Proxim Wireless Corporation, a leading provider of outdoor wireless backhaul systems, announced the launch of its Tsunami QB-62000 product, a multi-gigabit addition to Proxim's comprehensive portfolio of reliable, secure and easily-deployed wireless backhaul solutions.
The Tsunami QB-62000 product offers high capacity, extremely reliable and cost-effective point-to-point (PtP) wireless backhaul solutions at rates of 1Gbps full duplex providing a total throughput of 2Gbps. This multi-Gigabit wireless backhaul equipment exceeds 4G cell site speed requirements making it one of the highest capacity wireless links available.
The QB-62000 product is a layer 2 bridge solution designed using state-of-the-art components making it the smallest unit on the market. The tight integration of its elements, including an integrated antenna, reduces the size of the device to 7 square inches, which can easily be integrated into typical picocell enclosures. Weighing only 2.5Kgs, with extremely small wind loading, the Tsunami® QB-62000 can be installed almost anywhere -- light poles, monopoles and more.
"At Proxim, we focus not only on technologically superior products but also on products that are easy for our customers to use. So, we're very pleased to launch the smallest 60GHz wireless point-to-point Ethernet bridge on the market," explained Lee Gopadze, President and CEO of Proxim Wireless. "Our QB-62000 products will provide substantial real-world benefits to our customers over competitive solutions because it literally fits in the palm of your hand. Its small size will enable our customers to quickly and easily install QB-62000 products in more locations than competitive products, allowing more flexibility in network planning. Further, its 60 GHz operation requires no licensing fees that can delay standard deployments which eases installations around the globe."
The Tsunami QB-62000 product requires a single Ethernet cable to provide power and data connectivity with cabling up to 100 meters long. Furthermore, it is fully manageable via the Web GUI interface and additional supporting protocols such as SNMPv3. This new product enables a more efficient and reliable wireless backhaul network delivery service. Its reduced footprint, efficient design, and state-of-the-art technology ensures delivery of high-speed connectivity solutions within the most compact unit in the industry.
