fSONA Releases Highest Capacity Free Space Optical Wireless Products on the Market Today – the SONAbeam 2500-E and 2500-Z
VANCOUVER, September 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
Highest Capacity, Single Link Solution Provides Economical Last Mile
fSONA [http://www.fsona.com ] Systems today announced two new free space optical
wireless systems capable of transmitting up to 2.5 Gbps (2xGigE, OC48/STM16) of full
duplex bandwidth. The SONAbeam(R) 2500-E and SONAbeam 2500-Z mark another step forward for
fSONA’s SONAbeam product line.
The SONAbeam 2500-E and 2500-Z systems are ideal for enterprises that need high
capacity connections between offices but are also excellent options for service providers
who want to offer high capacity services to their enterprise customers.
The SONAbeam 2500-E typically operates at distances up to 1 km, and the SONAbeam
2500-Z up to 350m. Both systems utilize a pair of GigE interface ports to provide 2.5
Gbps, full-duplex links via an indoor multiplexor.
“Our customers have told us they require more bandwidth for certain applications but
they prefer a single link solution,” comments fSONA’s Chief Executive Officer, Andrew
Grieve. “Other 2.5 Gbps wireless solutions pair two systems together at added expense. The
SONAbeam 2500-E and 2500-Z both offer the highest capacity wireless connection in an
economical, single link solution making them ideal for connecting satellite or campus
office buildings or for service providers who need to bridge the last mile.”
SONAbeam eliminates the substantial costs of digging up streets and sidewalks required
to install fiber while also avoiding recurring costs. Unlike other wireless solutions, the
SONAbeam is immune to electro-magnetic (EM) and radio-frequency (RF) interference which
means no licensing is required.
fSONA Networks manufactures the highest-quality, highest-performance, free space
optical wireless communications equipment on the market today. Key to SONAbeam’s
breakthrough laser technology is its operational wavelength of 1550 nm, which provides a
broad spectrum of safety and performance advantages. The SONAbeam’s high-powered laser
transmitters are able to penetrate heavy rain, snow and fog far more effectively and
consistently than any other available FSO technology.
