AUSTIN, TEXAS -- (October 3, 2012): LightPointe, the number one manufacturer of point-to-point Gigabit capacity FSO wireless bridges, and Pulse Supply, a Value Added Distributor, are exhibiting the latest generation of optical wireless bridges at the ITEXPO show in Austin, Texas. Pulse Supply, one of LightPointe’s premier distributors in the U.S., is presenting the AireStrata G Free Space Optics wireless bridge, which is the industry’s only 4-laser system with auto-tracking, thus providing reliable and secure Gigabit Ethernet data transmission over long distances and without the radio frequency congestion and interference issues associated with competing wireless bridges.
“The ITEXPO show has gained a wide following and we are excited to present the latest in wireless point-to-point data transmission technologies with our partner LightPointe,” said Michael Banschbach, vice president of Pulse Supply. “Our enterprise and carrier customers have had excellent results with LightPointe installations, which provide rapid and cost effective deployment of Gigabit Ethernet capacity connectivity between buildings. The AireStrata G has been especially well-received, due to technological advantages over other optical bridges, including the use of 850 nanometer laser technology, which provides superior performance and reliability over first generation 1550 nanometer laser systems. The AireStrata G also includes highly precise German lenses, and each side of the all-outdoor AireStrata G wireless link operates with 4 transmission beams/lenses and 4 receive beams/lenses. This provides redundancy and unparalleled network uptime for our valued customers. In addition to the GigE capacity and low latency advantages of the AireStrata G, our customers appreciate the ability to own their own network rather than pay for expensive leased lines every month. And since the AireStrata G is PoE-powered and license-free worldwide, installation is fast and there are no regulatory delays and annual licensing costs.”
LightPointe, which is headquartered in San Diego, California, is the only manufacturer in the world producing all three of the leading wireless bridge technologies, including Free Space Optics bridges, 60/70/80 GHz backhaul solutions and industry-exclusive and patented hybrid optical-radios, which combine the advantages of laser transmission with RF backup for up to 99.999% reliability. The company’s point-to-point solutions are designed for enterprise building connectivity and for 4G/LTE carriers in their small cell backhaul infrastructure.
“Pulse Supply is one of our leading value added distributors in the United States and is renowned for their excellent customer support and technical know-how,” said John Taylor, vice president of sales for LightPointe. “Pulse Supply stands out in the VAR field because they offer a balanced portfolio of best of breed technologies and can custom tailor solutions depending on the customer’s specific needs, whether that customer is a telco carrier, service provider or reseller providing a wireless bridge to their end-user. The breadth Pulse’s product offering is also a key to their success and includes products that enable operation over legacy TDM networks such as xDSL, fiber, E1, T1, SONET, SDH, OC-3 and STM-1.
