Proxim Cuts Prices Of Access Points


Proxim Monday reduced the price of its Orinoco AP-2000 and AP-2500 access points by up to 34 percent.

The wireless LAN and WAN product vendor also unveiled an enterprise-class 802.11 access point solution called Orinoco AP-2000 11g. The kit provides a migration path for AP-2000 users to support 802.11g and allows users to add speeds of 54 Mbps to new or existing systems with backward compatibility to 802.11b, the company said.

The price of the AP-2000 access point is now $595, vs. a previous price of $895. The AP-2500 is now $795 vs. $1095.

"As enterprises embrace wireless LAN technology as a core part of their networking strategy, they are increasingly looking for cost-effective solutions that are a safe investment," said Angela Champness, senior vice president and general manager of Proxim's LAN division, in a statement.

The new migration kit is slated to be available in the second quarter at a price of $149.
