LightPointe Wireless Expands In Europe

San Diego-based LightPointe Wireless, a developer free-space optical networking equipment, said Tuesday that it has expanded in Europe, and opened up a new office in France. The firm said it has hired Patrick Cardon as Director of Sales for Southern Europe as part of the expansion. Cardon was previously at MRV Communications. LightPointe is owned by Berg & Berg Enterprises, which acquired the company in 2006. LightPointe had originally been venture backed, and was acquired after a Chaper 11 bankruptcy back in 2006.
