Success Story

Free Space Optical (FSO) Transmission Systems

A leading manufacturer of FSO systems approached nht for the manufacture of system modules, which they were purchasing from alternative sources.

nht attracted this client on the basis of our cost-competitive and advanced manufacturing facility, but also the strength of our Design and Engineering team.

Free Space Optics is data communications technology using lasers, which transmit and receive data via ‘line of sight’ paths from one “Link Head” to another. The system employed consists of individual modules, for transmit, receive and interface, some of which were based on old technology. nht provided redesign and re-engineering services for both the electronics and the mechanics, resulting in significant cost reductions across the module range and leading to improved product quality and reliability.

nht’s end solution provided the client with a much more competitive and reliable finished product, which is continually improving their market share.
