    Geophysical & Scientific
    The geophysical and scientific industry is driven by high technology applications. These sophisticated technologies bring immersive or semi-immersive environments to the forefront, allowing the worlds of physics, geography, chemistry, and biosciences to learn and explore in a new way. Lightwave Communications is dedicated to providing state-of-the-art switching and fiber optic solutions for these applications. As this industry pushes the boundaries ­ Lightwave is there to meet and exceed them.

    Command and Control

    Real-time display of high resolution graphics and text is a key aspect of many different types of control centers, ranging from network control systems and automated factories, to power generating stations and air traffic control systems. Frequently, it is desirable to have the processor and the user consoles in separate locations. Lightwave's switches and VDE/200 can be installed between controlled-environment equipment rooms and on-line user stations, eliminating the need for elaborate packaging and cooling systems in the console. Plus, standby and remote control rooms can be easily added without duplication of processor hardware. Control rooms are now optimized for users, and processing equipment can be kept in a separate controlled environment.

    Conference & Presentation

    As conference and presentation requirements expand system and network administrators are continually faced with performance and technical issues. Questions arise such as how can I access graphics on a server in a different location? Video degradation is plaguing me, how can I get high resolution? Lightwave's customers require switching and extension solutions that can answer these questions. With the introduction of products like the Matrix-Hub and VDE/200 resources can be tapped from various locations and sacrificing video quality becomes a thing of the past.

    Financial and Trading Floor

    It's no surprise that many financial organizations rely on Lightwave solutions for control, consolidation and contingency. Accurate market data is essential to the operation of modern brokerage trading floors. To achieve this, a complex web of hardware and software is required to analyze and filter information from a variety of real-time news and information sources. To provide maximum performance, a network of high performance servers and processors is required. In many cases, users decide to locate all of the processors in a single room, to allow close coupling of related systems and to simplify maintenance and software updates. The space these systems occupy becomes valuable real estate in a highly cluttered environment.

    Lightwave solutions provides a simple, real-time connection, eliminating the need for processing and networking equipment at each user's desk. This allows for a seamless integrated user interface with outstanding ergonomics. In addition, Lightwave's ServerSwitch and VDE/200 eliminate unneeded peripherals in the server room, freeing up that valuable real estate for future use.

    Entertainment, Animation, and Post Production

    The entertainment industry is growing exponentially with the introduction of cutting edge technology that suspends audience belief and far exceeds their expectations. The wide variety and staggering quantity of equipment needed to produce modern computer-assisted animation requires a networking scheme with great flexibility and excellent system maintainability. By centralizing all of the processing resources, system management is simplified, and processors can be allocated to projects on an as-needed basis. Lightwave's products provide a very flexible solution; efficient system management, optimal processor utilization, and users who are happy not to share offices with hot, noisy graphic supercomputers. Lightwave is also able to provide its customers with remarkable cost reductions in light of current market trends.

    Government and Secure Computing

    Government technology is a fast-paced, ever-changing environment, driven by new products and growing server rooms. The foundation of many worldwide government agencies (federal, military) is electronic technology. Besides keeping abreast of new technologies, system and network administrators are continually faced with maintaining the highest level of information integrity and security.

    One of the central thrusts of Lightwave Communications over the past years has been on the viability of fiber optic transmission systems. Fiber optics is a highly secure medium. Being that is does not radiate energy it cannot be received by a nearby antenna, which makes it extremely difficult to tap. Today thousands of government control rooms are using Lightwaves VDE/200 fiber optic extension kits for their mission critical computer/server requirements.

    Server Administration

    The role of the server/system administrator is growing increasingly complex. Computer configurations now require the need to mix different hardware and software platforms transparently. This leads to the exponential growth of server rooms and the need to work on multiple systems. In addition, the requirement for centralized control and consolidation is ever present in this environment. It is evident that the only salvation for server administration is the console switch.

    Lightwave understands that system administration has become an integral part of today's technology and now more than ever, the protection and continued precise operation of servers is essential to the functioning of even basic everyday services. Lightwave's console switches are commonly used in environments where this is mission critical, such as testing labs, departmental LANs, multiple-system desktops, server farms, and ISP and web hosting facilities to name a few. The ServerSwitch, PC ServerSwitch Plus, and SystemConsoleSwitch give system administrators the control, consolidation and contingency they require.

    Kiosks and Museums

    Kiosks and touchscreen kiosks are becoming more and more popular. In today's technologically advanced market place many companies are using kiosks to outshine their competition and increase sales. Harnessing multimedia using audio, video, animation and graphics, kiosks are beneficial, especially in point of sale/information applications.

    Lightwave solutions are currently implemented in various kiosk applications, specifically museums. Lightwave has successfully designed topologies for various museums that use numerous kiosks for educational purposes. Many of the museum kiosk applications were challenging due to space and distance requirements, and Lightwave responded with the only industry solution.
