Proxim Aims New Wireless Products At SMB

Moves SMB customers toward wireless LANs, with rollout of a new entry-level access point and management tools.

Proxim Monday is easing SMB customers into wireless LAN deployments with the rollout of a new entry-level access point and new management tools.

Aimed at customers with as few as 25 users, Proxim's new Orinoco AP-700 brings enterprise-class features such as security and Quality of Service (QoS), downstream, said Ben Gibson, vice president of corporate marketing at Proxim, Sunnyvale, Calif.

"Security problems are the most important issue for small businesses," Gibson said.

The new AP-700, the successor to Proxim's current AP-600, includes new security features such advanced rogue AP and client detection on both the 2.4-Ghz and 5-Ghz bands.

It also adds support for 802.11i, a wireless security standard recently ratified by the IEEE that provides AES encryption.
