Wireless broadband equipment vendor Proxim Wireless introduced a 4G backhaul product line for both the point-to-point and the point-to-multipoint markets.
Proxim said the products' performance requirements exceed the International Telecommunication Union's requirements for 4G networks. The current generation of products deliver data rates up to 300 Mbps, but versions released in the fourth quarter will double those rates to 600 Mbps. The product line combines MIMO and OFDM technologies with Proxim's Wireless Outdoor Routing Protocol (WORP).
Proxim is offering the Tsunami QB-8100 point-to-point and the Tsunami MP-8100 point-to-multipoint solutions and targeting its existing carrier customer base, which includes Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile, the government sector and the wireless ISP market. The vendor is expecting to cash in on some of the stimulus money the federal government is doling out to entities looking to deploy broadband in rural areas.
Proxim CEO Pankaj Manglik said both products offer low latency and capacities as high as 300 Mbps with an extended range of 70 kilometers. The triple MIMO antennas allow deployments in areas that don't have a clear line of sight between nodes.
