BridgeComm Will Leverage Their Free Space Optical Communications Along With Infrastructure-grade Telecommunication Equipment From Nokia USA
April 01, 2021 09:00 AM Eastern Daylight Time DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE) – BridgeComm, a leader in optical wireless communications solutions and services, today announced it has developed high-speed optical communications of speeds beyond 100GB per second and will offer point-to-point demos at the Hampton Inn in Sneads Ferry, NC, in conjunction with a global conference April 6-15. This project, which has already confirmed 100gbps connectivity in the lab, is enabled by BridgeComm’s extensive work in free space optical technology and Nokia’s network equipment and services backed by Nokia Bell Labs.
This collaboration brings opportunities for a cost-effective modular and scalable communications solution, providing ultra-high-speed throughput with a faster, more secure network optimized for multiple domains. This project also aims to expedite a quicker adoption of 5G networks with a reach to provide wireless access in rural communities.
“We are excited to bring our point-to-point (P2P) technology out of the lab and in front of customers,” said Barry Matsumori, BridgeComm CEO. “By incorporating our optical wireless communications with Nokia’s industry-leading infrastructure telecommunication tools, we can support the diverse demands for data, speed and security end-users require beyond the reach of fiber and without the compromises of radio communications.”
BridgeComm and Nokia will leverage existing commercial technology to design, construct and operate a private wireless network. The largely virtualized network will be based on standardized 3GPP architectures and allow for a cost-efficient yet highly scalable network testbed that will enable rapid experimentation of applications. Each connected private wireless location will benefit from extremely high data transfer rates, lower latency, and a resilient backhaul that is LPD/LPI and independent of allocated and costly spectrum requirements.
BridgeComm’s global network of optical ground stations offers a high-security solution for rapid point-to-point data transmissions with high-bandwidth. For those interested in a demo or more information, please visit http://bridgecomminc.com/demo_p2p.html.
