Paper Abstract

This paper discusses test methods and results of fSONA Communications Corporation's SONAbeam 155-M, SONAbeam 622-M and SONAbeam155-S systems - free space-optical data communication systems that use 1550 nm lasers. Presented are results of environmental qualification tests and field performance tests over link ranges of 450 meters and 5 kilometers. The SONAbeam 155-M, SONAbeam 622-M and 155-S are three representatives of a family of products that work in the range of 34 - 1250 Mbps. Very robust performance is the emphasis in the design of these systems.
