Army Picks Proxim
SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Proxim Wireless Corporation, a global pioneer of end-to-end solutions in Wi-Fi® mesh, WiMAX, WLAN, and wireless backhaul and wholly owned subsidiary of Terabeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRBM), today announced that Fort Dix, a major training and mobilization center for the U.S. Army Reserve and National Guard, is using Proxim’s TeraBridge™ point-to-point and Tsunami™ MP.11 point-to-multipoint products to connect 17 separate sites and two transportable towers. Deploying these cost-efficient and easy to manage products has enabled Fort Dix to substantially increase the range and extent of wireless coverage on the Base. Booz Allen Hamilton, a global strategy and technology consulting firm, assisted Fort Dix in the wireless network design and deployment.
Fort Dix, which is located in Burlington County, New Jersey, covers an area of 11.3 square miles and provides regional base operations support to on-post and off-post active and reserve units of all services. A daily average of more than 13,500 persons live or work within the garrison and its tenant organizations.
“As a major government installation with responsibility for training hundreds of thousands of service personnel each year and supporting daily base operations, the availability and reliability of our wireless network is critical,” said Donald C. Rhodes of the Directorate of Information Management Office (DOIM), Fort Dix. “The Proxim equipment that we have deployed as the foundation of our backhaul network – including those on our transportable towers and trailers – has met our most stringent requirements and helps us deliver high-speed connectivity and information access to all those we serve.”
