|Wireless optical solution significantly reduces hardware requirements and
Tel Aviv, Israel – May 27, 2015 – RiT Technologies (NASDAQ: RITT), a leading provider of IIM and structured cabling solutions and a developer of an innovative indoor optical wireless technology solution, announced today the launch of Beamcaster 2.0, a wireless optical network with a new system design significantly lowering the total solution cost per user. By increasing the number of users that are supported by each smart outlet (SO) from one to six, enabling each system to support 48 users, high density open space environments can experience secure, high bandwidth communications networks with significantly lower costs and faster deployments. One large telecommunications provider in Asia estimates that this new design results in an installation time of 1-2 days compared with several weeks to install a comparable secure and high bandwidth wireline network.
Beamcaster 2.0 is designed for environements that require secure communications, high bandwidth with low latency, and scalability to support rapid growth. The solution provides point-to-multipoint wireless optical communications with speeds of up to 1Gbps for each SO. Beamcaster 2.0’s optical transmissions are highly secure and difficult to hack or intercept. In addition, Beamcaster 2.0 is easy to install and can adjust easily to physical layout changes and employee moves.
The previous version, Beamcaster 1.0 is currently deployed at several sites in North America and Asia, with the latest successful deployment in China for a leading IT company. A telecom operator in APAC has expressed interest in using Beamcaster 2.0 to provide connectivity as a service where the savings from this new technology can be passed down to their customers. Several consumer product manufacturers showed interest in using this technology to avoid leakage of confidential product information and intellectual property that can occur using standard wireless networks.
“Asia has unique working conditions that can benefit from solutions that support high density environments”, said Ron Kamini, Head of Products Management at RiT. “More and more companies in this region need to share large files securely at high speeds and this technology provides them with more economical and flexible connectivity that grows with them.”
RiT’s wireless optical solution Beamcaster 2.0 will be demonstrated next week at CommunicAsia, June 2 – June 5, at Marina Bay Sands Singapore, at Booth BA3-12. Beamcaster 2.0 will be commercially available in Q4 2015. RiT will also have on display a robot that can share high volumes of production data securely while in motion, using RiT's innovative wireless optical technology.
