Tsunami® MP-8160 CPE
5.9 – 6.4 GHz Carrier Grade 100 Mbps CPE with NLos, 2x2 MIMO Capabilities


Presenting a 100Mbps high performance cost optimized customer premises equipment in a compact form factor operating in the 5.900 – 6.425 GHz Frequency Range!

Proxim Wireless is a leader and an early innovator in wireless technology for providing high-speed, long-range broadband wireless access solutions. The Tsunami® MP-8160-CPE is Proxim's next generation point-to-multi-point subscriber unit.

The MP-8160-CPE provides maximum throughput performance tuned for WISP and Video Surveillance markets. The MP-8160-CPE comes in an outdoor IP67 rated form factor, and it is designed specifically for the WISP and Video Surveillance market to accelerate the service provider's break-even point, making this product ideal for large-scale wireless deployments.

Supreme Performance

  • Supports the frequency bands from 5.900 to 6.425 GHz
  • Features an integrated dual polarity panel antenna and a 2x2 MIMO high power radio capable of up to 25dBm transmit power
  • Uses radio module with on board surge protection
  • Features a very small form factor and an outdoor rated IP67 Metal enclosure
  • Supports up to 8 QoS Classes; and 8 Service Flows per class
  • Enables flexible bandwidth allocation for tiered services with aggregate throughput of up to 100Mbps

Mobile Roaming Enables New Applications

Proxim innovation delivers mobile roaming of Customer Premises Equipment (CPE) between Base Station Units (BSU). Public safety first responder networks, transportation system monitoring and telemetry, and mobile security and surveillance are now all possible with a low cost, robust system.

  • Fast handoff at speeds up to 295 km per hour (185 miles per hour).
  • Customizable roaming parameter maintains minimum bandwidth required for application performance

Reducing Costs for Wireless ISPs

  • Flexible frequency bands (both licensed and unlicensed) worldwide provide reliable wireless broadband
  • Dual IPv4 and IPv6 stack for transparent evolution to tomorrow networks
  • Low-cost bundle including both radio and mounting kit provides the industry's most aggressive price point and reduces the cost barriers for wireless broadband

Easy to Install

  • Designed for quick, easy installation and compatible with Tsunami® MP-8160 Series products
  • Deployment tools include antenna alignment and remote configuration management
  • MIMO & Advanced Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing techniques enhances non-line of-sight performance improving deployment in challenging areas
  • Spectrum analysis feature helps to study frequency bands for interference, and select a relatively low interference channel

All-in-One CPE with Security & Gateway Features

  • Built-in feature rich network protocols for Bridging, Routing and Gateway functionality
  • Advanced AES-128 bit encryption protects over-the-air transmission
  • Radio mutual authentication eliminates unauthorized use of the system by rogue subscriber units and man-in-the middle attacks
  • MAC, Ether type, IP address packet filtering provides granular network security
  • Highly secured remote management access via SSL, SSH and SNMPv3
  • Proxim’s proprietary Wireless Outdoor Routing Protocol (WORP® ) prevents snooping
