Laser FSO Wireless Links

What is Free Space Optics?

The principles of transmission through free space optics (FSO) are the same as for the transmission of a signal through a fibre optic line. It is an optical data, voice and video transmission system using laser light to transmit digital signals between two transceivers through the air, instead of through a fibre glass strand.

Why consider FSO Laser Links?

  • Up to 10Gbps throughput
  • Full Duplex operation
  • Major cost savings over other wireless technology and leased lines
  • Licence free operation
  • Very secure data transmission

When are laser links mostly used?

  • Organisations looking to create a LAN across multiple buildings on the same site
  • Organisations looking to reduce the cost of existing leased lines
  • In very secure environment's such as military establishments
  • Emergency link back up for microwave links
  • In organisations that require an high throughput of data up to 10Gbps
  • In high density areas where FSO is always RF interference free
  • Budget constrained projects

When to consider opting for microwave over laser?

  • Areas suffering from severe fog and rain
  • Moving buildings
  • Pole mounting fixtures
  • Line of sight distance more than 2km
