PEC deploys Proxim Campus WLAN
Silicon Valley, CA--(Marketwire - September 30, 2009)
Proxim Wireless Corporation (OTCQX: PRXM) (PINKSHEETS: PRXM), a leading provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, announced today that the Punjab Engineering College (PEC) University of Technology in Chandigarh, India, has deployed Proxim's Wi-Fi mesh equipment to provide a secure wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) for its residential faculty areas. The university selected Proxim after evaluating several products and determining that adding centralized WLAN switches was cost prohibitive. As a result, they deployed Proxim's ORiNOCO® AP-4000MR-LR and AP-4900MR-LR products to create a dependable and secure wireless mesh network that could provide the high-performance access needed throughout the residential areas.
"The Wireless Mesh Network was required to be deployed as a part of a sponsored project from the Indian Government in order to perform experiments relating to the draft 802.11s standard and hence for conducting real time experiments, testing and validation of results," said Prof. Divya, Chief Investigator of the sponsored project at PEC University of Technology. "With this mesh, we are able to deploy secure, scalable and reliable wireless connectivity which was much needed."
The project was funded by a grant that was awarded to PEC University of Technology by the Department of Information Technology in the Ministry of Communications & IT of the Government of India.
