Key Advantage for LightPointe Customers

In fact, our industry-leading HyBridge™ Series includes both Free Space Optics and radio technologies for up to 99.999% availability, even in heavy snow and fog. While LightPointe’s main competitors only offer one technology, LightPointe offers customers an unbiased choice of optical, radio frequency or hybrid technologies, all of which have particular advantages. LightPointe helps customers choose the best option for their particular installation and budget. And in cases where multiple technologies are deployed, LightPointe makes it easier for the customer to manage their network through one unified, easy-to-use management system. In addition to these customer advantages, LightPointe’s products offer the best return on investment available in the industry, and most products do not require licensing.
