Orthogon Systems has added a value version to its OS-Gemini line of broadband wireless solutions. The OS-Gemini Lite is a broadband wireless Ethernet bridge that provides the same functionality as OS Gemini, but at lower cost and with an end user Ethernet data rate of up to 21Mbytes/s. The company has also announced the OS-Gemini 5840 software release, a free upgrade to Orthogon’s flagship product, the OS Gemini. Available via Web download, the 5840 increases the product’s throughput from 34Mbytes/s to 43Mbytes/s end-user Ethernet data rate. “With the availability of the 5840 software release and the new Lite platform, the OS-Gemini product line is able to address a much broader range of customer requirements for highly reliable point-to-point connectivity,” says Graham Owen, sales and channel director, MEA at Orthogon Systems. “While the 5840 addresses a customer’s demand for more throughput, the OS-Gemini Lite addresses another customer’s demand for an entry level platform with less throughput and at a lower price point further illustrating our commitment to the MEA region, providing lower cost solutions at reduced speeds but still maintaining reliability and spectral efficiency,” he adds. Orthogon says the OS-Gemini Lite delivers up to 21Mbytes/s of throughput and maintains exceptional link availability, up to 99.9999%, even in Non-Line-of-Sight environments and in areas with high levels of signal interference. The platform is FCC certified, operates in the unlicensed 5.8GHz ISM band and the vendors claims it provides a cost-effective platform for Wireless ISPs to backhaul subscriber traffic, and for enterprise markets connecting multiple disparate networks. The OS-Gemini Lite is available through Orthogon’s network of authorised distributors and reseller channels. The 5840 software release is available via download at www.orthogonsystems.com. Both products will be available in the Middle East and Africa region from July 1, 2005.
