LightPointe AireBeam 70/80 GHz Series

The G80-MX Medium Range and G80-LX Long Range Bridges 
(70/80 GHz Point-to-Point Backhaul Solutions)

Whether you are connecting two buildings or a complete city, LightPointe’s new 70/80 GHz backhaul solutions are ideal for carrier grade Gigabit Ethernet transmission. The AireBeam Series was designed from the ground up to support today’s bandwidth intensive networks for businesses and mobile networks facing exponential demand due to the growth of smart phones, tablets and video streaming.

These radios combine quality German hardware engineering with U.S. manufacturing efficiency and software excellence and are made in LightPointe's new San Diego, CA facility. Both the Medium Range and Long Range systems are shipping now after completing one of the most intensive Research and Development programs and sequence of refinement and testing procedures in our history. The result is a 4G/LTE ready Gigabit Ethernet bridge with the industry's lowest power consumption, low latency, innovative features, low weight and ultra high gain antennas.
