Interactive Partners with Proxim Wireless

With the advent of 802.11n technologies, the age of the truly wireless enterprise is here. With throughput speeds more than double that of many traditional wired LANs, today's enterprises can not only experience greater speed and efficiency, but with all the benefits of mobility as well.

The truly wireless enterprise is about far more than efficiency and convenience, though – it is about a drastic reduction in cost and complexity as well. With throughput performance of greater than 300Mbps (as compared to 80-100 Mbps for the wired LAN), IT no longer needs to spend the time and money to run wire to each and every desk, saving money not only in time spent, but also reducing the size (and cost) of Ethernet switches organizations need to buy. And because Proxim's WLAN solutions are distributed and do not require costly wireless controllers, organizations can avoid the cost of controller upgrades and power issues required to upgrade to 802.11n, while still enjoying a centrally-managed, scalable WLAN.

Enterprise mobility is no longer a luxury for the road warrior or the select few – it is increasingly a requirement for productivity at every stage of an organization. All employees benefit from being able to connect and do business from anywhere, and organizations are able to change more rapidly to better meet business demands. WLAN solutions from Proxim provide unparalleled flexibility and scalability for fast-changing organizations – enabling enterprises to easily redeploy or expand their workforces and facilities without the substantial delays and expense of installing cable or leasing lines.

Proxim Wireless has provided indoor and outdoor WLAN solutions to hundreds of thousands of organizations throughout the world, saving organizations money while enhancing productivity by enabling true, enterprise-wide mobility. And because Proxim is the only company to offer all the components in a complete end-to-end wireless solution – including seamless integration and management of all components – your enterprise WLAN can be integrated with Wi-Fi mesh, WiMAX and wireless backhaul products for the most flexible and scalable wireless systems available.
