Altitude Infrastructure Extends Partnership With Proxim Wireless for High Capacity Wireless Deployments

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 15, 2012) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (PINKSHEETS: PRXM), a leading provider of complete outdoor wireless backhaul systems, today announced the extension of its partnership with Altitude Infrastructure, a leader in the regional digital development throughout France.

Altitude Infrastructure has been a main contributor in the French telecom market over the last 10 years helping regional authorities to explore, develop and construct telecom networks. They currently provide the network infrastructure in 19 regions throughout France which includes the largest deployment of WiMAX technology to date. This position has been achieved due to the company's "savoir faire" in deploying both wireless and fiber technologies.

Proxim Wireless was initially chosen by Altitude Infrastructure in 2007 for the deployment of Proxim's Point-to-Point Tsunami® QB11 product range. More recently, the increasing demand for additional bandwidth led to the migration from the Tsunami QB11 to the Tsunami QB8150 for existing and future wireless deployments. The Tsunami QB8150 product range uses the latest wireless technology by providing secure high-capacity wireless transmission coupled with OFDM and MiMO functionality often required by telecom operators. The product range is perfectly adapted for the outdoor environment (IP67), and the radios can be deployed and configured rapidly resulting in substantial cost savings compared to other technologies.

"Altitude Infrastructure works with France's regional authorities to explore alternative network solutions while avoiding a new digital divide and maintaining a policy of fair and equitable development," said Fabrice Ballart, Vice President of Altitude Infrastructure. "Proxim's equipment allows us to achieve an optimal infrastructure for both urban as well as rural areas."

"We are delighted about the extension of our alliance with Altitude Infrastructure for the deployment of their high capacity networks in France. Their technical requirements are of an extremely high standard and we are pleased that they have selected, once again, a Proxim solution due to the capacity, ease of deployment and functionality offered by the Tsunami QB8150 product range," said Simon Snowdon, Director Commercial of Proxim in France.
