What once sounded futuristic is now thoroughly practical: lasers are the new way to transmit information securely, quickly, and easily. These high-tech devices typically cost less than the older technology to install, and will almost certainly have a lower maintenance cost. Laser beam communications use light amplification through the stimulated emission of radiation (LASER) technology to compress data and send it to designated receptor points, which then disassemble the data and render it back into its original form.
This type of transmission is considered highly secure, and is efficient. However, for optimal function, laser beam communications require a direct line of sight between transmitter and receiver. That’s why you need a company to help you design your individual system, providing you with all the information to determine the best fit for your space. At FastLinks Wireless, we know what it takes to install the best systems. We are certified by all the top manufacturers and known for our use of the latest tools for maximum precision.
FastLinks Wireless microwave systems allow for more line of sight flexibility, but can send data more slowly. Typically, the need to have line of sight remains, but the signal can be relayed across a number of different satellite locations, each boosting it onward until it reaches its final destination. Microwave radios vary in power, intensity, and format, but the knowledgeable staff at FastLinks Wireless has the experience to guide you to the precise microwave system for your needs.
We offer two main types of microwave radio: licensed and unlicensed. Licensed radio sends its signals within an area of the spectrum regulated by the government, meaning that a registration must be completed and official permission obtained to use a certain frequency. However, once that frequency is obtained, it becomes a private commodity free of any interference. This can be useful in a city where other wireless networks might confuse signals. However, in less crowded environs, unlicensed microwave radios tend to work just as well as a licensed radio would.
