SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM APPOINTS PROXIM WIRELESS AS OFFICIAL WIRELESS NETWORKING SUPPLIER

SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM is proud to welcome Proxim Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXM), a leader in core-to-client solutions for broadband wireless networks, as official team wireless networking equipment supplier for the Formula One season commencing in Melbourne, Australia.

Proxim ORiNOCO AP-4000 Dual Radio Access Points will be installed in the SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM motor homes and hospitality areas, as well as in the pit garage and other external facilities. All the indoor and outdoor Access Points will interconnect to provide a seamless Wi-Fi network across the area. The AP-4000s offer mesh functionality ensuring a reliable, secure and easy-to-deploy wireless network, which removes the need for leased lines and reduces associated costs.

Proxim Tsunami QuickBridge wireless bridges were used during the Formula One season last year, providing a bridge between the SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM pits and the server truck. These easy-to-install QuickBridge products proved reliable and robust throughout the season, which led the SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM to choose to deploy the Proxim ORiNOCO AP-4000 Access Points this year.

Gavin Noble, Radio Communications Manager, SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM

"We're always looking for ways to reduce costs. By using a wireless network instead of leased lines at the race tracks offers us significant savings. The QuickBridge products were really successful last season and we're confident that the AP-4000 Access Points will be highly beneficial to the team during this season. We're also considering video monitoring and wireless VoIP for this season using Proxim Wireless technology."

Anthony Fulgoni, VP International Strategic Sales, Proxim Wireless

"Following our successful Wi-Fi network at the Daytona 500 in Florida, we're really pleased that our technology is now going to benefit the SUPER AGURI F1 TEAM during the prestigious Formula One Grand Prix season."
