BOSTON -- Orthogon Systems, a leading provider of fixed wireless solutions for reliable connectivity in difficult environments, today announced the launch of OS-Spectra Lite, a secure point-to-point wireless Ethernet bridge that delivers the same reliable, carrier-grade connectivity and high performance as the OS-Spectra at a lower entry-level price. Capable of connecting separate networks for up to 125 miles with performance of up to 150 Mbps aggregate user throughput and fully WiMAX compatible, the OS-Spectra Lite has been specifically designed to address the high-bandwidth networking requirements of both telecommunications backhaul as well as applications for large enterprises, including those used in healthcare, education and government industries.

Orthogon Systems also announced today the availability of its OS-Spectra 58200 software release, now available for download. With this new software release, OS-Spectra Lite customers will be able to activate a single T1/E1 port, bridging both switched-circuit and Ethernet traffic over a single wireless connection. Furthermore, the addition of the T1/E1 port activation enables enterprises to eliminate recurring monthly costs from leased lines.

The 58200 software release also provides customers with bandwidth allocation on demand. With this capability, the OS-Spectra system intelligently detects when more bandwidth is needed in order to transport large files, such as those affiliated with video. Instead of the usual 50/50 split for upstream and downstream traffic, the system allocates a greater amount of bandwidth on-the-fly to move large amounts of data, making the wireless network more efficient around the clock. And this process is done automatically, eliminating the need for any manual input.

"We're experiencing a marked increase in customer applications requiring high-capacity backhaul that also provides five 9's of reliability," said Kevin Leibl, president, Advanced Network Systems, an Orthogon Systems Preferred Partner and full-service communications integrator based in Charlottesville, Va. "The availability of OS-Spectra Lite enables us to deliver a more cost-effective solution that effectively handles demanding backhaul loads with carrier-class reliability. Even at the lower price point, the performance remains the same."
