SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - July 12, 2007) - Proxim Wireless Corporation, a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband municipal wireless networks and wholly owned subsidiary of Terabeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRBM), today announced the Tsunami MP.11 Model 954-R, an outdoor point-to-multipoint base station and subscriber unit system that supports high-speed wireless connections in the 900 MHz license-exempt frequency band. Designed for non-line-of-sight applications, the new system enables reliable communications links in environments filled with buildings, dense foliage and other obstructions.

"With Proxim's new Tsunami MP.11 Model 954-R, we can create reliable, high-speed wireless links in environments where line-of-sight is simply not possible," said Gregg Rowland, Senior Vice President Sales and Marketing at ShotSpotter, Inc. "ShotSpotter's wireless Gunshot Location System is a mission critical tool for public safety and the military, so reliable communications to and from our sensors is essential to dispatch or the command and control systems."

An addition to Proxim's award-winning Tsunami MP.11 family, the Model 954-R system provides capabilities of WiMAX, including WiMAX QoS, mobile roaming with fast handoff speeds up to 200 km/per hour (120 mph), dynamic data rate selection (DDRS) and advanced security with AES encryption. The system's design enables flexible and easy deployment. Housed in ruggedized enclosures, the base station and subscriber units can be deployed in extreme weather conditions with a variety of external antennas. An antenna alignment tool and secure local and remote management ensure quick installation and maintenance.

"With the introduction of these products, Proxim Wireless is expanding our point-to-multipoint product line to support an even wider range of applications," said Bert Williams, Vice President of Marketing at Proxim Wireless. "Our Tsunami product line with ProximVision™ management now operates in the 900 MHz, 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz license-exempt frequency bands, as well as the 3.5 GHz and 4.9 GHz licensed bands, so that our customers can choose the spectrum that best supports their particular applications and environment."
