L3 Technologies (NYSE:LLL) announced on Tuesday the award of multiple contracts relating to the development of Free Space Optics (FSO) capabilities for US Department of Defence (DoD) and space customers.
Combination of free space optics (FSO) and RF for different wireless application scenarios.
Our new AireBridge Series, which are the world's first software defined Free Space Optics bridges, were well received by enterprises such as hospitals, schools, government agencies, and businesses needing to connect two or more buildings wirelessly and cost effectively.
The Terabeam Elliptica series provides carrier-grade, network-ready free space optics (FSO) connectivity at Fast Ethernet (100 Mbps) and OC-3/STM-1 (155 Mbps) capacities by sending an invisible, eye-safe beam of laser light through the air, from rooftops, through windows, or from cell towers to another such location.
Terabeam's first deployment as part of the project is a 400 meter free space optics link connecting two Department of Energy sites in Washington, D.
Equipment latency is so low--and the speed-of-light performance advantages of Free Space Optics transmission are so great--that an Aire X-Stream signal traveling at 300,000 km/s through the air will outrun a fiber optics cable signal traveling at 200,000 km/s in less than 20 meters.
IEEE 1588v2 synchronization support is essential for microwave, millimeter wave (MMW), and Free Space Optics (FSO) backhaul solutions in today's 4G and future 5G metropolitan area networks.
When we discuss deploying free space optics as the primary access technology into the PSTN (the true last mile), we introduce a whole new series of alignment and reliability issues that the article does not make reference to.
