Wireless specialist Proxim claims its new Tsunami MP.11 will help resellers tap into a new wave of customers willing to deploy outdoor wireless networks.
The vendor claims the new product will be up to 50 per cent cheaper and 30 per cent faster than its previous outdoor router system. It covers distances of up to 25kms.
Tsunami MP.11 uses the Wireless Outdoor Router Protocol to exchange network traffic between a centralised router and subscriber units, which then communicate to wirelessly networked PCs, notebooks and PDAs.
“It would be a good long-term solution for education, local government or retail,” regional sales manager for Proxim A/NZ, Peter Davison, said.
“It also provides a quick response for large enterprise branch offices waiting to get fibre in but wanting instant access to high-speed data.”
Tsunami equipment is distributed by Integrity Data Systems and Triforce.
Tsunami MP.11 base station units support up to 100 subscriber units, each of which supports eight clients or more.
Resellers can also buy a QuickBridge 11 2.4GHz point-to-point kit containing a base station, subscriber unit, cables and antennas.
