IRNAS’ CEO and Tech Lead, Luka Mustafa, whas been invited to give a lecture on FSO (Free Space Optical) technologies and free-space optical communications at the 25th seminar on optical communications SOK, organized by the Radiation and Optics Lab from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Ljubljana, which took place virtually on 4th and 5th February 2021.
He introduced KORUZA, which is the affordable and open source system among free-space optical communications, enabling next generation last-mile connectivity and versatile installation options. With KORUZA, data is securely transmitted point-to-point over an eye-safe collimated beam of light with 1 Gbps or 10 Gbps throughput at distances up to 150 m.
KORUZA is meant for dense urban environments, where digging up roads for cable trenches is not an option, and where congestion with RF and other frequencies causes disruptions of other wireless networks.
The presentation has been published in the 2021 proceedings, we are featuring here as well: SOK 2021 Proceedings. From page 184 on you can read detailed information on KORUZA free-space optical communications system.
It is well worth mentioning, KORUZA project has been recognised as a perfect match for the NGI Pointer project and has been granted funding and mentorship; in months to come, it will undergo a thorough upgrade, stay tuned!
