Interconnections

Wireless link

Not only do wireless networks bring considerable benefits to internal applications, they also represent a real alternative to the very expensive leased lines used to communicate between buildings. In addition, they provide a cost-effective backup solution for fiber optic or copper connections, ensuring greater network availability.

Benefits of wireless technologies

  • Fast realization,
  • Low investment / installation costs,
  • Very little or no recurring costs,
  • High bandwidth (up to 10 Gb/s),
  • 99.99% availability.

Broadband communication over long distances

Long awaited, the final approval of the 802.11n standard by the IEEE on September 11, 2009, closes six years of standardization. Its main promise lies in almost tenfold theoretical speeds on radio links, in the order of 300 to 600 Mbit/s, compared to previous standards (Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g).

Thanks to our partnership with Proxim Wireless, we are able to offer you various robust point-to-point and/or point-to-multipoint interconnection solutions that respect this new standard and offer you real speeds of 100 Mbit/s guaranteed over a distance of up to 8 Km.

To achieve these performances, the 802.11n specifications incorporate a concentrate of technological innovations and in particular the use of multiple transmit/receive antennas (MIMO, Multiple-Input Multiple-Output).

High-speed communication over short distances

Free-Space-Optics (FSO) are cost-effective optical systems for wireless data transmission with line of sight. They allow to obtain Gigabit links over maximum distances of about 400m. These systems use a frequency band invisible to the naked eye, close to the infrared zone. They are not subject to a licence and no fees are payable for the use of the frequency spectrum. These systems can therefore be put into operation quickly. As FSO systems do not cause electromagnetic waves, their use is considered emission-free and environmentally friendly.

Applications

  • FSO Ethernet Bridge,
  • LAN extension,
  • Redundant connection to wireless and wired links,
  • Disaster Recovery (backup and recovery plan),
  • Wireless relay element (WiFi, WiMAX, Cellular),
  • Centralization of IT infrastructures,
  • Mesh” configuration.

Characteristics

  • Fast/Gigabit Ethernet 10/100/1000 Mbits/s,
  • Only one unit for the antenna and the radio part,
  • PoE (Power over Ethernet) – a single Ethernet cable for data, power supply and monitoring,
  • No concession, no license,
  • No building permits,
  • No radiation,
  • Very secure.
