Ethernity Networks Successfully Completes Delivery of Its ACE-NIC100 for Major Korean OEM

Lod, Israel, January 18, 2019 –(– Ethernity Networks, a leading innovator of software-defined network processing and security solutions on programmable hardware, today announces it has successfully completed inaugural delivery of its 100Gbps ACE-NIC100 FPGA SmartNIC to a major Korean OEM.

The ACE-NIC100 will be incorporated into commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) servers that come with fewer CPU cores compared to regular data centre servers, resulting in significant power and cost reduction. The combination of the powerful ACE-NIC100 with edge-optimised COTS servers deliver a high-performance yet affordable and energy efficient platform, ideal for network edge virtualisation.

“Our Korean customer’s investment in building an edge solution based on our ACE-NIC100 shows recognition of Ethernity’s leadership as a provider of networking and security processing software and firmware technology in the field of FPGA SmartNICs,” said David Levi, CEO at Ethernity Networks. “This is further proof and support of our position that FPGA-based technologies are the ideal platform for data path networking acceleration.”

The contract between Ethernity and the Korean OEM specified the final delivery of a customized solution on FPGA, embedding Ethernity’s rich networking features including hierarchical QoS, flow classification, protocol offloading, and routing, with scheduled end-of-year acceptance by the customer.

Leveraging Ethernity’s successful experience with multiple customers of its first-generation ACE-NIC40 SmartNIC, the next-generation ACE-NIC100 is scheduled for further delivery this year to additional partners and OEMs. This is aligned with the Company’s strategy of transitioning from selling technology to offering complete products and solutions, which is expected to result in anticipated significant growth for the Company.

LightPointe Offers Breakthrough Price Point for High Capacity 10 Gbps Point-to-Point Radios Designed for Building Connectivity, 5G LTE, and Smart City Networks

San Diego, CA, January 16, 2019 –(– LightPointe, a manufacturer of Gigabit capacity outdoor point-to-point radios since 1998 used to connect buildings and towers, announced limited-time lower pricing on its AireLink 60 10Gig radios. The announcement came at the recent Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, Nevada. The AireLink 60 10Gig is LightPointe’s latest backhaul radio which uses the license-free 60 GHz frequency spectrum. It can be deployed in most countries without applying for regulatory licenses or paying annual spectrum fees, which not only saves money but also speeds the ability to deploy such solutions quickly. Such point-to-point radios can be used as a primary data transmission connection – instead of trenching for fiber and damaging infrastructure – or be deployed as a redundant or backup connection to keep networks operating when leased line and fiber services are down. The average cost of such network downtime is over $7,000 per minute, which means that an organization can justify and pay for a 60 GHz radio deployment by avoiding even one network downtime event.

Applications for 60 GHz license-free radios:

Fiber-like long distance building connectivity for schools, businesses, government buildings, and hospitals – without trenching/installing fiber or the recurring costs of leased-line alternatives.

5G LTE macro and small cell mobile backhaul.

Smart city networks.

WISP (Wireless Internet Service Providers) and ISPs (Internet Service Providers).

Disaster recovery and emergency communications restoration.

Digital video and security camera connectivity.

Remote storage access (data warehouses).

Local Area Network extension (wireless LAN).

Military theater of operations and base connectivity.

Benefits of 60 GHz license-free radios:

V-Band radios (60 GHz) deliver high-speed, low-latency, full-duplex wireless transmission license-free. Such radios can be less expensive and easier to deploy than licensed 70 GHz, 80 GHz, and 90 GHz V-Band radios.

Highly secure private network transmission to ensure data protection and prevent cyber security issues typical of internet/public networks.

Provides 100 MHz to 2 GHz channel bandwidth, advanced intelligence, and excellent Ethernet switching functionality.

Integrated low-latency forward error correction (< 50 μs) assures data transmission reliability.

Affordable (under US$10,000), providing the lowest cost per bit and excellent ROI.

About LightPointe:
LightPointe ( is a San Diego-based manufacturer of 60 GHz and 80 GHz backhaul radio solutions, which compete against brands such as Ubiquiti, Siklu, Bridgewave, Aviat, SIAE, and Ceragon in the enterprise and 5G LTE market.
