LightPointe Gets Win

San Diego-based LightPointe, a developer of high speed, free space optics wireless systems, said today it has scored a win at Aker Philadelphia Shipyard, a commercial shipbuilder. LightPointe will deploy its high speed wireless products to connect the firm's warehouse operations and corporate network. Aker is replacing a 802.11g RF bridge, which Aker said had issues due to low flying airplanes and radar interference from a nearby airport, and heavy fog. LightPointe develops free space optic networking systems, used to connect campus and buildings with Ethernet access.
