Company Ally to Provide Free-Space Optics Products in China
Carrier-class optical transmission equipment provider LightPointe of San Diego will manufacture free-space optics products for the Chinese market under the Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. brand as a result of a partnership agreement between the companies. The alliance enables Huawei, a telecommunications equipment company based in Shenzhen, China, to provide a high-capacity connectivity option to its customers.
The free-space optics technology provides high-bandwidth connectivity through the air at a much lower cost than buried fiber optic cable, and is suitable where spectrum for microwave radios is unavailable or too expensive.
LightPointe's protocol-independent products integrate into optical fiber and mobile wireless networks and provide bandwidth from 10 Mb to 2.5 Gb for carrier and enterprise customers.
