Multi-Transceiver Optical Wireless Spherical Structures for MANETs

Executive Summary

Due to its high bandwidth spectrum, Free-Space-Optical (FSO) communication has the potential to bridge the capacity gap between backbone fiber links and mobile ad-hoc links, especially in the last-mile. Though FSO can solve the wireless capacity problem, it brings new challenges such as frequent disruption of wireless communication links (Intermittent Connectivity) and the Line-Of-Sight (LOS) requirements. This paper studies a multi-transceiver spherical FSO structure as a basic building block for enabling optical spectrum in mobile ad-hoc networking.
