KPN HotSpots Deploys Proxim's New Compact, Robust, and High-Performance Tsunami® 820 Series Products

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2015) -  Proxim Wireless Corporation (OTC PINK: PRXM), a pioneer and global leader in advanced Wi-Fi, point to point (PtP) and point to multipoint (PtMP) radio systems, today announced the expansion of its relationship with KPN Hotspots, The Netherlands' largest provider of Wi-Fi hotspots.

KPN HotSpots has been extensively deploying Proxim ORiNOCO® access points for the last eight years in dozens of hotspot locations including:

  • Hotel chains -- including Van Der Valk, Holland's largest hotel chain
  • Restaurants and cafes -- including the Campanile, La Place and AC Restaurants
  • Gas stations -- gas stations throughout the Netherlands offering customers the ability to connect and check email/Internet
  • Railways and public transportation -- including NS railway stations
  • Holiday Parks -- including Centreparcs in the Benelux, France and Germany

KPN HotSpots has been evaluating different technologies to improve their backbone infrastructure in various locations, and Proxim's Tsunami® 820 series of subscriber units turned out to be the right solution. The Tsunami 820 point to multipoint products are full-featured but cost-efficient subscriber units that connect to Proxim's standard base station equipment. These products use the latest wireless technology providing secure high-capacity wireless transmission coupled with the OFDM and MiMO functionality often required by telecom operators. The products are ideally suited for the outdoor environment (including an IP67 rating) with their compact robust hardware and can be deployed and configured rapidly resulting in substantial cost savings compared to other technologies.

"We have been using Proxim's ORiNOCO Wi-Fi access points for many years as our goal has always been to provide our customers with the greatest Wi-Fi connectivity and this requires the support of solid technology partners," said Robert Kools, Manager Operations of KPN HotSpots. "As we continue to expand our network to new locations, we have been delighted to expand our relationship with Proxim with the deployment of their Tsunami 820 products."
