LightPointe Introduces Six New 80 GHz Point to Point Backhaul Radios

LightPointe has added six new 80 GHz E-band frequency backhaul radios to the second generation of its Ultra Low Latency (ULL) Aire X-Stream Series. The Aire X-Stream Series is a high power, low latency 80 GHz wireless solution that is popular among networks requiring the absolute fast data transmission, such as High Speed Trading (HFT) networks, military and homeland security applications, and other time-sensitive data and video backhaul environments.

These new radios provide more power and are available in six configurations and three antenna options, including a new 3 foot Extra Long Range high gain antenna which covers even longer distances, enabling customers to connect buildings or towers up to ten miles apart. They can even be used to set up daisy-chain links back to back for faster-than-fiber transmission between cities or even states and countries. With low equipment latency the Aire X-Stream Series claims to be faster than even fiber, which is far more expensive to deploy and can involve years obtaining regulatory and city infrastructure trenching and repair permits.

LightPointe radios have a downtime of less than 5.26 minutes annually. The company has deployed over 20,000 wireless solutions since 1998. Its millimeter wave radios and Free Space Optics enable organizations - including businesses, hospitals, government agencies, and schools-to connect buildings wirelessly at 2.5 Gbps.
