11 Cable free Cable free ’s Data Market Trends Note: Figures are % sales by number of units, not turnover, excluding sales of telecom and voice products

12 Cable free High Fade Margin required to combat bad weather  Rain – low attenuation< 9dB/km  Snow – moderate attenuation< 12dB/km  Mist – moderate attenuation< 12dB/km  Thick fog – high attenuationup to 100dB/km System features meet ‘5-nines’ criteria Ultra-sensitive APD receivers High Quality optics & filtering Automatic Transmit Power Control (ATPC) Cable free Availability of FSO Importance of Fade Margin for FSO

13 Cable free For % Reliability: Plan for worst-case local Fog densities FSO illustration of Fog Densities No fog – Visibility well over 2km Light fog – Visibility over 1km Thick fog – Visibility 400m Use CableFree’s Link Planning Tools

14 Cable free Cable free ATPC – how it works No fog – Visibility well over 2km Light fog – Visibility over 1km Thick fog – Visibility 400m In clear conditions, the CableFree ATPC system automatically reduces output power to a lower level, down to 1/16 of maximum. Overload of the receiver is avoided even in bright sunny conditions In moderate conditions, the ATPC controller turns the power up to ensure optimum power received at both ends of the link. Sophisticated on-board software avoids overload or drop-out In bad conditions, ATPC can increase the power to maximum output for a given product type. Note: This means you can install a 4km FSO system say at 600m, to increase availability beyond that which a nominal 1km system could provide

15 Cable free Cable free ATPC – with & without CableFree link with ATPC switched off CableFree link with ATPC A CableFree link without ATPC enabled, showing significant variations in received signal level (RSSI). RSSI variations can be caused by weather effects such as fog, heavy rain, snow or dust storms; also thermal effects, bracket movement and long-term drift A CableFree Link with ATPC enabled in identical conditions shows no variation in received power (RSSI). The controller automatically adjusts the transmitted power levels to ensure optimum signal received at both ends of the link. Optimum power levels mean minimum Bit-Error- Rate (BER) and reduced risk of overload

16 Cable free FSO Choice of Wavelength Avoid the absorption peaks in the atmosphere 785nm980nm Slightly Greater fog penetration CableFree avoids absorption caused by water molecules There is no ‘magic wavelength’ which avoids fog – but … Longer wavelengths allow higher safe output powers A properly designed link budget is the most important

17 Cable free FSO Reliability Solid-state Peltier cooling for long laser life - MTBF >20yrs Use of multiple lasers and drivers - protects against possible failure of semiconductor lasers Housings are water, moisture and rust-proof System design uses quality components specified for high- reliability telecom systems Proven track record with over 2000 deployments worldwide CableFree has a ‘fit-and-forget’ design philosophy. Cooling, Heating & power management ensure reliability in all climates. Management systems provide indication of any degradation Equipment Reliability

18 Cable free FSO & Laser Safety Avoid risk of retinal damage Output power – Class 3B not acceptable, 1M is the accepted limit Large apertures are safer – Avoid ‘point source’ emission Divergent systems are safer – e.g. CableFree 0.5 degree Mounting locations – e.g. roof parapets safer than through glass What are the requirements?

19 Cable free Cable free FSO performance Quality Transmit Optics: Circular, Wide beam CableFree - Circular beam combats X & Y movement Older product – Narrow Elliptical beam Misaligns in wind, vibration & building movement 10m 1,000m Wide beam – no need for complex auto-tracking
