Proxim Wireless December 2021 Update

In Manufacturer Update, Proxim by Robert Fruchey

Proxim has several exciting products coming next year but we just wanted to mention a few highlights of the last year.

Proxim Edge

It’s just one year since we first introduced the Edge Point to Point and Point to MultiPoint product lines, and we are delighted that the flexibility of these products has proven to be a winner.

The Edge products offer excellent flexibility and are a perfect solution for short, medium, and long-range applications with an integrated antenna and software selectable external antenna connectors.

AP-9200R

In September, we released our latest rugged outdoor Wi-Fi 5 solution, and early customer feedback has been very positive. With support for Proxim’s mobile app, BlueConnect, Dual radios, a rugged metal enclosure, and support for MIMO 4×4, this product delivers exceptional performance for outdoor Wi-Fi networking.
