Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/pb6msb/optical_wireless_s) has announced the addition of the "Optical Wireless Systems - Visible Light Communications and Free Space Optics: Technologies and Markets" report to their offering.

Visible and invisible optical wireless communication (OWC) found multiple applications, supporting security and cost efficiency. OWC is license-free and delivers high-speed data rates in the order of Gb/s. This report addresses contributions to the ICT development made by two groups of related OWC technologies:

- VLC - Visible Light Communication

- FSF - Free Space Fiber.

OWC advantages, such as achievable high data rate, simplicity and efficiency of a communications channel, have fostered significant research efforts aimed at utilizing optical wireless solutions. FSF is much more mature than VLC; though this technology never stopped improving. VLC is currently evolving; with standardization carried out by major organizations, such as the IEEE and other.

In connection with the VLC developments, the report is addressing Light Emitting Diode (LED) technologies and markets. LED, in the near future, will be a dominate source of illumination; and used also as a transmitting device. The VLC LED-based channels promise to deliver high-speed data in office, home and other environments with high signal-to-noise ratio, and minimum infrastructure expenses.

The report is analyzing the emerging VLC industry, technologies, standardization and applications.

Another OWC technology - FSF - is also addressed in this report. FSF devices are solving access issues in metro and LAN environments. They are relatively inexpensive, support Gb/s rates of transmission; they are also offering low maintenance cost, guarantee a short installation time and security of communications. The report presents the FSF technologies and market analysis as well as discusses their applications together with the survey of vendors and their portfolios.
