Proxim WiMAX Network Enables CTV Infotech to Provide IPTV to the Home

8/14/08 - Proxim Wireless Corporation (NASDAQ: PRXM), a leading provider of end-to-end broadband wireless systems that deliver the quadruple play, announced that it has provided WiMAX equipment to CTV Infotech, a subsidiary of Chinese Television Company Ltd., for its wireless broadband triple play solution. CTV Infotech is utilizing a wireless network consisting of Proxim's products from end-to-end to deliver IPTV, real-time news reporting capabilities, and VoIP for the Taiwanese market. CTV Infotech's network consists of a combination of Proxim's Tsunami MP.11 and Tsunami MP.16 point-to-multipoint products, Tsunami.GX point-to-point products, and ORiNOCO AP-4000 access point equipment.

Prior to the deployment of Proxim's WiMAX equipment, CTV Infotech was using its satellite news gathering (SNG) transmission as the basic mode of operation. CTV Infotech then recognized that WiMAX could offer larger bandwidth and higher capacity -- with long range -- and therefore chose to work with Smartway Digital, a Proxim partner, to replace its satellite output with the more cost-effective and higher performance wireless broadband radios from Proxim.

Using streaming IPTV over Proxim's WiMAX network, CTV Infotech can transmit real-time video to various news centres and increase the number of real-time news gathering locations, which was previously limited by the number of SNG vehicles available. CTV Infotech is now also able to transmit and broadcast digital video over Proxim's wireless broadband system, enabling end-users to watch mobile television, listen to audio, and enjoy other interactive services -- all from their wireless-enabled handheld devices.

"Our TV program production and broadcasting capabilities need to evolve as our network expands, so we strive to embrace new technologies that can help advance our services," said Mr. Nan-Hung Lin, General Manager at CTV Infotech Co. Ltd. "We work with companies such as Proxim Wireless and Smartway Digital to ensure that we continue to deliver state-of-the-art multimedia solutions to our audience and provide superior real-time information broadcasting."

"This deployment was especially challenging because we needed to integrate different kinds of wireless networks, as well as AV compression, with WiMAX," said Mr. WeiChen Wang, VP of Sales, at Smartway Digital Co., the Proxim Wireless partner that implemented the WiMAX network. "Proxim's end-to-end wireless product portfolio is ideal for such a deployment, since the equipment provides end-to-end QoS, which is critical for voice and video, and enables us to customize a network to meet the precise wireless needs of our customers with the confidence that the equipment will interact well throughout the network."

"Proxim has a long history as an innovator in the wireless broadband market and was an early proponent of WiMAX technology. This deployment illustrates the benefits of Proxim's end-to-end solution by providing a more cost effective and higher capacity solution than the previous satellite-based system, enabling the delivery of wireless IPTV to more people," said Lionel Chmilewsky, EVP Worldwide Sales at Proxim Wireless. "Taiwan is a key growth area for us, offering significant market opportunities for WiMAX as well as other technologies in our broadband wireless product portfolio."
