Posted on 06 April 2009 by Quantum Wimax


Proxim is First to Break the 300 Mbps Speed Barrier for 802.11n Solutions, Enabling WLAN Networks at Half the Cost.

With the introduction of its ORiNOCO 802.11n product line, Proxim Wireless is announcing the availability of the industry’s first 802.11n solution to achieve 320 Mbps of throughput with a dualradio solution. In addition, Proxim’s new 802.11n products have been designed to be customerfriendly and overcome the barriers of cost and complexity faced by competing products to deliver 802.11n networks at half the price of existing WLANs. With Proxim’s ORiNOCO® AP-8000 and AP- 800 802.11n access points, organizations of all sizes can achieve higher performance than their existing wired and wireless LANs while avoiding the costly controller upgrades, deployment challenges, and additional network planning that have deterred enterprises from upgrading to 802.11n. IEEE 802.11n is the next generation of the Wi-Fi standard. The primary advantages of 802.11n compliant products are significantly higher throughput and longer range. With the advent of 802.11n technology, the truly unwired enterprise is possible.

Here are the main applications of the Proxim Wireless ORiNOCO 802.11n product line :

  • Security and Surveillance : High definition IP-surveillance cameras for monitoring city streets, airports, bridges, seaports, transportation hubs, offices and warehouses
  • Enterprise : Enable office workers to be mobile while delivering greater throughput performance than at their desks
  • Healthcare : High resolution image files can be transferred with safety and higher speeds than wired networks
  • Hotspots : Video and high-speed broadband access solutions for municipalities, public access and local businesses
