LightPointe unveils patented hybrid point-to- point products which integrate next generation free space optics and radio technology, claiming to provide up to 99.999 per cent availability under all weather conditions. The first two solutions in the HyBridge Series are the SX and SXR-5.

According to the company, carriers and enterprises can add the SX to existing RF links to increase bandwidth while protecting their legacy investment, or select the radio of their choice. For a turn-key solution, the SXR-5 includes a radio and antenna. Both systems claim to offer LightPointe's exclusive Maximised DualPath feature for longer distances.

"The HyBridge series utilises patented DualPath technology, which automatically switches between optical wireless and radio transmission for the highest level of system availability," said Heinz Willebrand, LightPointe's CEO. "This exclusive technology provides a quantum leap in link performance, enabling customers to obtain the low latency, Gigabit Ethernet throughput, enhanced security and licence-free advantages of optical transmission in conjunction with a robust, cost-effective radio. The system operates at full throttle and the highest efficiency of any wireless platform in the industry via optical transmission. And when needed, DualPath switches to the radio, where our adaptive rate technology achieves the highest performance possible, even in fog and heavy snow."

"Both systems provide advanced features including POE, flexible network interfaces, web management and SNMP support," said John Taylor, VP of sales and marketing for LightPointe. "Whether connecting buildings in a large business, hospital or school campus setting, or deploying backhaul solutions in 4G/LTE Picocell infrastructure, these bridges provide cost-effective Gigabit connectivity and industry-leading ROI."

The HyBridge SX and SXR-5 are available now for around Rs.4.48 lakh ($10,000), and are currently installed in North America and Europe.
