Increase in Quality and Manufacturing Capabilities, and Exponential Surge in Demand for Wireless Bridges, Lead Company to Record Breaking Revenues

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 19, 2013) -  LightPointe Wireless, the number one manufacturer of all-weather hybrid outdoor wireless bridges and a leader in 60 and 70/80 GHz Ultra Low Latency backhaul solutions, has been accepted into the Made in California Program. The program is managed by California Manufacturing Technology Consulting (CMTC), which is affiliated with the National Institute of Standards and Technology's (NIST) Hollings Manufacturing Extension Partnership (MEP). CMTC works closely with manufacturers to help them compete at a higher level. LightPointe, which moved production of its products into facilities in San Diego's Sorrento Valley, manufactures point-to-point outdoor wireless bridges used by telecom carriers, businesses, schools, government agencies, and other organizations to transmit data or digital video at up to 2.5 Gbps. The need for handling huge amounts of data recently led LightPointe to record breaking revenues.

"By manufacturing our wireless bridges in California, we ensure that our engineers and operations personnel can monitor production lines and make immediate improvements to quality and product features almost in real-time," said Brian Schick, director of operations for LightPointe. "Our engineers and technical support personnel are in the same building as the production line, which provides LightPointe with a competitive advantage and helps us adhere to ISO-9001 requirements. The end result is highly reliable products and satisfied customers. In fact, our product quality and confidence in our manufacturing team prompted us to increase the warranty on our products to an industry-leading two years."

LightPointe, which was founded in 1998, manufactures Gigabit capacity 60 and 70/80 GHz Ultra Low Latency backhaul solutions, 4th generation Free Space Optics bridges (lasers), and hybrid wireless bridges in San Diego. The company's wireless links provide faster-than-fiber connections for mobile network infrastructure, such as 4G/LTE small cell backhaul solutions, and for private networks (e.g., High Frequency Trading, secure building-to-building connections, military communications, school campus settings, data center connectivity, IT cloud infrastructure). Most of LightPointe's products are license free and immune to RF interference and spectrum congestion. In addition, the signal transmissions are highly secure, making eavesdropping virtually impossible.
