Free-space indoor optical communication deploying pencil beams can offer ultra-high wireless capacity individually per user device. By means of 2D diffractive modules, such as a pair of crossed gratings, 2D steering of multiple beams by just tuning the wavelength of each beam can be achieved. The design aspects of an indoor system fed via an intelligent optical fiber backbone network are discussed. First experiments have shown a capacity of 42.8Gbit/s per infrared beam.
