Re-Designed FlightLite™ G product offers full duplex Gigabit Ethernet wireless bridge connectivity for under US$10,000

LightPointe, a leading designer and manufacturer of ultra high-speed outdoor wireless, point-to-point network bridging solutions, introduces a new addition to its free-space optics product line. The newly re-designed FlightLite™ G combines low cost-per-bit transport, high transmission security, and SNMP management capabilities all within a compact, easy to install, and fully outdoor-rated unit.

The FlightLite™ G is based on the design of LightPointe's highly successful and very popular FlightLite™ product line, which is deployed in more than 60 countries and is the best-selling enterprise FSO product on the market. The product targets the shorter distance, high capacity wireless, point-to-point bridging market segment by providing full-duplex 1.25 Gbps Gigabit Ethernet connectivity. Like all Optical Wireless bridges the system is built around fiber-like system latency, making it ideal for voice, video, and data applications.

John Taylor, LightPointe Vice President of Sales says that "In these economically challenging times we hear more and more from customers how they need to interconnect buildings with a reliable wireless bridge that offers the bandwidth of fiber, but does not cost an arm and a leg. They don't want to spend over $10,000 for a short distance Gigabit wireless bridge. The FlightLite™ G solution provides instant connectivity between campus buildings, and a compelling economic value proposition with a return on investment of less than 6 months when compared to a high capacity leased fiber or other GigE wireless bridge solutions designed for longer distance shots. We strongly believe that the FlightLite™ G is the right product at the right price at the right time."

The new FlightLite G™ system adheres to internationally recognized laser class 1M eye-safety regulations and the system can be deployed anywhere in the world due to the license free nature of the optical transmission spectrum.
