Proxim's QuickBridge 60250 Named Winner in the Millimeter Wave Radio Category

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXM), a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband wireless networks, today announced that Network Products Guide, a Silicon Valley Communications publication and a leading publication on technologies and solutions, has named the Proxim QuickBridge 60250 point-to-point wireless bridge a winner of the 2008 Product Innovation Award. This annual award recognizes and honors vendors from all over the world with innovative and ground-breaking products that are bringing essential and incremental changes and are setting the bar higher for others in all areas of information technology.

Proxim's QuickBridge 60250 is a point-to-point wireless hop-in-a-box that provides 250 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. The QuickBridge 60250 is therefore 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. 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.
