Abstract

Optical wireless local loops (OWLL) based on infrared wireless communication links, are class of wireless access networks capable of delivering the type high-bandwidth services that are becoming increasingly popular with business and residential customers. By combining the use of advanced optical transmission techniques with the flexibility of wireless communication, we describe the possibilities that are created by utilizing this technology in the access network. The possible implementation options for deploying OWLL systems and a performance analysis of a typical OWLL link is also presented. Additionally, we provide a comparison with the other wireless access technologies based on attributes that promote the competitiveness of a particular access network technology.
