BRYAN/COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Dominion Lasercom, Inc., (Dominion) a developer and manufacturer of carrier and enterprise level free-space optical equipment, today announced that the United States Patent & Trademark office has issued the company a patent on its innovative fiber coupled free-space optical networking technology. This patent, the second for the company, is a continuation to its first pioneering point-to-multipoint patent that issued in July 1998. Dominion's invention, U.S. Patent No. 6,348,986, allows for the cost effective deployment of high bandwidth free-space optic technology without the need for installing mailbox or satellite dish sized equipment, eliminating the need and expense of an electric utility connection to the roof. This breakthrough fiber-coupled technology has already been implemented into Dominion's DAViD(R) (Digital Audio Video infrared Data) product line and has enabled the company to become the market's price leader in free-space optic hardware and installations. Dominion's DAViD(R) products give enterprises and service providers the ability to deploy free-space optics to enhance their fiber infrastructure in metropolitan networks. Whether by creating wireless backhauls, LAN-to-LAN connections or providing services to the last mile, the patented technology truly paves the way to bring free-space optics to the masses. The company's Founders David Panak, Ph.D. and Mark Doucet, who are credited with inventing and patenting the first point-to-multipoint free-space optic network system in the industry, filed for their fiber coupled system patent in June 1998 after four years of research. Their continued development and breakthroughs have made Dominion the leading intellectual property holder in the free-space optic industry with five other patents pending. Dominion LaserCom Inc.
