This Practel report continues the company's project on free space optical communications research. It updates Practel reports on this subject published in 2010-2012.

Particular, the report concentrates on:

VLC - Visible Light Communication
FSF - Free Space Fiber.
In connection with the VLC developments, the report is addressing Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies and markets. LED, in the near future, will be a dominate source of illumination; and used also as a transmitting device. The VLC LED-based channels promise to deliver high-speed data in office, home and other environments with high signal-to-noise ratio, and minimum infrastructure expenses.

The report is analyzing the emerging VLC industry, economics, technologies, standardization and applications. It shows that the spectrum of VLC applications is increasing with each year to support such developments as Intelligent Transportation Systems, Localization and other.

FSF devices are solving access issues in metro and LAN environments; they are also used in other applications. They are relatively inexpensive, support Gb/s rates of transmission, offering low maintenance cost and guarantee a short installation time and security of communications. The report presents the FSF technologies and market analysis as well as discusses their applications together with the survey of vendors and their portfolios.
