Technology

Laser communication utilizes laser light to transmit data for point-to-point communication scenarios on the ground, in air or even space. It offers ultra high data rate communication across vast distances while being highly power efficient and secure at the same time.

  • Ultra long distance communication
  • High bandwidth inaccessible to competing technologies
  • 100% secure (jamming, interception) and stealth due to narrow beam divergence
  • Unregulated use, no usage restrictions, no ITU
  • Safe technology that cannot harm humans or animals with minimal precautions

Applications

Applications for ViaLight’s products range from short term, small scale disaster relief scenarios to permanent, globe-spanning satellite network constellations providing services like internet to billions of people. Other such ground-breaking uses include:

  • Smart City infrastructure
  • High altitude mobile backbone networks
  • Downlinks for Earth observation satellites
  • And many more…

Wireless laser communications, with its unique technological advantages, is the natural extension to terrestrial fiber networks – in effect, it is the optical fiber for the skies and beyond! By bringing backbone capacity anywhere in the world, ViaLight Communications is making the impossible possible.
