Proxim Wireless Announces Low-Cost, Fully-Featured Subscriber Unit
Proxim Wireless has announced the launch of its new Tsunami 835 series of low-cost plus full-feature subscriber units. The products are available for order today.
The 835 products include the Proxim MP-835-CPE-10 and Proxim MP-835-CPE-25 and are primarily targeted to meet the needs of the wireless Internet Service Provider (WISP) market, specifically those WISPs looking to provide wireless broadband connectivity to small-to-medium businesses (SMBs) and consumers. Infrastructure costs are of critical importance to WISPs as their business models only work with a sufficiently low-cost subscriber unit. While consumers and SMBs have an insatiable appetite for bandwidth, they also are very cost-sensitive and they are always looking for who can provide them the most data at the lowest cost. A low-cost but full-featured subscriber unit is critical to meeting these market requirements.
License Upgradeable Throughput = Low Initial Cost + Capability to Grow
In addition to sharing the features of Proxim’s previous subscriber units, Proxim has expanded its license-upgradeable throughput capabilities. The 835 products will be available for purchase with throughput capabilities of 10 Mbps or 25 Mbps. A WISP initially deploying a network can start by deploying the 10 Mbps 835 product and as the WISP’s network and its customers’ desires for increased throughput grow, the WISP can simply buy a license to upgrade the throughput capability of its network. The need for expensive and time-consuming equipment replacement and bucket truck rolls are replaced by a simple software-enabled subscriber unit upgrade.
Additional Tsunami 835 Product Features
Additional features of the 835 products include:
Powered by WORP®: All 835 products are powered by Proxim’s proprietary Wireless Optimized Routing Protocol (WORP®) software. Proxim’s WORP software delivers tangible, real-world benefits to Proxim’s customers including the ability to operate either in GPS-synchronized mode or asynchronous mode, more net bandwidth enabled through spectral efficiency, Quality of Service (QoS) settings enabling the prioritization of the most time-sensitive network traffic, and Dynamic Data Rate Selection (DDRS) calibrating the network to the most appropriate modulation settings in the RF environment for continuous high throughput on the network.

Comment from Proxim
Our goal in introducing the 835 series was to provide a subscriber unit free of compromise,” said Greg Marzullo, President & CEO of Proxim Wireless. “We wanted a unit that would provide a world-class feature set and robustness while also enabling the bandwidth upgradeability and entry point costs which our customers are seeking. Often achieving their desired cost objectives in the past has required service providers to forgo product features, post-sale support, warranty, and product reliability. We wanted to introduce a platform that would address both sets of requirements.
