Paper Abstract

12 We present performance results from a trial of an OC-48 optical wireless link spanning 1.2 km in New York City. The measured laser communication link performance parameters include: link availability, SONET Errors, received optical power, visibility, scintillation characteristics, and alignment effects associated with transmission through a glass window. These were supplemented by concurrent measurements from a MET station to correlate performance with meteorological conditions.
