LONDON -- Proxim Corporation (Nasdaq: PROX), a global leader in wireless networking equipment for Wi-Fi and broadband wireless networks, today announced new security and scalability enhancements for its ORiNOCO Access Point family that reaffirms Proxim's leading position in wireless networks for the enterprise. Building on Proxim's popular tri-mode 802.11b/g/a ORiNOCO AP-2000 Access Point, these new features deliver the ideal solution for secure, wireless LAN connectivity for enterprises of all sizes.

To provide the highest levels of security available, the ORiNOCO Access Points now include advanced rogue Access Point detection. These features improve security by proactively searching for and identifying rogue Access Points that could compromise the enterprise network, eliminating time-consuming physical searches. SNMPv3 and SSL secure management interfaces further eliminate security vulnerabilities through management portals, and automatic network-based re-configuration of the Access Point foils unauthorised attempts to locally disable security settings.

In addition to security, rapid, low cost deployment is a key requirement of many enterprise customers, particularly in the hospitality industry where Wi-Fi services are rapidly becoming critical to effectively serve business travellers. To meet this need, ORiNOCO Access Points now offer wireless repeating on all 802.11 standards. This allows quick creation of Wi-Fi cells where structured Ethernet wiring may be unavailable, or cost and time prohibitive, such as long corridors and warehouses.

Additionally, for customers who need to deploy Access Points more densely, the new ORiNOCO release delivers adaptive transmit power control to allow adjustment of Wi-Fi cell size as appropriate for the density of deployment. This results in a lower total cost of ownership, with fewer access points deployed in areas with lower client and application bandwidth demands, and better performance in higher density areas.

"Proxim's ORiNOCO Access Points already offer advanced features such as Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), AES encryption readiness, RADIUS authentication and wireless VoIP support," said Kevin Duffy, senior vice president of product management. "With these added security and scalability features, we are increasing deployment flexibility and confidence in network security, as well as improving wide-scale network manageability."

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
