Access Consulting has deployed Proxim Wireless’ wireless solutions to provide the town of Elk River, ID, with its first-ever broadband access network. Elk River, which funded the broadband wireless network through a Federal grant, provides an example for similar rural towns throughout the country struggling to find a cost-effective means of bringing broadband access to previously un-reached areas.

In order to overcome the high cost associated with trenching for fiber or copper as well as the service issues often associated with satellite connectivity, Access Consulting turned to Proxim Wireless. In Elk River, Access Consulting has deployed Proxim’s Tsunami MP.11 5054-R point-to-multipoint radios to provide backhaul links across town, as well as Proxim outdoor ORiNOCO AP-4000 MR/LR access points, which provide the city-wide Wi-Fi access. In addition, they have deployed ORiNOCO AP-700 and AP-4000 access points to provide indoor Wi-Fi access within the town’s motel and condo complex.
