Optically Isolated. Part of the communications path is "broken" by translating the signal to light and then received and converted back to the signal. This "break" allows the real signals through and leaves behind any interference that may be carried along.

One thing this helped back in the days of brushed motors where the brushes of the motor can cause spark interference, the optoisolating reduces or eliminates that from getting to the ESC.

I'm sure other can explain it better than me.

Optical isolation also provides a means of safety.

Optical isolation is also used to isolate the high voltage side of electronics from the low voltages side of electronics.
