The product's unmatched quality, reliability, and design make it well-suited for even the toughest urban and outdoor environments
MOUNTAIN VIEW, California, Sept. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the wireless base station market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Proxim Wireless Corporation with the 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation. Proxim Wireless Corporation's Tsunami® Multipoint 820 series base station units are designed to meet customers' unmet needs at a lower cost than competing devices. Due to the two-board architecture that separates the radio and processor of the Tsunami® 820 series base station units, the company's scientists have managed to take advantage of cutting-edge radio and processing components. This has enabled the product to deliver the same performance as its previous-generation Tsunami® 8200I wireless base station units at approximately half the cost.
To ensure unfaltering performance, scientists at Proxim Wireless Corporation use global, license-free frequency bands that provide the Tsunami® 820 series base station units with highly reliable wireless broadband. In addition, they have synchronized the wireless base station unit's internal clock with a pulse-per-second signal that the device receives from a Global Positioning System module that is connected to its RJ11 serial port or by the base station's RJ45 Ethernet port.
"Furthermore, Proxim Wireless Corporation's engineers have ensured that the Tsunami® Multipoint 820 series has a compact form factor and made it mountable on a pole, next to a video camera, to provide citizen protection in metropolitan areas," said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Mike Valenti. "The packaged version of the product measures only 300x275x135 millimeters and weighs 3.6 kilograms."
Despite its small form factor, the Tsunami® 820 series base station units boast an array of built-in features and functions. The product comprises of a 2x2 multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO), high-power radio that is capable of 26 decibel-milliwatts transmission power and is available with either a 15-decibel isotropic-integrated antenna or N-Type connectors. Moreover, if desired, end users can upgrade the 50 megabyte-per-second (Mbps) data transmission rate of the device to a 100 megabits-per-second license or 100 Mbps of throughput, with maximum data rates of 300 Mbps
As such, the Proxim Wireless Corporation design team equipped the Tsunami® 820 series base station with 2 x 2 MIMO capabilities and advanced orthogonal frequency division multiplexing to give the device non line-of-sight capability aboard transit buses and enable it to operate in visually challenging situations.
"End users can install the Tsunami® 820 series base station units in the toughest urban and outdoor environments," noted Valenti. "The product can function in temperatures ranging from 40º to 131º Fahrenheit, humidity up to 100 percent, and withstand winds of 112 miles per hour. The product is also dust- and waterproof with an Ingress Protection rating of 67."
With Tsunami® 820 series base station units, end users' dilemma over whether to purchase low-cost, compact wireless base stations with few features, or invest in expensive yet robust base stations, has become a thing of the past. Enterprises and governments considering the installation of smaller wireless networks can now make purchasing decisions with ease.
