Optical wireless link with fiber-like capacity
PhotonBridge optical wireless link provides high-speed communication with fiber-like capacity by using mid-infrared laser. Different from fiber and RF links, optical wireless link is cable- and license-free and offers a cost-effective and easy-to-install backhaul solution.
Unlike traditional FSO links, PhotonBridge technology is designed to avoid attenuation caused by fog and to ensure the high availability required by telecom networks.
PhotonBridge is a university project that targets commercialization of cost-effective high-speed optical wireless link transmitting data with mid-infrared laser.
The optical wireless communication research project started on 2017, but the research background goes back to 2007 when a research of new technology for infrared laser technologies started at the University of Helsinki.
The team has world-leading research knowhow in photonics and enabling laser technology, complemented with international business expertise in the telecom industry.
