What is free space optics?
Imagine an outdoor wireless technology that offers full-duplex Gigabit Ethernet throughput. A technology that can be installed license-free worldwide, and can be installed in less than a day. A technology that offers high security and a fast, high ROI. That technology is free-space optics Trimble (FSO). This line-of-sight technology approach uses invisible beams of light to provide optical bandwidth connections.
It's capable of sending up to 1.25 Gbps full duplex of data, voice, and video communications simultaneously through the air — enabling fiber-optic connectivity without requiring physical fiber-optic cable. It enables optical communications at the speed of light. And it forms the basis of a new category of products — optical wireless products from Trimble FSO, the recognized leader in outdoor wireless bridging communications. Trimble FSO provides high-speed connections, across Enterprises and between cell-site towers; it is the best technology available. FSO is a line-of-sight technology that uses invisible beams of light to provide optical bandwidth connections that can send and receive voice, video, and data information. Today, FSO technology — the foundation of Trimble FSO optical wireless offerings — has enabled the development of a new category of outdoor wireless products that can transmit voice, data, and video at bandwidths up to 1.25 Gbps. This optical connectivity doesn't require expensive fiber-optic cable or securing spectrum licenses for radio frequency (RF) solutions. FSO technology requires light. The use of light is a simple concept similar to optical transmissions using fiber-optic cables; the only difference is the medium. Light travels through air faster than it does through glass, so it is fair to classify FSO technology as optical communications at the speed of light.
Trimble FSO Gigabit Series combines the speed and security of industry-leading 7th generation optical wireless technology with radio frequency transmission. Based on 15 years of wireless experience, we’ve designed these bridges for maximum performance and unbeatable ROI.
