LightPointe's 2014 Sales of Outdoor Wireless Bridges See Dramatic Growth, Driven by the Industry's Highest Powered, Lowest Latency Backhaul Radios and New Products

Company Releases Free White Paper Titled Ultra Low Latency Point-to-Point Wireless Networks

SAN DIEGO, CA and CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Jun 5, 2014) -  The Trading Show -- LightPointe, the leading manufacturer of Gigabit capacity outdoor point-to-point data bridges, announced that the company's 2014 revenues are significantly up over the same period last year due to customer adoption of its new AireBridge™ Series and its Aire X-Stream™ Series of Ultra Low Latency wireless bridges. LightPointe develops wireless bridges which utilize all three of the leading data transmission technologies -- Free Space Optics lasers, 60 and 70/80 GHz millimeter wave radios, and industry-exclusive hybrid wireless bridges which combine lasers and RF technology for unparalleled speed and reliability. The announcement was made during The Trading Show held in Chicago June 4th and 5th, an event focused on automated trading, stock exchange technology, big data infrastructure, quantitative ("quant") trading, high performance computing (HPC), and acceleration technologies. LightPointe's wireless bridges -- which are capable of up to 10 Gbps of aggregated link capacity -- are being deployed in the world's fastest and most demanding networks such as High Frequency Trading applications where they are replacing fiber lines and wireless microwave circuits as slow as 10 to 100 Mbps.

"Companies, especially financially oriented trading firms and stock exchanges, are experiencing the advantages of ultra-fast data communications via the deployment of millimeter wave and FSO wireless bridges," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe, and recognized by EE Times as one of the Forty innovators building the foundation of the next-gen electronics industry. "LightPointe and its highly experienced system integrators and service providers are deploying the highest powered, lowest latency data networks in the world. At a time when competing transmission technologies measure latency in tens or even hundreds of microseconds, LightPointe's systems are measured in nanoseconds. In fact no other data transmission technology -- such as fiber or competing wireless bridges -- is faster or lower in latency than our Aire X-Stream Series. This translates into tangible advantages for our customers." 

LightPointe Free Space Optics laser bridges and e-band backhaul radios are increasingly being deployed by service providers, financial institutions, school campuses, businesses, hospitals, and 4G/mobile telecommunications carriers to meet the massive demand for data bandwidth, and to replace slower fiber connections and leased lines.
