All-wireless networks head for Europe

Holoplex Technologies has launched its optical wireless product Enhanced Free Space Optics (EFSO) solution in Europe.

With an ultra-collimated laser and “unprecedented” link margin, EFSO has become the foundation for advanced all-wireless networks, the company claims.

An EFSO network can simultaneously provide both optical backbone and access links, whether for a cellular carrier, a cable TV operator, or a government or enterprise network.

“Enhanced FSO takes us way beyond the campus,” said Holoplex’s chief marketing officer Anthony Bladon, “and Europe is our main launch pad.

“We are looking to expand our representation in EMEA through the addition of qualified VARs and distributors.”

Dr Fai Mok, CEO of Holoplex, said, “FSO links have been limited to short ranges for high availability, typically up to 500m. But Holoplex elevates the available link margin to 42dB, 100 times that of today’s conventional FSO products.”

Terry Edwards, industry analyst at Engalco and author of The FSO Report (see, commented, “Holoplex’s 30 microradian laser beam is exceptionally narrow, so that the signal available at the receiver is dramatically increased.”
