In January 2002 we introduced the Latest Hi-Speed Free Space Optical Communication Solutions by using Class 1M LASER’s to transmit Data from E10 - 10 Mbps Ethernet, E100 - 100 Mbps Fast Ethernet (Full Duplex) , T - 4/16 Mbps Token-Ring, E1 - 2 Mbps , E2 - 8 Mbps, E3 - 34 Mbps, T1 - 1.5 Mbps, T2 - 6 Mbps, T3 - 45 Mbps, Video, ATM – 155 Mbps, 1.25Gbps & SONET- 2.5Gbps. No Routers or additional hardware required. The two ends will be directly connected to a normal Fiber Switch (SC or ST Type), Ethernet switch (UTP Type) or to a PBX system for voice communication.
LASER FSO Technology is a USA invention and it is the fourth generation of optical communication arena. STPL was the pioneer in introducing this technology to Sri Lanka. For the past few years leading companies, including Government Organisations and the private sector along with reputed multinational Companies were contracted with the same technology. There is a greater demand for this LASER FSO technology which is still new to Sri Lankan market and no other product to compete with. STPL hold the sole agent/distributorship and has the write to sell the product overseas.
LASER FSO is a communication technology that can transmit Video, Voice and Data at speed up to 2.5Gbps (called Virtual Fibre with Zero latency) and it does not need license from Telecommunication Regulatory Commission in Sri Lanka and elsewhere.
The LASER FSO technology, being a non-competitive and license-free product, so far has created a good name in the communication field, indicating a great market potential in Sri Lanka as well as in South Asia. STPL hopes to concentrate on this opportunity on top of its other activities.
