FSO communications is an extremely robust point-to-point wireless communications technology that uses a laser,1 operating in the infrared optical band to communicate digital data through free space. Applying laser and not LED technology is due to the high coherence and collimating characteristics of lasers. This allows high optical power transmission over very long distances.

FSO is a connectivity technology widely deployed by enterprises that need high-performance communications in a building to building or campus environment, but have sections of their networks where fiber cannot be installed – either for cost or logistical reasons. The Redline range of FSO products is ideally suited to address these needs by effectively providing a “fiber over the air” capability at various data throughputs and distances.


  • Full duplex Gigabit data throughput, irrespective of the distance between FSO links
  • Point to point line of sight connectivity, although, due to no latency, hops/repeaters can be used
  • Typical deployment range of 100m to 3000 m to obtain a 99.98% availability
  • Maximum range 4400m for a single link. Multiple hops/repeaters can extend the distances
  • License free
  • Interference free operation for both RF emissions and other FSO links
  • Highly secure
  • Rapid deployment
  • Seamless communication of:
    • IP Data
    • Voice Over IP
    • IP video.
