Acal Electronics’ Networks Division has been appointed as distributor for the industry-leading family of high bandwidth optical communications products from PAV Data Systems, Ltd. across the EMEA region.

PAV produces carrier-class optical transmission equipment using free space optics (FSO). Secure high bandwidth, high-availability building-to-building connections can be deployed in business parks, city centre offices and campus locations in a matter of hours. Several cellular operators have also deployed PAV technology to link basestations.

PAV’s FSO technology can transmit voice, video and data from 2Mbps to 1.25 Gigabit by line-of-sight using lasers operating in the infrared spectrum. These licence-free optical links are designed to be Class 1M eye-safe and are well suited for congested urban environments. Distances of several hundred metres are typical for these links although PAV provides equipment that operates at up to 4km.

"The FSO market is expanding rapidly, in both the enterprise and telecommunications sector," said Chris Emerson, Managing Director of PAV. “Our agreement with Acal ensures we have both the logistics capacity and technical expertise within the supply chain to ensure customers receive the high levels of service and support they demand.”

“PAV offers customers a fast, reliable and scalable solution to the problem of linking networks between different buildings,” said Paul Reeve, Director of Acal Electronics. “We are pleased to be able to offer our customers the chance to take advantage of the outstanding performance, security and reliability offered by PAV’s FSO solutions.”
