The Company:

Telaxis Communications develops broadband wireless access equipment used by network service providers to deliver integrated voice, video and data services to business and residential subscribers. Its products provide a high performance alternative to other access technologies, such as traditional copper wires, digital subscriber lines and cable modems, that connect the network service provider and the subscriber. Telaxis’ products enable high-speed Internet access, electronic commerce, remote access, telecommuting and extensions of corporate networks to branch offices. The company’s product line consists of wireless transmitter and receiver equipment that is installed outdoors in a cell-based arrangement. Each cell consists of a hub that transmits and receives network traffic to and from customer premises equipment, or CPE units, installed at multiple subscriber locations. This cell-based arrangement is commonly referred to as point-to-multipoint architecture. Millitech has developed two families of broadband point-to-multipoint wireless access products. The company’s products have been successfully demonstrated in more than 40 customer trials worldwide over the last four years.
