LightPointe adds a remote monitoring tool to AireLink wireless radios

LightPoint is making its AireLink 60 GHz wireless point-to-point radios easier to monitor and more secure with the introduction of an app, called the AireLink Viewer, that lets installers remotely communicate with the radio via an integrated Bluetooth transceiver. Using this app, installers no longer have to climb a tower or rooftop to review and monitor the radio parameters. Instead, AireLink Viewer, which is encrypted and password protected, lets installers troubleshoot any issues from the ground.

"Being able to remotely monitor an outdoor radio link – while reducing the need to send technicians up to a rooftop, or having them climb a tower—is a huge performance, safety, and cost benefit to our customers and integrators," said Heinz Willebrand, CEO of LightPointe.

AireLink's 60 GHz wireless millimeter wave radios are used to transmit point-to-point via a narrow beam and are often used for building-to-building data connectivity and surveillance video backhaul for up to a mile.  Release
