SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - Mar 12, 2013) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (PINKSHEETS: PRXM), a leading provider of complete outdoor wireless backhaul systems utilizing WORP® technology, has been awarded the 2013 Government Security News (GSN) Platinum Award for "Best Mobile Wireless Broadband Video Surveillance Solution" for its Tsunami™ MP.11 HS 4454 broadband product. The 2013 GSN awards were formally announced at the Border Security Expo occurring March 12-13, 2013 in Phoenix, Arizona.
The MP.11 HS 4454 product has the features to deliver real-world performance for a variety of real-world applications. In particular, the flexibility and features of the product allow it to excel when delivering HD video security and surveillance coverage. As just one example, the MP.11 HS 4454 product can be configured to deliver real-time video from an unmanned vehicle in the air to people on the ground driving in their vehicle. A pictorial demonstration of the uninterrupted video coverage that can be enjoyed by ground personnel (even while moving between base stations) is being included on Proxim's website.
In addition to border patrol and security, the MP.11 HS 4454 product can be used to provide ultra-secure, cost-effective, high-performance connectivity in a wide variety of other public safety applications, such as secure communication networks, perimeter security, transportation system monitoring and telemetry, and remote monitoring of city streets, airports, bridges, seaports, transportation hubs, offices, warehouses, and other areas.
Proxim's MP.11 HS 4454 product benefits from Proxim's 20+ years of experience in developing wireless broadband equipment and the technological performance and differentiation enabled by Proxim's proprietary Wireless Outdoor Routing Protocol (WORP®) software.

- Enabling mobility ensuring uninterrupted connectivity for a subscriber unit moving at up to 120 miles per hour and even roaming from one base station to another
- Being certified as FIPS 140-2 level 2 compliant providing ultra-secure connectivity
All of these differentiating features and flexibilities were specifically designed by Proxim to meet the real-world needs and desires of its customers in this market.
