LightPointe Adds to Its AireLink 80 GHz Series of Millimeter Wave Solutions, Creating the Industry’s Broadest Line of Multi-Gigabit Wireless Bridge Solutions

New York, NY, April 25, 2017 –(PR.com)– LightPointe, a leading manufacturer of millimeter wave point-to-point radios and laser bridges used for ultra high capacity building-to-building data network connectivity, security camera backhaul, and wireless backhaul for service providers has added two new radio configurations to its 80 GHz radio portfolio. The AireLink 80 Series now includes four radio configurations with antennas ranging from a small and attractive 8 inch model, for deployment in ETSI countries in Europe, to a large 3 foot system capable of transmitting over 12 miles, depending on geographic location and availability requirements. Such point-to-point radios are deployed by businesses, 4G and 5G telecom carriers, and other organizations to transmit massive streams of data between buildings or towers, thus avoiding the installation and recurring costs of trenching for fiber.

“LightPointe’s AireLink 80 Series of wireless millimeter wave radios is designed for enterprise building-to-building/campus connectivity, ISPs, security camera backhaul networks, and mobile wireless service providers seeking fiber-like multi-gigabit backhaul capacity,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe and recognized as one of the ‘Forty innovators building the foundation of the next-gen electronics industry’ by EE Times. “Our affordable and state-of-the-art backhaul radios can be equipped with four high gain parabolic antennas of different sizes for shorter and longer distance applications. In addition, AireLink radios are available with built-in Bluetooth street-level remote link and performance monitoring, a unique smartphone enabled LightPointe feature which aids in installation, mapping, and ongoing monitoring.”

With up to ‘5 nines’ availability, which means less downtime than 5.26 minutes a year, millimeter wave Wireless Fiber systems are now the preferred method for connecting buildings and cell towers. Aside from being lower cost than trenching or leasing fiber, LightPointe’s AireLink Series enables organizations to own their own private network and help protect sensitive employee and customer data from eavesdropping and cyber security issues, which is obviously a huge challenge and potential liability in today’s world.

“In addition, by using LightPointe’s Dual Pole Adapter, customers can easily double the bandwidth by adding another AireLink 80 radio to an existing radio installation and double the bandwidth and throughput,” continued Dr. Willebrand. “Most importantly, our goal with the AireLink 80 Series was to create a ‘future-proof’ solution which can grow with the demands of the customer’s network via innovative and flexible software license upgrades. This makes the AireLink 80 Series a safe, long term investment, which also provides a fast ROI compared to alternative radios or fiber.”

AireLink Series radios are manufactured in San Diego, California at LightPointe’s Advanced Design and Production Facility. LightPointe is dedicated to quality and is a certified ISO 9001:2008 company with sales and technical support located worldwide.

Firefly Wireless Networks Showcases Its Visible Light Communications LiFi Products, with Data Rates Up to 1.8 Gbps, at Hannover Messe Tradeshow

Hannover, Germany, April 25, 2017 –(PR.com)– Firefly Wireless Networks, a leading manufacturer of Visible Light Communications (VLC) and LiFi products, announced that it is demonstrating its LiFi products at the Hannover Messe technology tradeshow this week. Firefly is displaying its second generation SecureLink LiFi access points and client units, which are the fastest and most advanced Visible Light Communications products available in the industry at up to 1.8 Gbps. LiFi utilizes light to transmit data more securely and faster than traditional WiFi radio frequency solutions, while also avoiding RF interference and congestion issues associated with WiFi. Protecting the sensitive information and network access of an organization has never been more important, with cyber security breaches and information theft being reported almost daily. The most vulnerable aspect of a network is its wireless transmissions.

“We are excited to unveil our 2nd generation SecureLink system at the Hannover Messe tradeshow,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of Firefly Wireless Networks. “Visible Light Communications solutions are the hottest new data communications technology due to a myriad of advantages resulting from the use of light spectrum over radio frequency spectrum. Traditional WiFi systems are prone to eavesdropping within and outside an organization’s building. It is also susceptible to radio frequency interference and congestion, as RF spectrum use has become crowded and has created bottlenecks within networks. Firefly Wireless Networks has solved these challenges with the world’s highest performance VLC solutions, offering the fastest data rates in the industry at up to 1.8 Gigabits per second, which far exceeds all WiFi technologies. And, compared to competing solutions, SecureLink is small, aesthetically attractive, and easy to install.”

Firefly Wireless Networks has already developed and tested its SecureLink solutions for conference room and office environments requiring the absolute best security and avoidance of eavesdropping. The company is also developing partner relationships in other industry sectors such as building technology providers, factory automation (Industry 4.0 and cyber-physical systems), consumer electronics, the Internet of Things, in-flight aircraft communications systems, military and underwater solutions, and transportation related applications such as train stations and automobile communications, which the company holds key patents on.
