This article discusses the prospect of free- space optical links (FSOLs) in relation to backhaul applications as well as its technology trend, including the recent development of radio on free-space optical links (RoFSOLs). Here, we consider how FSOLs act as useful transport media, focusing on practical experience in mobile backhaul networks. We refer to studies on FSOL conducted by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) from the viewpoint of the possible exploitation of the frequency bands above 3,000 GHz, which are outside the scope of the current Radio Regulations.
