With the growth in demand for capacity from users in wireless networks and the scarcity of available RF spectrum, directional networks are expected to provide effective solutions. Directional RF antennas offer increased capacity over omni-directional antenna networks and some emerging highly-directional networks like free-space optical communication (FSOC) systems will be an important part of future networking infrastructures. The ability to construct and manage an optical network has… CONTINUE READING
