LONDON -- 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 Swedish residential broadband provider Glocalnet, a subsidiary of Norway’s Telenor, has selected and deployed Proxim’s AP-4000MR access points to launch Sweden’s first outdoor internet access network to the country’s twenty-five largest towns by June 2007. The new service, GlocalZone, is free of charge for its 500 000 customers, whilst for non-subscribers prices will range from SEK19 (USD2.6) per hour to SEK99 for a full month.

Glocalzone, involves the deployment of 500 Proxim AP-4000MR access points across Sweden’s cities including Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo. Proxim’s seamless integration between AP4000 indoor and AP4000MR outdoor mesh access points will enable Glocalnet to extend its outdoor Wi-Fi networks indoors.

The weatherproof rugged outdoor housing of Proxim’s access points was one of the key factors in the selection process. “The Proxim kit is easy to deploy and rugged enough to withstand severe weather conditions. Whilst we had a mild winter in Sweden, temperatures still fell below zero degrees Celsius but the technology was not affected in any way by snow, ice or other weather-related incidents”, points out Mathias Tonnesson, Glocalnet Project Manager New Business, GlocalZone. “Proxim has so far really over-delivered for us. The company’s outdoor mesh products have allowed us to embark on delivering Sweden’s first real outdoor internet.”
