What is a Laser Link or Free Space Optic?

A Hi-tech communication system - It is a system whereby data, whether computer, video or voice data, is transmitted via laser light between two units. The technology is very much like fibre optic in that it uses a light source to transmit the data but instead of being contained in a cable, the laser signal is transmitted through air (free space).

This is where the term Free Space Optics (FSO) is derived; it is sometimes called Optical Wireless as well.

In order for the digital signal to be transmitted and received, there must be clear 'line of site' between each optics unit. In other words, there should be no obstructions such as trees or buildings between the transceiver units.

Another advantage of this technology is that there are no wires, it is completely wireless.

Features and benefits of Laser Links

  • Leased line replacement
  • Cost Effective Fibre replacement
  • High bandwidths available up to 10 Gigabit
  • Licence free operation
  • Cost effective solution
  • Rapid deployment – less than a day
  • Immune from interference
  • Completely Wireless
  • Ideal for setting up disaster recovery alternatives to leased lines.
  • Ideal for urban areas or city centres where the use of leased lines is expensive
  • Suitable for factories or industrial environments where high noise levels can interfere with transmitted data.

Laser Link solutions represent the latest state of the art technology in the field of wireless communication.

Free Space Optical communication uses Laser technology to transmit information between 2 points which have a clear 'line of sight' between them.

For the following distances and data transmission rates please see the optical units available:
