The Harmony 802.11b CompactFlash Card will enable Pocket PC users to stay connected to their enterprise LANs without sacrificing connection speeds or reliability, helping to improve users’ productivity.
“Pocket PC users need a fast, simple solution to wirelessly connect with enterprise LANs,” said Lynn Chroust, director of Proxim’s Commercial Networks Business Unit. “Proxim’s Harmony 802.11b CompactFlash Card provides the fastest connection available, with interoperability to existing 802.11b environments, making it an excellent choice for business and professional users.”

Proxim’s Harmony 802.11b CompactFlash card enables connection speeds up to 11 Mbps, making it ideal for the robust applications needed by mobile users.
