The Challenge:
  • The immediate need to have a high speed dedicated link for download and upload of engineering drawings, CAD/CAM applications, and email delivery systems for on-going construction of Johor Corporation Premier Convention Centre (Persada) at the heart of Johor Bahru’s City Centre.
  • The challenge for super fast deployment: To link-up the server room at KotaRaya building to Menara Ansar building where the current project on Persada Convention Centre is on-going with a Fast Ethernet backbone (100 Mbps).
  • The backbone link-up was up and running almost immediately, transparently transferring data across these 2 buildings before 8pm that night. The entire installation took less than three hours, with the team easily achieving connectivity through double-glass windows.
  • By the next morning, Lightpointe’s optical wireless solution was transferring data across the busy business district without signal interference or disturbance giving Johor Corporation, the much-needed bandwidth (100 MBps) and an immediate network connectivity in record time.

The Solution:

  • FSO Technologies & Solutions Sdn Bhd, a solution provider for FSO technology for Malaysian market and a preferred LightPointe Flight Partner, took up the challenge.
  • FSO Technologies installed a LightPointe FL100 system using a window-to-window installation, whereby all equipment is enclosed inside the two buildings using window-mount devices. Cabling work was carried out in the afternoon prior to the actual installation of LinkHead to hasten the entire installation process


  • Achieve a FULL and TRUE to promise 100Mbps full duplex throughput
  • Highly secured, interference-free network connectivity
  • The super Fast deployment give customer instantaneous connectivity that no other solution could provide
  • Enable bandwidth hungry applications (CAD/CAM) to be run without glitches with excellent email delivery systems
  • Zero physical maintenance with “plug and play” feature of the link removes the need for any switch re-configuration
