Proxim Wireless Introduces its 802.11n Guarantee Program to Ensure Compatibility With Final Standard

Worldwide Program to Provide Free Updates to Final 802.11n Standard

SILICON VALLEY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 09/09/09 -- Proxim Wireless Corporation (OTCQX: PRXM) (PINKSHEETS: PRXM), a leading provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, today announced its 802.11n Compatibility Guarantee program for any Proxim 802.11n draft 2.0 WLAN products that have been or are purchased from our distribution channel worldwide prior to formal IEEE approval of the 802.11n standard. This program will guarantee compatibility with the final 802.11n standard -- currently scheduled for IEEE approval in September 2009 -- providing any necessary updates needed to be compliant with the final standard.

As a result, Proxim Wireless' end customers can enjoy the performance benefits of the highest-performance Wi-Fi® products on the market today -- Proxim's ORiNOCO® AP-8000 and AP-800 Access Points -- with the peace of mind that they will be updated (if necessary) to the future standard for free.

"It is unlikely that today's 802.11n Draft 2.0 products will require any substantial upgrades in order to be compliant with the forthcoming standard -- but with this Compatibility Guarantee program we are assuring all customers worldwide that they can enjoy all the benefits of 802.11n today without having to worry about any changes," said Robb Henshaw, Director of Marketing & Communications for Proxim Wireless.

After the 802.11n standard is ratified, Proxim Wireless will make a formal public announcement when the update program begins and at that time will state the specific end date and explain how end customers can receive the free software update.

This compatibility program applies to the initial final approved version of the 802.11n standard. Proxim has not yet extended coverage of this program to any subsequent versions of the 802.11n standard after initial final approval.
