FSO technology is a progressive implementation of smart network solutions these days. The link speed, low cost, a fast implementation are just a few advantages of many other. Despite all those strengths there is at least one limitation. It is called weather. The wavelengths values on which FSO operates are quite similar to fog, smoke, snow and dust particles. It is obvious that if those proportions are comparable, it’s not surprising that there will be some interactions among beams and particles. That’s why we decided to investigate the weather influence to a link availability of FSO at our location in Kosice, Slovakia. To accomplish this we used fog sensor and wrote a simulating program for data processing. The industries as well as universities are already trying to solve the problems when FSO link is not working out because of low visibility. There is already the hybrid equipment on the market which serves as an additional component (an enhancement) by using RF (Radio Frequency) waves.
