LightPointe Announces Customer Appreciation Two for One Wireless Bridge Sale on Its AireBridge Series Through December 31st

SAN DIEGO, CA — (Marketwired) — 12/09/14 — LightPointe, a leading manufacturer of Gigabit capacity outdoor point-to-point wireless bridges, announced a special Customer Appreciation Two for One promotion which runs through the end of the year. Customers placing orders for LightPointe–s AireBridge Series will receive a free upgrade that includes both a laser bridge — for unsurpassed transmission speed and signal security — and a radio bridge for all-weather system redundancy and backup to ensure up to 99.999% availability.

„All of us at LightPointe would like to thank our customers for our best year ever by offering a limited time Customer Appreciation Two for One sale through December 31st,“ said John Taylor, vice president of sales. „Our first, second, and fourth quarters broke all records thanks to strong sales of Free Space Optics wireless bridges, Ultra Low Latency 60 and 80 GHz backhaul radios, and our patented hybrid laser-RF bridges which automatically select the best transmission method for optimum performance. Customers ordering any wireless bridge in the AireBridge Series will receive a free upgrade which includes both the laser technology and RF technology, for optimum performance.“

Demand for wireless bridges has skyrocketed due to businesses, schools, and government agencies wanting to own their own networks and connect buildings without monthly fees — and due to the exponential growth in broadband usage from smartphones, iPads, Android tablets and other mobile devices.

AireBridge laser technology features:

World–s only software defined Free Space Optics (SD-FSO) bridge.

Up to 2 Gbps aggregated link capacity.

Full-duplex connectivity for highly secure transmission up to 1,100 meters at 3dB/km (750m at 10dB/km; 600m at 17dB/km) with optional HyBridge technology.

Configurable bandwidth (buy only the bandwidth needed). Each side of the link can ordered to transmit at 250, 500, or 1,000 Mbps.

Upgradeable bandwidth (upgrade either or both sides of the link later).

Optional HyBridge all-weather „rtMAP“ technology (the system monitors in real time and automatically switches between ultra-fast laser or RF path). Available with LightPointe integrated radio, or add your own appropriate radio.

Easy management via integrated AireManager web-based control system (SNMP v.1/v.2c compatible; alarm reports; SYSLOG; user selectable in-band//out-of-band interface support; remote firmware upload; integration into SNMP mgt system via MIB libraries).

Flexible connection options (RJ-45 copper data interface, optional mm or sm fiber data interfaces).

Additional radio frequency features included free of charge:

A turn-key 5.4/5.8 GHz radio, which uses widespread unlicensed 5.4/5.8 GHz frequencies and license-free optical spectrum.

Throughput is 150 Mbps half duplex.

Maximized Distance DualPath feature enables longer distances due to rate adaptive use of multiple bands.

Superior RF technology via both OFDM and 4 antenna/2×2 MIMO technology (higher data rates and lower interference in congested areas).

Superior QoS due to Ethernet Port Flow Control and intelligent packet queuing, providing priority to voice/video traffic when switching to alternative RF path.

Channel Shifting operates at frequencies different from those used in unlicensed 802.11 networks, for increased security. Links are undetectable by most 5 GHz devices.

AES 256 encryption for optimum security.

LightPointe () is a San Diego-based manufacturer of wireless Gigabit capacity bridges for enterprise and 4G/LTE carrier markets, including small cell backhaul.
