Proxim Wireless Announces 4G Backhaul Product Lines

Proxim Wireless Corp., a provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, has announced its new 4G Backhaul product lines – the Tsunami QB-8100 point-to-point (PtP) and the Tsunami MP-8100 point-to-multipoint (PtMP). Both products exceed the International Telecommunications Union’s (ITU’s) performance requirements for 4G.

The new Tsunami product family combines MIMO and OFDM technologies with Proxim’s Wireless Outdoor Routing Protocol (WORP) to provide PtP and PtMP backhaul for carriers, WISPs and government entities.

Proxim said its new product lines provide the high performance necessary to backhaul a wider variety of outdoor video, voice and data applications, including:

  • Wireless backhaul for cellular voice and data – Very low latency over long distances, eliminating expensive recurring leased line charges and delivering the capability to backhaul the increasing connectivity needs of handhelds.
  • Last mile/rural broadband wireless access (BWA) – Competitive broadband service access alternative to DSL or cable for residences and T1 or Ethernet for businesses, including high-performance outdoor access. Proxim’s MIMO-enabled, low-cost CPEs support WISP business models all over the world.
  • Wireless video surveillance – Capable of supporting more high-definition IP surveillance video streams simultaneously with a single CPE. Used for monitoring city streets, airports, bridges, seaports, transportation hubs, offices and warehouses.

Both the Tsunami QB-8100 PtP and the Tsunami MP-8100 PtMP provide 300mbps and 600mbps PtP and PtMP systems. Performance is per link for PtP applications, and per sector for PtMP applications, with a range in excess of 70 kilometers.

The 300mbps data rate Proxim Tsunami QB-8100 point-to-point products and MP-8100 point-to-multipoint products are available immediately. The 600mbps data rate Proxim Tsunami series products are expected to be available by the end of Q4, 2009.
