Unlike many radio systems, the FSO-100E system is highly efficient with
little overhead. The usable payload throughput will exceed 90 Mbps in
each direction, giving a total aggregate throughput of over 180 Mbps
across the link, ideal for bandwidth intensive applications such as
video backhaul or TDM traffic.
Enhanced Security and Interference Immunity
The narrow optical beamwidth of the FSO-100E system virtually eliminates
the possibility of signal intercept in the air. In contrast to using
radio systems, the FSO link is also immune to interference from other
transmitters in the area.
Ease of Installation
Unlike most other FSO systems which require complicated installation
procedures, the Solectek FSO-100E can be easily installed by the end
user. Its simplified and intuitive alignment guide allows a DIY setup
within minutes. In addition to alignment LEDs, an on-board audio tone
generator can be used with a headphone to further aid the alignment
Built-in, Power-over-Ethernet (POE)
POE greatly simplifies the cabling requirement down to a single outdoor
Compact Form Factor
The FSO-100E’s small size and light weight provides for unobtrusive
installations on rooftops or on walls. Rooftop pole mounting gear is
available as an option. The unit, due to its small size, can also be
easily mounted indoors just inside of a window. For large buildings
such as factories or sports arenas, a pair of FSO-100E’s can be used
Advanced Broadbeam LED
The optical beam is relatively broad to enable alignment without expensive
and cumbersome installation tools. This also provides for a stable and
robust connection even in windy conditions or in situations where vibration
can occur to a building or mounting system.
Radio Backup (optional)
The “Link Fault Pass Through” (LFPT) feature on the FSO system allows
an automatic reroute of your network traffic in case of a network failure
on one side of the link.
The back-panel LEDs provide diagnostic information, including the condition
of the remote unit and the end-to-end link availability. The FEF (Far
End Fault) LED provides an easy way to detect a link fault.
