The industry is evolving to Optical LAN. It is like a tsunami that has been traveling unseen underwater for many miles, but as it nears, it quickly rises showing its full potential. This is seen in the rising tide for single mode fiber, and OLAN, that is advancing across all the most popular initiatives of our industry, such as: Software Defined Networking, IoT/Smart Buildings, 5G, Data Centers, and modern office spaces.
This webinar will cover: the benefits of deploying 10 Gigabit PON, guidance on monetizing the subscriber edge, how to support current service needs, and the ability to scale economically.
AFL has launched the FS300-325 Quad OTDR which is designed specifically for contract installers and network operators deploying and maintaining both single-mode and multimode networks, including Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) Passive Optical Networks (PONs), Passive Optical LANs (POLANs) and point-to-point networks.
A growing number of broadband access network operators are moving to XGS-PON as they look to upgrade their GPON FTTP networks. Champion ONE now offers XGS-PON optical transceivers for optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network unit (ONU) applications for network operators moving to 10G PON in the fiber to the premises (FTTP) networks. The optical modules conform to ITU-T G.987.2 and G.9807.2 standards.
The core advantage of pre-terminated cables is modularity. For an office with an open space concept, the pre-terminated cables allow quick reconfigurations such as additions or changes within the workspace. Additionally, you can avoid the hassle of storing the unused cable, cleaning of connector scrap and the need for tools for field installations such as crimping tool, tester. However, this takes up front planning and accurate measurements or you may end up with wastage — or worse — as no changes can be made on site.
One of the advantages of a POL network is that when new services are introduced which require dedicated/higher bandwidth and greater speeds, a smooth, targeted and cost-efficient evolution of the network can be achieved without the need for a forklift upgrade. With POL solutions and GPON technologies evolution can happen gradually, adding the additional capabilities only where the network needs more throughput. The only changes are to the electronics at each end of the network so there is no need to swap cables or upgrade cabling.
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.
