APRIL 15, 2009 -- LightPointe has debuted the newly redesigned FlightLite G free-space optics (FSO) system, designed to combine low cost-per-bit transport, high transmission security, and SNMP management capabilities within a compact, easy to install, and fully outdoor-rated unit.
The FlightLite G is based on the design of LightPointe's FlightLite product line. 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 for voice, video, and data applications.
According to John Taylor, LightPointe vice president of sales, "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.
