Abstract

Complementing wireless radio networks with free-space optics (FSO) achieves high data rates by modulating radio subcarriers over an optical carrier without expensive optical fiber cabling, enabling a pervasive platform for reaching underserved areas.In this paper, we review the main features of FSO for terrestrial and inter-satellite communications. Simulations of 1 Gbps data transmission through FSO links in both terrestrial and inter-satellite communications have been investigated to highlight potential atmospheric challenges in FSO
