What Does Free Space Optics Mean?Free space optics is an optical communication technology using light propagating in free space to transmit data between two different points. It is used in conditions where fiber optic cable connections cannot be used because of high costs.
Free space optics is a fiberless, laser-driven technology supporting high bandwidth along with easy to install connections. The light pulses are transmitted through the atmosphere in small conical-shaped beams using low-powered lasers.
The most important advantages of using free space optics are a high bit rate, low bit error rates, license-free long range operations and immunity to electromagnetic interference.
