No outages during major sandstorm of 2003 Goal: Solution: Benefits:

13 North Belfast, UK Deliver broadband triple-play cost effectively for up to 7,000 endpoints in a disadvantaged community in Northern Ireland SONAbeam FSO links combined with b radios provide broadband access to schools, businesses and residential users Wireless backbone was installed quickly and is maintained by community. Cost-effective units also have no recurring monthly fees. Goal: Solution: Benefits:

14 Rebuilding Belfast with Broadband We chose free space optics because, with it, we didnt need to dig up the streets and pay high annual charges for leased lines or license fees. There is no radiation risk and the network could be up and running quickly. The Flax Trusts vision is a network that connects businesses with their customers, as well as churches with their parishioners and schools with their students. In addition to creating vital communication links, the network will provide much needed job training and jobs for the residents of North Belfast. March/April 2003 Issue

15 Costa Rica Find a high-speed wireless solution capable of operating through the extreme rains in Costa Rica which is located in ITU Rain Zone P. The SONAbeam 155-M was installed at 900 m during the worst annual rains. The SONAbeam was an outstanding solution - it achieved 100% availability at up to 150 mm/per hour and % availability in rains up to 180 mm/per hour. Goal: Solution: Benefits:

16 Port Louis, Mauritius Build an optical backbone to distribute satellite feed to business customers such as commercial banks SONAbeam 1250-M Gigabit system provides rampable bandwidth Rapidly deployed, high-speed solution is flexible and can be redeployed if customers move Goal: Solution: Benefits:

17 Connect production house to proprietary media network for transfer of "dailies" to Hollywood, CA SONAbeam 155-M combines very high bandwidth and low latency making it an ideal wireless solution for video transmission Able to operate through windows, able to be deployed rapidly Toronto, Canada Goal: Solution: Benefits:

18 Wireless Carriers fSONA Proven Solutions

19 Puerto Rico Cingular needed to immediately expand capacity for their mobile wireless network in Puerto Rico but had no available spectrum to do so. SONAbeam 52-M running 4 x T1 linked two locations 4 km (2.5 miles) apart Solution was available immediately and had the necessary range. The 52-M has performed in intense 150mm/hr rains and throughout Hurricane Isabel with no outages or errors. Goal: Solution: Benefits:

20 Carriers fSONA Proven Solutions

21 Alcatel - Milan, Italy Determine if FSO was a viable alternative for carrier-class networks. Study the effects of the environment on FSO. Tested the SONAbeam 155-M extensively for over 2 years. Combined the results with weather date to develop accurate availability predictions SONAbeam performed excellently and Alcatel is now an OEM supplier and markets the SONAbeam as the Alcatel 9600 FSO Goal: Solution: Benefits:

22 British Telecom, UK Free space optics has come of age. We have always maintained that there is a definite role for optical wireless in the telecommunications network infrastructure.
