Wireless & Freespace Optics & Detection Systems
VIRSIG has experience installing several different wireless & free-space optical communication devices; these use light propagating, microwave, or millimeter wave technologies, to span open spaces and wirelessly transmit data for telecommunications or computer networking. We have installed this technology for federal and state agencies, as well as for corporations.
Free space, point to point, optics are often used from building to building, or across bodies of water or open roadways, instead of using optical fiber cable or optical transmission lines. The technology is useful where the physical connections are impractical due to high costs or other considerations, such as between hi-rise building, bridges, etc.
