Gigabit FSO Wireless Bridges Named a Top 10 Disruptive Technology by Defense Magazine, as Sales of LightPointe 60 GHz, 80 GHz, and FSO Solutions Shatter Records

Sales of point-to-point backhaul links break records for 1st, 2nd, and 4th quarters, leading to excellent 2014 for wireless solutions provider, LightPointe.

San Diego, CA, October 29, 2014 --( LightPointe, a leading manufacturer of Gigabit capacity outdoor point-to-point data bridges, announced that 2014 is already a record breaking year thanks to widespread adoption of its 60 GHz V-band and 80 GHz E-band millimeter wave radios, as well as the company’s new Free Space Optics bridges which feature advanced laser transmission that made the list for “Top 10 Disruptive Technologies” in the National Defense Magazine November, 2014 issue. The company’s wireless products are used by enterprises and government agencies to securely transmit data between buildings or telecom towers, and provide faster performance than fiber while being far less expensive to deploy.

“As 2014, our 16th year, winds to a close we are excited to report that it is already our best year in high capacity wireless bridge shipments,” said John Taylor, vice president of sales for LightPointe. “We want to thank our loyal customers for record breaking 1st, 2nd, and 4th quarters—and the year isn’t even over. Our new AireBridge Series, which are the world’s first software defined Free Space Optics bridges, were well received by enterprises such as hospitals, schools, government agencies, and businesses needing to connect two or more buildings wirelessly and cost effectively. In addition, we saw high demand for our Aire X-Stream Series, which includes the industry’s lowest latency millimeter wave radios for applications such as High Frequency Trading and other Ultra Low Latency high speed 4G and LTE networks. 2014 is the year that LightPointe became the go-to company for Ultra Low Latency and lightning fast wireless data transmission, providing customers the broadest choice of laser-based, radio frequency, and industry-patented hybrid links utilizing both technologies. No other manufacturer comes close to the performance and selection LightPointe provides—and all our products include an industry-leading two year warranty as well.”

LightPointe designs and manufactures both radio frequency and laser wireless bridges in its facility in San Diego, California, and is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company.
