of Terabeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRBM), today announced the deployment of Proxim's ORiNOCO® AP4000MR-LR ruggedized wireless access points to provide Wi-Fi® connectivity to a condominium complex at ski resort Killington in Vermont and across Beachers Lodge in Florida.

Fall Line Condominiums, a development of contemporary condominium units located in Killington, Vermont and Beachers Lodge in Florida deployed Proxim's high capacity, ruggedized ORiNOCO Wi-Fi outdoor mesh access points as these withstand severe weather conditions and harsh outdoor environments.

Consulting Beachers Lodge and Fall Line Condominiums with the design and deployment of their new wireless networks is Single Digits, a Proxim Wireless Platinum partner and turnkey provider of business-class Wi-Fi access solutions. In addition to designing and installing the networks, Single Digits will also provide a managed service for all authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) functions, as well as 24x7x365 live consumer technical support for end users at both locations.

Both resorts are looking to offer guests the best in amenities including reliable, high-performance Wi-Fi access. "We want unit owners and guests to be able to access the Internet without interruption," said Bob Stein, President of the Home Owner's Association for Fall Line Condominiums. Shannon Lake, General Manager, Beachers Lodge added: "We turned to Proxim Wireless because its products and technology are field-proven and offer us network performance and dependability beyond expectations. We are pleased to have Proxim Wireless and Single Digits as our partners in this effort."

More About the Proxim Wireless Outdoor Mesh Product Family

The ORiNOCO AP-4000MR-LR family of ruggedized, dual-radio wireless mesh access points are based on the ORiNOCO enterprise-class Wi-Fi platform for metropolitan scale deployments. The dual-radio configuration of the AP4000 allows one radio to provide Wi-Fi (802.11b/g) end user access, while the other radio -- in the same compact product enclosure -- provides mesh backhaul using a pre-802.11s protocol. By using two radios operating at different frequencies, system capacity is doubled and interference is significantly reduced.

The ORiNOCO Mesh Creation Protocol (OMCP) was added to Proxim's ORiNOCO enterprise-class Wi-Fi access points to allow the creation of self-forming and self-healing non-line of sight (NLOS) mesh networks. Furthermore, the mesh protocol secures links using AES encryption, supports both fixed mesh (all APs mounted statically) or mobile mesh (in-vehicle versions of the mesh AP interacting with APs mounted statically) configurations, and VLAN information is kept intact over mesh links to enable virtual networking. Another advantage is quality of service (QoS) enabling converged but differentiated carriage of voice, video, and data traffic.
