LightPointe Announces 'Five 9's for Five 9's' Promotion for HyBridge

July 06, 2012

Enterprises and 4G/LTE (News - Alert) telecom carriers looking for an affordable outdoor wireless bridge solution for applications like point-to-point building connectivity, 4G/LTE small cell backhaul and security camera backhaul, can now rely on LightPointe’s HyBridge SXR-5 wireless bridge, as the company has started a new promotion for July.

LightPointe Communications, Inc. is a manufacturer of wireless bridges. The company’s new promotion, called as "Five 9's for Five 9's," offers HyBridge SXR-5 wireless bridge at $9,999.90.

According to the company, the promotion is called "Five 9's for Five 9's" since the HyBridge outdoor wireless bridge is a Gigabit Ethernet link capable of providing 99.999 percent (five nines) link availability and is specially priced at $9,999.90 MSRP this month.

Available through the LightPointe network of authorized channel partners and through the company's AirePointe Security and Government Solutions Division partners, the HyBridge SXR-5 is a wireless bridge solution providing high-speed, full-duplex Gigabit wireless connectivity for highly secure, reliable transmission up to 1,100 meters at 3 dB/km or 850 meters at 17 dB/km.

Built on exclusive patented DualPath architecture, the HyBridge SXR-5 can provide up to 99.999 percent network availability, even in dense fog and heavy snow. It offers enhanced link distances as well, through the use of optical wireless and RF technologies.

The Maximized Distance DualPath feature enables longer distances due to rate adaptive use of multiple bands.

"Our ‘Five 9's for Five 9's’ promotion this month enables our valued distributors and resellers to stock up on the HyBridge for just $9,999.90, which is thousands less than competing alternative links which utilize only radio frequency or FSO transmission,” said John Taylor, VP of sales for LightPointe.

“The design of HyBridge wireless bridges goes beyond traditional outdoor radios by employing a patented combination of fourth generation 850 nm wavelength Free Space Optics 'green technology' and RF technology,” Taylor added.

Apart from integrated free space optics and radio, the HyBridge SXR-5 also features SNMPV1/2c support and alarm reports via SNMP traps, as well as a standard 1000 RJ 45 (copper) data interface with optional SFP 1000Base, along with a SX/LX (fiber) data interface.

According to LightPointe, the HyBridge SXR-5 includes high-precision German optical lenses and a radio that utilizes flexible 5.4/5.8 GHz frequencies for widespread unlicensed usage, and worldwide license-free optical free space spectrum.

The HyBridge SXR-5 also features RF technology via both OFDM and 4 antenna/2x2 MIMO technology, for higher data rates and lower interference in congested areas.

“In more than 99 percent of operating conditions the bridges rely on advanced laser transmission, which is faster than fiber, highly secure, license free and immune to RF interference and congestion issues,” Taylor finished. “The switching is completely transparent and automatic, and provides a built-in backup for the link, giving IT managers and network planners the added peace of mind of constant failsafe connectivity.”

In recent news, LightPointe announced a new division, AirePointe, to serve the security, military and government sectors. The company's first quarter results were also up over 20 percent over the same period last year, primarily due to the newly launched AireBeam Series.
