Proxim Wireless Extends QuickBridge Product Line With New QuickBridge 60250

Hop-in-a-Box Provides 200 Mbps of Capacity in the 60 GHz Unlicensed Spectrum

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - November 28, 2007) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXM), a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband municipal wireless networks, today announced the QuickBridge 60250, a point-to-point wireless hop-in-a-box that provides 200 Mbps of capacity in the 60 GHz unlicensed spectrum. The QuickBridge 60250's small form factor, alignment bracket and alignment scope make it easy to deploy and install. As a result, the QuickBridge 60250 is well suited to not only network operator, enterprise and municipal applications but also for rapid construction of temporary networks for special events and when responding to disasters.

The QuickBridge 60250 is a complete hop-in-a-box containing all of the components, including radio units, mounting hardware, power injectors and cables, required to deploy a reliable wireless connection operating over distances of up to 500 meters. Its low power consumption enables use of alternate power sources, such as solar power. The QuickBridge 60250 offers very low latency, making it ideal for voice and video applications.

Proxim's QuickBridge 60250 offers flexible management and easy administration. Network managers can monitor the link's status and traffic using a Web user interface or by integrating it into a network management tool via SNMP.

"Installing a 500 meter, 100 Mbps fiber link is an expensive, time-consuming proposition," said Bert Williams, Vice President of Marketing for Proxim Wireless. "With the QuickBridge 60250, a highly reliable 500 meter, 200 Mbps wireless link can be installed cost-effectively in a matter of hours."

Proxim's QuickBridge product line is just one part of the company's high-capacity wireless point-to-point product offering. Proxim point-to-point products provide reliable, secure and easily deployed solutions for interconnecting corporate and carrier networks. Proxim's Tsunami family of point-to-point wireless Ethernet bridges provide transparent, carrier-class connectivity with performance options ranging from 11 to 216 Mbps. Lynx point-to-point products are fast and economical solutions for extending telecommunications infrastructures, delivering capacities from fractional T1 to OC-3. Providing the performance of fiber at a fraction of the cost, the GigaLink® Series of millimeter wave products deliver up to Gigabit Ethernet speeds at 60 GHz and 74 GHz.

Proxim's QuickBridge 60250 is available now at a list price of $12,999. This price includes all components required to deploy a link, including radio units, mounting hardware, power injectors, and documentation.
