New LightPointe hybrid Optical-RF Wireless Laser Link

HyBridge™ Series provides GigE throughput, optimum security and carrier class uptime

SAN DIEGO (August 25, 2011) – LightPointe, the leading manufacturer of optical wireless bridges and millimeter wave backhaul solutions, announced new patented hybrid point-to-point products which integrate next generation free space optics and radio technology to provide up to 99.999% availability, under all weather conditions. The first two solutions in the HyBridge™ Series are the SX and SXR-5. Carriers and enterprises can add the SX to existing RF links to increase bandwidth while protecting their legacy investment, or select the radio of their choice. For a complete turn-key solution, the SXR-5 includes a radio and antenna. Both systems offer LightPointe’s exclusive Maximized DualPath™ feature for longer distances.
“The HyBridge Series utilizes patented DualPath™ technology, which automatically switches between optical wireless and radio transmission for the highest level of system availability,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, LightPointe’s CEO. “This exclusive technology provides a quantum leap in link performance, enabling customers to obtain the low latency, Gigabit Ethernet throughput, enhanced security and license-free advantages of optical transmission in conjunction with a robust, cost-effective radio. The system operates at full throttle and the highest efficiency of any wireless platform in the industry via optical transmission. And when needed, DualPath switches to the radio, where our adaptive rate technology achieves the highest performance possible, even in fog.”
The HyBridge SX and SXR-5 are available now for around US$10,000, and are currently installed in North America and Europe.
“Both systems provide advanced features including POE, flexible network interfaces, web management and SNMP support,” said John Taylor, vice president of sales and marketing for LightPointe. “Whether connecting buildings in a large business, hospital or school campus setting, or deploying backhaul solutions in 4G/LTE Picocell infrastructure, these bridges provide cost-effective Gigabit connectivity and industry-leading ROI.”
