Wadsworth to distribute LightPointe overground outdoor wireless solutions

October 17, 2007 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology News
London, 17th October 2007: Wadsworth, one of the UK’s leading distributors of networking and cabling products, has today announced that it will again be distributing outdoor wireless solutions from LightPointe Inc (www.lightpointe.com). Following the company restructure, LightPointe has redesigned its next generation products FlightLite and FlightStrata to increase performance and reduce unit costs.

LightPointe’s outdoor wireless solutions and customer installations connect two or more buildings in classic LAN-to-LAN backbone configuration with high-bandwidth throughput up to 1.25Gbps. Buildings are linked using beams of light as the primary data path, making LightPointe’s wireless solutions powerful yet simple to install.

FlightLite and FlightStrata are quicker, easier and less disruptive to install than traditional network cabling. Wireless networks can link buildings above ground, without the need for site planning as cable does not need to be laid underground making them the ideal solution for campus, flexible or temporary sites. Whilst significantly cheaper than leased lines, interception of optical wireless transmissions is virtually impossible making the wireless networks completely secure.

Paul Miller, Marketing Manager at Wadsworth, says:

“Wadsworth is pleased to welcome LightPointe back into its range of products. By easily linking buildings above ground, LightPointe’s products can be of enormous benefit to UK installers who can glean premium profits thanks to underground cabling being rendered unnecessary.”

UK installers are invited to contact Paul Miller at Wadsworth on 0844 844 2000 to train as an authorised LightPointe installer.
