Optical Wireless Link (OWL)

OWL-Optical Wireless Linkis super highway of wireless Data Transfer is a virtual wireless OFC which works on free-space optics (FSO) Technology. This line-of-sight technology approach uses invisible beams of light to provide optical bandwidth connections. It's capable of sending up to 1Gbps of data, voice, and video communications simultaneously through the air — enabling fiber-optic connectivity without requiring physical fiber-optic cable for an arial distance of 1.5 km. It enables optical communications at the speed of light.

Free-space optical communication (FSO) is an optical communication technology that uses light propagating in free space to wirelessly transmit data for telecommunications or computer networking. "Free space" means air, outer space, vacuum, or something similar. This contrasts with using solids such as optical fiber cable or an optical transmission line. The technology is useful where the physical connections are impractical due to high costs or other considerations.

 


The Technology at the Heart of Optical Wireless


Imagine a 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 a fast, high ROI. That technology is free-space optics (FSO). This line-of-sight technology approach uses invisible beams of light to provide optical bandwidth connections. It's capable of sending up to 1Gbps of data, voice, and video communications simultaneously through the air — enabling fiber-optic connectivity without requiring physical fiber-optic cable for an arial distance of 1.5 km. It enables optical communications at the speed of light. And it forms the basis of a new category of products — optical wireless products from Trackster the recognized leader in outdoor wireless bridging communications. And for providing 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 Trackster's 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 1Gbps full duplex i.e. 2Gbps. 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.
