Optical Wireless communication systems are a good competitor to other wireless communication technologies in relation of its capacity to deliver high-speed broadband traffic. The way optical wireless transceivers operate is more or less the same as fiber optics ones; however, since laser signals are transferred through the atmosphere, the path loss between the transmitter and the receiver is getting raised due to various external factors (conditions) that appear on weather. The characteristics of optical wireless systems and it changes in the face of different weather conditions strongly affect the parameters of Quality of Service. Also, this influence provides the possibility to quantify the significance of the service disruption impact to the metrics of Quality of Experience. Due to this, this paper gives a new approach to the relation of the characteristics of optical wireless communication system, known as Free Space Optics, affected during the weather-based disruptions with the parameters of Quality of Service. Furthermore, this relation is used in estimation of Quality of Experience metrics.
