SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Proxim Wireless Corporation, a global provider of broadband wireless equipment and wholly-owned subsidiary of Terabeam, Inc. (NASDAQ: TRBM - News), today announced that it has launched a family of WiMAX standard-based products that offer service providers a compelling cost profile for a high performance wireless solution in the 3.5 GHz band. Because the Tsunami MP.16 offers a modular, scalable approach to system deployment, a wider range of service providers will now be able to use the WiMAX technology -- from rural providers requiring less dense configurations to metropolitan providers who need to support more nodes at closer range.

"Proxim Wireless has long been known as an innovator and a leader in 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, and other radio frequency technology and products," said Lionel Chmilewsky, Vice President International Sales, Proxim Wireless. "But, we have not had a product for the rapidly-growing 3.5 GHz market. By leveraging the radio, mechanical, networking and management experience behind our existing Tsunami product line, we are bringing a proven platform to the 3.5 GHz market. While some competing products have been developed from scratch, the Tsunami MP.16 is actually our third-generation point-to-multipoint product set."

"As one of the leading telecommunications operators in the Netherlands, we are continually considering a variety of product options that will help us meet our future needs," said Keimpe Algra, Director, Enertel Wireless BV. "Enertel Wireless has been a very satisfied customer of Proxim Wireless. They have provided us with exceptional products and support, which is why we are currently evaluating the MP.16 3500 for the future at Enertel Wireless."
