How to Meet Data Traffic Demand
The StreetHopper project aims to commercialise and bring to market Polewall’s disruptive compact low-cost Free Space Optics (FSO) data link - An optical device that operates in free space, e.g., between buildings. It uses an eye safe, laser-based method for data transmission capitalising on line-of-sight, street-level configurations of single, discreet devices that are capable of providing full duplex (both send and receive) data rates of 1 Gbps.
The disruptive StreetHopper technology is perfect for providing rapid, efficient and secure backhaul of data from small mobile transmission cells and thus for addressing a rapidly expanding market in mobile telecommunications. It therefore directly contributes to solving the industrial and societal issue of dramatically increased data traffic demand across the world.
With the support from the SME Phase 2 funding, Polewall will optimise and market mature its current prototype before the final large-scale piloting together with two large international mobile network operators. The expected outcome of the project will be a validated and commercial StreetHopper FSO data link and a final Business Innovation Plan and Commercialisation Plan for post project execution.
”Initially Nordic Innovators assisted us in defining a clear EU funding strategy for our technology. This resulted in two submitted EU proposals which were both successfully funded - an amazing result! Based on the same technology platform, Nordic Innovators has been capable of securing Polewall funding for both R&D and market maturation activities. This has allowed us to simultaneously address two different market applications! Needless to say, we are very satisfied with Nordic Innovators' work and we are amazed by their level of details and quality assurance.”
