(Nuremberg / San Diego August 16 2011) LightPointe, a leading manufacturer of Free Space Optics (FSO) wireless bridges and 60/70/80 GHz millimeter wave backhaul solutions, announced the installation of its AireBeam Z60 system for Continental AG, one of the world's largest automotive parts suppliers.
The AireBeam Z60 point-to-point bridge operates in the license-free 59 to 63 GHz frequency range, which is widely available in the DACH region of Germany and many other countries. The solution has flexible LAN networking interfaces, an integrated web browser, and is easily integrated into an SNMP management environment. With 635 Mbps full duplex and low latency, the AireBeam Z60 is the most advanced device in its class.
Professional planning and installation of the system was performed by EDV-Beratung Schatz, a LightPointe partner. "The combination of excellent product features, low operating costs and the ease of installation provides an ideal solution for campus connectivity needs,” said Stephan Schatz, GM for EDV-Beratung Schatz, and continues, “The system operates flawlessly and has exceeded our expectations. We’re pleased to add Continental AG to our list of satisfied customer.”
“This installation exemplifies LightPointe’s ability to work well with channel partners in meeting their customers’ requirements,” said Michael Schulz, a director of sales for LightPointe. “Since the introduction of our AireBeam Z60 about 6 months ago our channel partners have installed multiple systems, and end-user response has been extremely positive.”
