New option for fSONA's top of the line free space optical wireless product line allows the SONAbeam M to use of Power over Ethernet (PoE)
10 December 2013 - Vancouver, Canada - fSONA Networks, manufacturer of the fastest optical wireless products on the market today, today announced a new power option for their award-winning SONAbeam® M free space optical wireless links. The SONAbeam M series can now be ordered with or upgraded to use Power over Ethernet (PoE).
"SONAbeam with PoE saves time and money during installation by eliminating the need for separate cabling and, in some instances, separate contractors to run both power and Ethernet," remarked fSONA President and CEO, Andrew Grieve. "This reduces time to deployment and increases ROI for our customers who want to avoid delays and get connected quickly."
A SONAbeam M system adapted with the PoE kit can be connected to any standard network port via the included injector. Three versions of the SONAbeam PoE kit will be offered - for North American, European and Universal power cord types.
SONAbeam eliminates the substantial costs of digging up streets and sidewalks required to install fiber, and unlike other wireless solutions, the SONAbeam is immune to electro-magnetic (EM) and radio-frequency (RF) interference which means no licensing is required. fSONA Networks manufactures the highest-quality, highest-performance, free space optical wireless communications equipment on the market today. Key to SONAbeam's breakthrough laser technology is its operational wavelength of 1550 nm, which provides a broad spectrum of safety and performance advantages. The SONAbeam's high-powered laser transmitters are able to penetrate heavy rain, snow and fog far more effectively and consistently than any other available FSO technology.
fSONA Networks is an innovative provider of next generation optical wireless (also known as Free Space Optics, or FSO) solutions that utilise a flexible point-to-point architecture and protocol transparent design. Founded in 1997 with a goal to develop premier, low-cost, eye-safe, optical transmission products for the broadband access market, fSONA has created the toughest, most powerful free space optics systems ever brought to market - the SONAbeam® family.
