Only free space optics or Free Space Optics (FSO) provides the essential combination of qualities required to bring the traffic to the optical fibre backbone with virtually unlimited bandwidth, low cost, ease and speed of deployment. Freedom from licensing and regulation translates into ease, speed and low cost of deployment. Since Free Space Optics (FSO) optical wireless transceivers can transmit and receive through windows, it is possible to mount Free Space Optics (FSO) systems inside buildings, reducing the need to compete for roof space, simplifying wiring and cabling, and permitting the equipment to operate in a very favourable environment. The only essential for Free Space Optics (FSO) is line of sight between the two ends of the link.
