Proxim Wireless Announces Enterprise-Class 802.11ac Wi-Fi Adapter

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwired - Mar 30, 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 launch of the ORiNOCO® USB-9100 Wi-Fi Adapter with dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n/ac support, enabling users to experience next-generation, ultrafast Wi-Fi access.

Based on the latest IEEE ratified standard - 802.11ac, the ORiNOCO USB-9100 wireless adapter allows high speed Wi-Fi access from 11ac access points and routers to notebook or desktop computers. The dual internal antenna design gives enhanced wireless network coverage, while the advanced MIMO technology delivers improved system throughputs even in dense office environments.

The feature-packed ORiNOCO USB-9100 adapter also boasts a 'superspeed' USB 3.0 interface for seamless data transfers between the adapter and computer, without compromising on security with advanced WPA2 protected access. Additionally, the compact and sleek design reduces desktop clutter, making it ideal for enterprises and homes alike. These enterprise-class features of the ORiNOCO USB-9100 will enable this product to stand out from competitive but consumer-class offerings.

Given the increasing proliferation of 802.11ac wireless networks both within enterprises and as hot spots, the ORiNOCO USB-9100 adapter is ideal to provide blazing wireless connectivity to those end users who don't have 11ac-enabled devices. For example, many desktop computers don't come with any built-in Wi-Fi capability, and many laptop computers include older generation (slower) Wi-Fi capability. The ORiNOCO USB-9100 is a cost-effective method to enjoy the wireless and faster connectivity enabled by 11ac.

"We are pleased to introduce this 'Enterprise Class' USB to our Orinoco family. With its extensive list of features combined with a small form factor, it is designed to support both enterprise and industrial applications," said Greg Marzullo, CEO, Proxim Wireless. "The ORiNOCO USB-9100 has been built to meet bandwidth-intensive client demands, enabling users to take full advantage of high speed 802.11ac networks. This launch heralds a series of 'soon to come' ORiNOCO gigabit Wi-Fi innovations and future enhancements to our popular ORiNOCO product line."
