Interconnection of public buildings

Interconnection of public buildings via Free-space optical and laser communication systems

DAEM has undertaken the implementation of private telecommunications infrastructure through the use of Free-Space Optical Communication technology (FSO) and/or laser systems. This technology is applied where physical connections are impractical due to high costs or other integration implications. The project provides an extension to the existing core network level 2 (Ethernet),corresponding to separate VLAN infrastructures and creating a hub of five (5) remote connected municipal buildings.

Project benefits
• High-speed interface
• Reduced operating costs for the developer due to ownership of the project
• No need for a telecommunications provider
• Faster processing operations (due to increased interface speed)
• Future expansion of the interconnection project to twelve more buildings to the central hub site.
