Proxim's Ultra-Secure Tsunami™ MP.11 HS Wins Network Products Guide Reader Trust Award as Best Security Solution for Government

Tsunami MP.11 HS Selected as a 2008 Best Products and Services Winner

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - August 5, 2008) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXM), a leading provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, today announced that Network Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and a leading publication on technologies and solutions, has named Proxim's Tsunami™ MP.11 HS (High Security) products the winner of the 2008 Best Products and Services Award for Best Security Solution for Government. This respected annual award honors products and services that best satisfy the rapidly changing needs and interests of the end-users of technology worldwide. As part of the tech-industry's leading global awards program, this year's Best Products and Services were nominated from all over the world.

What is Ultra-Secure Broadband Wireless?

The Tsunami MP.11 HS product family is Proxim's ultra-secure broadband wireless solution for wireless voice, video, data connectivity, and mobility, combining FIPS 140-2 level 2 compliance, advanced AES-256 encryption, and secure management to meet strict U.S. Federal Government standards. Whereas competitors' approaches to high security wireless broadband require multiple products to be bolted together to achieve FIPS 140-2 compliance and AES-256 encryption, Proxim is a truly integrated solution that offers these security features -- as well as secure management -- in one box. By combining this high security with the high throughput required for bandwidth-intensive video, the Tsunami MP.11 HS solution is ideally suited for use in security video surveillance in ports, cities, and along transportation infrastructures.
