SAN DIEGO, CA and DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES--(Marketwired - October 14, 2015) - GITEX tradeshow - October 14, 2015: LightPointe, the leading manufacturer of point to point wireless bridges for high capacity data backhaul and video transmission, announced that it will exhibit at the GITEX technology tradeshow held in Dubai, UAE, October 18 through 22 at the Dubai World Trade Centre. LightPointe's wireless bridges are used to connect buildings and towers with high capacity radios and Free Space Optics lasers. GITEX is the third largest IT show in the world and showcases the state of the art in information technology for education, healthcare, oil & gas, retail, banking, and finance industries. LightPointe's products are used in such sectors to connect LANs between buildings, transmit digital security video, connect data centers, and provide backhaul for telecom networks. LightPointe will be in booth ZL-F1 in Sabeel Hall with NSTT and 4N Telecom. In addition to outdoor wireless bridges, LightPointe and 4N Telecom will present a live demonstration of new Visual Light Communications (VLC) products which are emerging as a key technology in the burgeoning "Internet of Things" (IoT) revolution.

"LightPointe is excited to present our latest backhaul radios and Free Space Optics links at the GITEX show," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe. "Demand for wireless bridges in the Middle East has taken off recently, and is one reason our sales have increased dramatically the past year. We are happy to have our partner 4N Telecom on board, as their team understands the wireless infrastructure business in the Middle East. At the show, we will present, for the first time, a live demonstration of one of the hottest technologies emerging in the wireless industry, something our Chief Science Officer has been working on in our labs for a couple of years-extremely affordable Visual Light Communications indoor wireless bridges, which are more secure than WiFi and utilize light for transmitting data, rather than radio frequency spectrum. In addition, we will showcase our new AireLink 60 Series which is the highest performance radio available and features up to +55 dBm max EIRP, compared to competitors' 42 dBm. This provides higher reliability and longer distances, up to 1800 meters or about one mile."

"Having researched many of the manufacturers of high capacity wireless bridges, we are honored to be a premier distributor and support partner for LightPointe and we will present several of the company's solutions at the GITEX show, including the new AireLink 60 Series, which is the highest performance 60 GHz radio in the industry," said Hameed Al Yahibi, CEO of 4N Telecom. "Such radios are deployed by businesses, hospitals, school campuses, government agencies, and other enterprises to connect buildings wirelessly, and avoid trenching for fiber or paying for expensive leased lines each month. In addition, 60 GHz radios are utilized in 4G LTE networks for small cell and backhaul purposes, supporting mobile telecom networks."
