SUNNYVALE, Calif.-Wi-Fi and broadband wireless equipment provider Proxim Corp. announced its Tsunami broadband wireless products are being used in a metro-scale wireless network in the City of Oceanside, Calif., to link several facilities, including City Hall, the fire and police departments, and the water and harbor facilities.
“Like many communities across the nation, the City of Oceanside has experienced tremendous growth that was simply not being accommodated by our existing infrastructure,” explained Michael Sherwood, chief information officer for the City of Oceanside. “Using the Proxim Tsunami point-to-point radios, the new network meets our existing requirements and accommodates future growth, while dramatically lowering our costs. The new network has surpassed our expectations for cost reduction and can be easily expanded as our community grows.”
Proxim separately announced the promotion of Kevin Duffy to chief operating officer, and the appointments of Michael Angel as chief financial officer and Chris Jones as senior vice president of global sales.
Duffy previously served as senior vice president of product development at Proxim; Angel is joining from wireless infrastructure company Spectrian Corp., where he served as executive vice president and chief financial officer; and Jones previously served as Proxim’s vice president of North American sales and operations.
The company will announce its first-quarter 2004 financial results April 27 after the stock market closes. The company’s stock last week took a dive after it lowered its first-quarter financial expectations, which it blamed on product transitions, and lower-than-expected carrier revenue due to carrier consolidation and delayed deployments.
The company’s stock is currently trading at $1.47 per share.
