Proxim Wireless and NetLogix Partner to Help Organizations Prepare for the Upcoming Stimulus Deadline

Companies Provide Application Preparation Services and Resources; Can Help Prepare Grant Applications Before August 14 Deadline

SILICON VALLEY, CA--(Marketwire - August 5, 2009) - Proxim Wireless Corporation (OTCQX: PRXM) (PINKSHEETS: PRXM), a leading provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, and NetLogix, a leader in wireless telecommunications services, today announced that the companies have partnered to make available a broad suite of stimulus grant application services and resources for organizations preparing stimulus grant applications in the United States. The combination of free resources and paid services is designed to help organizations identify the best funding options available and to have their grant applications prepared before the stimulus "Round One" deadline, which is Friday, August 14, 2009.

To provide an overview of funding options available to organizations looking to deploy wireless broadband networks, the companies have prepared a "Government Grants Resource Guide," which can be downloaded for free at Proxim's site at http://www.proxim.com/learn/library/whitepapers/. This resource provides helpful tips, overviews of the different funding opportunities, and direct links to the application sites and resources.

"Many organizations think that the $4.7 billion in direct stimulus funding is the only funding set aside for broadband deployments, but in reality there are a large number of other funding opportunities as well," said Robb Henshaw, Director of Marketing and Communications at Proxim Wireless. "This guide provides a helpful overview to ensure that organizations know what their options are, and a one-stop resource for direct access to the pertinent application sites."

For organizations that plan to apply for the $4.7 billion in NTIA Broadband Initiatives Program (BIP) or the Broadband Technologies Opportunity Program (BTOP) funding, the companies are also offering direct application preparation services to ensure that organizations can meet the looming August 14 deadline. These services are available directly from NetLogix's site at https://resources.netlogix.com/stimulus.asp, and include:

--  Complete Stimulus Grant Application Package - A fully-customizable
    stimulus application template that is the starting point to a great NTIA
    broadband stimulus application.
--  Point-to-Point Link Analysis - A must-do for any network design that
    is for middle-mile projects, or projects that include a backhaul plan.
--  Point-to-Multipoint Propagation Analysis - An integral part of any
    network feasibility justification for projects that include a network
    distribution layer.
--  Technical Writing - Leverage NetLogix's radiant history of successful
    proposal submissions.
--  Professional Engineer Approval (PE Stamp) - Every NTIA application
    exceeding $1 million requires a stamp-of-approval from a Professional
    Engineer from the state in which you are applying.
--  Network Feasibility Assessment - NetLogix can perform an entire
    network feasibility assessment for your project. NetLogix can develop a
    project plan for your desired implementation, and integrate the results of
    your application.
--  Full Network Design - NetLogix's team is made up of telecommunications
    specialists that can completely design a network for your stimulus
    application. Whether it's WiMAX or WiFi, middle- or last-mile, the
    combination of Proxim's end-to-end broadband wireless portfolio and
    NetLogix's professional design and implementation services ensures that
    NetLogix can design and implement the right wireless network for your
    specific needs.
    

All of the above services require a one-week turnaround time, so to ensure that your applications or network design reviews can be completed before the August 14 deadline, please sign up at NetLogix's site immediately before August 7, 2009.

"NetLogix has a long and successful history of preparing technical documentation for broadband networks," said Eric DaVersa, Vice President of Business Development at NetLogix. "We partner with Proxim because they have a complete end-to-end wireless portfolio, which gives us the freedom to select the right blend of wireless technologies for any given network. No other vendor gives us that flexibility."

Though there are a large number of different funding opportunities available for the deployment of broadband networks, one common thread in preparing successful applications is the need to show that the requested funds will be used wisely. Wireless has proven time and again to be more cost-effective than the wired alternatives, and as a result many organizations are proposing the use of broadband wireless networks to extend connectivity to rural areas or to deploy wireless video surveillance networks.
