San Diego, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2009
LightPointe Communications, Inc., a designer and the worldwide leading supplier of free space optical (FSO) communications solutions announced that they are celebrating their 10 Year Anniversary. LightPointe was established in December 1998 by founder Dr. Heinz Willebrand in Boulder Colorado. Two years later he moved the headquarters to San Diego CA. Dr. Willebrand recently rejoined LightPointe last month with the merger of Rayawave, Inc., an innovator of outdoor gigabit wireless millimeter-wave (MMW) point to point radio solutions that he co-founded in 2006. Both companies provide networking of the growing market segment of gigabit wireless outdoor bridging solutions for enterprise campus networks, metropolitan area access, and high capacity backhaul for next generation mobile wireless LTE and WIMAX networks.
"Over the past 10 years, LightPointe has shipped more than 5000 high capacity wireless bridges in over 60 countries including our first GigE wireless bridge in 2001," says Heinz Willebrand. Heinz went on to add, "Like many other companies operating in the communication sector we had our ups and downs over the last 10 years. However, and unlike many other companies we have survived many storms and with our current unique products portfolio, and a great team of highly motivated and dedicated employees, we are extremely well positioned for future success in the point to point wireless bridging market."
"The recently announced LightPointe/Rayawave merger lays the foundation for future growth of the company. By combining our field proven FSO and MMW products we created the most unique high capacity wireless bridge product offering in the industry," says Heinz Willebrand. "We are now in a position to provide our customers with solutions to their wireless bridging problems that will satisfy most deployment requirements worldwide. Additionally, LightPointe can address aspects of pricing suitability for the local application, distance, availability, and regulatory restrictions. In parallel we are working on the further integration of both products lines and by using technology that is covered by our unique patent portfolio we will create the world's first "Unified Wireless Transport™" solution. This is an exciting chapter in the LightPointe company history and we are looking forward to working closely with our existing and expanding customer base."
