FSO Laser Link Installation Service in London and the Surrounding Area

FSO (Free Space Optics) laser link is a high tech communication system whereby data is transmitted via laser light between two buildings. This technology is very similar to fibre optic, as it uses a light source to transmit the data. However, instead of a cable, the laser signal is transmitted through air.

In order to be able to use FSO laser link between two buildings in London, you need to have a clear line of sight between each optics unit. There should be no obstructions (like trees or other buildings) between the transceiver units.

London companies have begun to rely on laser links increasingly in recent years. The increase in demand is due to obvious benefits of this technology. Some of these benefits are:

  • As a business owner, it’s entirely up to you when the solution is deployed. You can say goodbye to waiting for 12 months to receive authorization to lay underground cables.
  • Laser links are excellent replacements for leased lines.
  • If you’re looking for a cost-effective alternative to fibre, laser links are a great option.
  • You get high bandwidths (up to 10 Gigabit).
  • You don’t need a license for FSO laser links installation.
  • Your free-to-air solution can be deployed in less than a day.
  • Laser links are immune to interference and completely wireless.
  • You can use laser links as an ideal disaster recovery alternatives to leased lines.
  • They are more affordable than leased lines (especially for companies located in central London).
  • They are ideal for factories or industrial environments where high noise levels can interfere with transmitted data.
  • Units supplied by ACCL are accompanied by user-friendly Windows-based software. This allows your network managers to monitor the system at all times. If problems occur, ACCL’s support team is just a phone call away.

Microwave Wireless Bridge Installation Service in London and the Surrounding Area

Microwave wireless bridge installation

Microwave links are a cost-effective way for two or more buildings to share an Internet or Ethernet connection.

Sharing a network between all the buildings where your company has offices helps you:

  • Reduce costs (you only pay for one Internet access point).
  • Have one Ethernet connection and a single LAN for your entire business.
  • Make telephone calls between buildings in close proximity.
  • View media files simultaneously even if the users are in different buildings.

Reasons to Choose a Microwave RF Link between Your London Buildings

  • Can penetrate walls within a building.
  • Eliminates the need for complicated wires and cables.
  • Very easy installation.
  • Cost-effective.

However, just like FSO laser links, microwave links need a clear line of sight between the transceivers in order to work. Furthermore, they are highly susceptible to extreme weather conditions, especially when moisture is present: fog, rain, mist, snow, clouds may disrupt microwave communications. This is why some London business owners opt for fibre optics connections instead.
