The Next-Generation Broadband Wireless Access Solution Adds WiMAX Functionality Today
Proxim Wireless is proud to introduce enhanced features to the field-proven Tsunami MP.11 point-to-multipoint product line. The MP.11 series has enabled municipalities and service providers to bridge the digital divide, increase productivity, cut network costs, and create new business opportunities all through advanced broadband wireless networking. Advanced features include: WiMAX Quality of Service (QoS); roaming with seamless handoffs at speeds up to 200 km/hour; dynamic frequency selection (DFS), which has already received EN 301-893 v1.3.1 certification,1 and extended range. Available in outdoor and indoor models, the MP.11 series is capable of supporting converged voice, video and data transmission in fixed and mobile applications, bringing capabilities of the IEEE 802.16e (mobile WiMAX) standard to market now, for license-free frequency bands available globally. Existing MP.11 installations can even be upgraded in the field.
•Frequency support for 2.4 GHz with 13 total channels, four 5 GHz bands (5.15, 5.25, 5.47, and 5.725 GHz) with 80+ non-overlapping channels and scalable performance from 6 to 54 Mbps
all selectable via simple user interfaces
•Advanced revenue-enhancing features are standard including flexible bandwidth provisioning for DSL, T1 or Ethernet-like tiered services as well as NAT and DHCP for IP-based storage and e-mail hosting
WiMAX QoS Provides New Revenue Opportunities for Service Providers IEEE 802.16 (WiMAX) QoS provides a higher level of prioritization than any available 802.1-based schemes from currently existing products. As many as eight classes of service, with up to eight service flows per class, are supported. This is especially important for emerging services like VoIP and streaming video applications. As a result, service providers will have more options for managing their bandwidth more effectively and can make better, more informed decisions about their service management strategies and revenue-generating opportunities.
Mobile Roaming Enables New Applications Proxim innovation delivers another wireless industry first mobile roaming of Subscriber Units (SU) between Base Station Units (BSU). Public safety first responder networks, transportation system monitoring and telemetry, and mobile security and surveillance are now all possible with a low cost, robust system.
•Fast handoff at speeds up to 200 km per hour (120 miles per hour) with handoff times as low as 40 ms
•Customizable roaming parameter maintains minimum bandwidth required for application performance
