With the increasing demand for bandwidth, Free Space Optics provides a cost effective approach to rapidly enable high bandwidth linkages. Using light as a transport medium, free space optics transmission is immune to RF (Radio Frequency) interference. Most important of all, since it is based on light, it is licensed free, hence permitting user to setup the equipments as and when desired.
In comparison with RF solutions, FSO has the following advantages:
- Unlicensed, plug and play where necessary
- Immune to RF interference
- High bandwidth, upto 1.25 Gbps, wirelessly
- Distance of up to 2.0 km
- Rapid setup
