Las Vegas, NV, May 22, 2013 --( LightPointe Wireless, manufacturer of the world’s fastest, lowest latency wireless bridges, and Microcom Technologies, a distributor of wireless equipment, are showcasing a new Ultra Low Latency wireless bridge at the CTIA tradeshow in Las Vegas, Nevada May 21-23, in booth 4060. The companies are displaying a Gigabit capacity Ethernet link from LightPointe’s Aire X-Stream Series, which includes 4th generation Free Space Optics bridges, 60 GHz small cell backhaul radios, and 70/80 GHz e-band millimeter wave radios.

“We’re excited to be at the CTIA show and present LightPointe’s Ultra Low Latency Aire X-Stream Series,” said David Golob, president of Microcom Technologies. “As a distributor of products for many world-class wireless manufacturers, adding LightPointe’s portfolio to our line card was an easy decision as no other wireless manufacturer offers such a selection of all three leading technologies—optical communications bridges, millimeter wave backhaul radios, and all-weather hybrid FSO-radio bridges for always-on reliability. The end result is that Microcom’s customers have a choice of point-to-point wireless options which can be mixed and matched within enterprise networks, security and camera backhaul applications, and carrier environments. And what’s really exciting is that LightPointe, which is now ISO 9001-2008 certified, recently made the decision to include a 2-year warranty on all of its wireless products, which gives Microcom’s customers added peace of mind and can save thousands on extended warranty costs.”

Microcom Technologies is a stocking, wholesale distributor for a wide variety of premium quality products for the wireless industry such as long-range outdoor bridges, access points, IP video, VoIP solutions, and wireless surveillance systems.

“The CTIA show in Las Vegas is a great venue to showcase our point-to-point solutions, and we’re pleased to partner with Microcom and highlight our latest wireless bridge technologies,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand CEO for LightPointe. “The Aire X-Stream Series provides the industry’s lowest latency, achieving less than 10 nanoseconds equipment/terminal latency. These advanced outdoor wireless bridges have been proven in Ultra Low Latency networks, including High Frequency Trading environments and in military network applications where signal transmission speed is critical. In addition, 3G and 4G telecom carriers are deploying such high speed Gigabit wireless links to meet the bandwidth requirements driven by consumers’ exponential use of Apple iPhone, iPad, Google Android, and other mobile computing devices. Since the Aire X-Stream Series of outdoor wireless bridges utilize an extremely narrow beam, they can be installed in dense urban areas such as major cities, where spectrum availability is near capacity or completely unavailable.”
