This webinar explains how to leverage existing MMF infrastructure for new Passive Optical LAN projects, using cost-effective options for OLAN over MMF
The IEEE 802.3 working group is helping fiber-optic communication firms reduce cost and complexity in optical distribution networks by building on the ‘Super-PON’ concept developed at Google Fiber. Super-PON envisions a FTTH architecture that supports longer distances between the central office and the customer, increasing from 20km today to 50km in up to 1,024 customers per fiber exiting a central office, compared to just 64 with today’s architectures. This enables a significant reduction of the number of central offices required to support PON services in access networks that provide connectivity to end-users in a certain area.
A POL installation at Williamsburg Landing, a life plan community in VA, has proved to be both an economic and service success. The technology provides immediate access to technologies capable of enhancing senior independence while reducing current and future capex and opex costs.
According to a new report, the global passive optical network (PON) will experience significant growth through 2025, driven by the need to connect network machinery and boosted by the decreasing cost of Ethernet equipment and fiber optics.
As we start building 5G mobile networks, a new chapter of the PON story is being created. This time, the next PON technology is embracing a new paradigm to achieve higher capacity more efficiently. Leveraging the data centre ecosystem – rather than the transport systems that PON technologies have historically used – 25G PON represents the next stage in fibre evolution and a new dimension to the PON story.
Join Fluke Network’s Jim Davis for a webinar on field testing and troubleshooting PON LAN Networks per IEC 61280-4. Topics include inspection and cleaning (APC vs. UPC), PON Basics, understanding loss budgets, setting a reference, troubleshooting using an OTDR and Power Meter, and how to document results. Attendees will earn 1 BICSI CEC. Register here.
