LightPointe Announces Aire X-Stream Series
By Rahul Arora
LightPointe, a manufacturer of point-to-point Gigabit capacity FSO wireless bridges, recently announced the Aire X-Stream Series, a new line of ultra-fast, extreme low latency point-to-point radios and Free Space Optics wireless bridges.
Aire X-Stream Series operates at less than 10 nanoseconds latency, and up to 2.5 Gbps full duplex. It is ideal for time/speed sensitive applications such as high-frequency trading (HFT) and real-time military applications.
Aire X-Stream Series includes radio frequency and optical wireless bridges designed from the ground up for ultra-low latency Gigabit Ethernet transmission.
These state-of-the-art backhaul solutions can be utilized to easily establish point-to-point connectivity between buildings and/or towers in high-speed Ethernet networks, including HFT applications and time-sensitive and real-time military or homeland security applications.
With equipment/terminal latency less than 10 nanoseconds and full duplex layer 1 transmission transparency, the class-leading Aire X-Stream Series is perfect for organizations requiring the ultimate in extreme speed and low latency – even faster than optical fiber.
"Our new Aire X-Stream Series offers the lowest latency solutions in the industry, hundreds of times faster than competing solutions offered by other radio vendors," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, president and CEO at LightPointe and former chief technology officer since the company's inception in 1998.
“Increasingly,” he said, “our customers are demanding the absolute minimum delay possible in transmitting their data from point A to point B, whether they are a service provider looking at ultra-low latency and transparent Sync-E, IEEE (News - Alert) 1588 Ethernet clock distribution support, or a company involved in High Frequency Trading of stocks."
In related news, LightPointe recently deployed its outdoor wireless bridges in various locations in Australia. The bridges are helping the Australian Department of Broadband, Communications and the Digital Economy to have all Australians realize the full potential of broadband connectivity via the National Broadband Network (News - Alert).
