Paper Abstract

The present status of the use of fiber-free optics technology for solutions providing high speed local access connectivity is introduced. The advantages of the technologies are presented. By analyzing the factors that limit the public application of the free-space optics, an integrated network solution that combines the benefits of both microwave technology and free-space technology is presented.
