Den Haag, Netherlands Antilles, April 20, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- AllForSite is pleased to announce it has recently signed an agreement with PAV Data Systems, a British company that manufactures and markets the Free Space Optical (FSO) system. “PAV systems are well known for their great quality,” explained Olivier Bourrain, who concluded the deal for AllForSite.
Facing a booming demand for FSO systems, PAV Data Systems and AllForSite have decided to join forces in order to serve large telecom operators in a more responsive manner.
This agreement will allow PAV to accelerate the rollout of its technology whereas AllForSite confirms its interest to promote and sell high added value products.
FSO system is a point-to-point, infrared, wireless laser transmission designed for the interconnection of two points, which have a direct line of sight. The systems operate by taking a standard data or telecommunications signal, converting it into a digital format and transmitting it through free space. The carrier used for the transmission of this signal is Infra red light and is generated by either high power LED or low power laser diode(s).
The easiest way to visualize how the systems work is to imagine two points interconnected with fiber optic cable, then remove the fiber. The basic principles for the transmission of a signal along a fiber are the same as for transmission through free space. The link heads are usually located on rooftops or on wall-mounted bracket or on transmission towers to ensure clear line of sight.
Free Space Optics can provide high bandwidth, can be rapidly deployed, has no licensing requirements and is inherently very secure. It is a point-to-point system, which can be redeployed, and operates, in the infrared spectrum using laser light for the transmission of data, voice and video. Transmission speeds of between 2Mbps and 1.25Gbps are available and PAV’s proven FSO technology is now installed in over 40 countries serving over 7000 links.
The link heads are portable and the internal systems are built on a modular basis. The 2km systems conform to the Class1M safety requirements of IEC60825-1 and the 4km systems conform to Class 3B.
Using FSO links means that there is no requirement to dig trenches for cables and this is one of the factors that makes FSO technology cost effective.
