LightPointe's #1 Selling Point to Point Backhaul Radio Gets Lower Price, Available AES Security, and a Free Android Tablet for Network Monitoring via Bluetooth

In Addition to Price Reduction, New Features Such as AES Encryption and Street-Level Radio Monitoring via Bluetooth Maintain LightPointe's Leadership in 60 GHz Wireless Bridges

SAN DIEGO CA--(Marketwired - January 19, 2016) - LightPointe Wireless, the leading manufacturer of outdoor wireless bridges for high capacity data backhaul and video transmission, announced a limited time promotion and a price reduction on its best-selling wireless bridge, the AireLink 60 radio. Now through February all AireLink 60 GHz point-to-point links come with a free tablet which can connect to the radios via Bluetooth, to aid in installation and performance monitoring and help avoid personnel from having to climb rooftops or towers to access the radios. In addition, due to higher volume and economies of scale, LightPointe has cost reduced the AireLink 60 and is passing the savings on to its customers, which makes the 60 GHz wireless bridge the lowest cost, highest performance solution on the market -- with a radio link head manufacturer's suggested retail price starting at US$3750, or approximately EUR3450 Euros.

"Thanks to excellent customer acceptance of the AireLink 60 GHz radios, higher sales volume has enabled our engineers to reduce component and manufacturing costs, and we are passing the savings on to our distributors, resellers, and end users," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe Wireless. "The AireLink 60 is now the most affordable and highest performance 60 GHz wireless bridge on the market, enabling organizations to connect buildings or towers up to a mile away and 'cut the cord' on their leased lines, which eliminates recurring monthly fees and can also keep sensitive data within a private network for greatly enhanced cyber security and protection from information theft and eavesdropping. We've also added features that are a leap beyond previous generation 60 GHz radios, such as the industry's first fully integrated street-level remote monitoring feature, and available AES 256 encryption for maximum signal security. And as a special promotion, each AireLink 60 wireless link includes a free Android tablet, which can aid in system installation and ongoing network monitoring. No other 60 GHz outdoor radio solution offers the price point and features of our AireLink Series. And best of all, they are license free throughout most of the world, so there's no government regulatory issues, such as installation or annual fees."
