fSONA Introduces New Longer Range FSO System

Jan. 14, 2003
Vancouver, Canada, January 14, 2003. fSONA has introduced the rate-adaptive SONAbeam 1250�M Free Space Optical (FSO) system for wireless communications. The 1250-M, as well as the previously released 1250-S, provides wireless connectivity at either Fast (100/125 Mbps) or true Gigabit (1000/1250 Mbps) Ethernet speeds over ranges up to four kilometers (2.5 miles).

Vancouver, Canada, January 14, 2003. fSONA has introduced the rate-adaptive SONAbeam 1250�M Free Space Optical (FSO) system for wireless communications. The 1250-M, as well as the previously released 1250-S, provides wireless connectivity at either Fast (100/125 Mbps) or true Gigabit (1000/1250
Mbps) Ethernet speeds over ranges up to four kilometers (2.5 miles). This gives customers the ability to extend their networks with a product that adapts to their growing needs.

Implementing a license-free, wireless solution that can be redeployed saves time and money for enterprise users and gives service providers flexibility in providing access to broadband customers. Currently the SONAbeam is in demand to provide backbone capacity for Wi-Fi networks � both for high-speed connections between nodes and to connect local Wi-Fi networks with the Internet.

In addition to making the jump from Fast to Gigabit Ethernet, the 1250 series provides transmission from 34 up to 1500 Mbps for numerous specialized applications. The signal is fully regenerated and reclocked (3R) at all data rates in this broad range to ensure the highest possible signal integrity.

One example of applicability to a specialized application is the transmission of video. SONAbeam offers transparent network transport of various video standards including NTSC, PAL, HDTV, SDI, MPEG and DVB-ASI for Cable TV and Satellite companies, Film and Post-Production Facilities, Production Studios, Broadcasters or Internet Providers.
