Webinar: Flexible Design Choices With 10G Passive Optical LANs

The lifecycle of a traditional enterprise Ethernet switch, supported by copper cable, is 5 to 7 years. POLs eliminate the need to rip and replace network infrastructure, requiring changes only to the endpoints. This webinar will focus on the deployment of optical line terminals, passive optical splitters and optical network terminals to optimize enterprise network architecture for modern-day applications like IoT, cloud, network-as-a-service and wireless.

Overcoming the Challenges at Texas A&M Kyle Field due to the Changing Landscape of Always Connected Technology

Tellabs Optical LAN fiber-based stadium network is the foundation enabling Texas A&M’s Kyle Field to surpass previous game day data traffic peak usage. In order to meet the demands of all these new services without the cost and complexity of legacy technologies, TAMU chose a converged infrastructure, with optical fiber cabling and power delivery to the edge, for both LAN and DAS needs. 

Blog – Network Security: It’s Time to Consider Passive Optical LAN

Deploying a POL can help make your network more secure.  Here’s why. Fiber optic cabling is more secure than copper cabling. Centralized intelligence and management is accessible only at the OLT, locked in the main data center. It’s easy to implement tight network access control. ONTs do not store user or network information. And, ONTs have no local management access.
 

Proposal for an SDN-Like Innovative Metro-Access Optical Network Architecture

Telecommunication operators are facing an epochal challenge due to the need of higher reconfigurability, flexibility, and dynamicity for their networks. In the latest years, this necessity has been addressed by the introduction of Software-Defined Networking (SDN), mainly in the fields of data centers and core networks. The present work introduces a unified metro-access optical network architecture based on some features inspired by SDN models. The essential aim is to enable bandwidth shared among different passive optical networks (PONs) in order to achieve higher adaptability to increasingly migratory and volatile traffic patterns.

D.C.’s The Wharf uses PON to Update Services

Vision Technologies designed, installed, and commissioned a unified WiFi and passive optical network (PON) system for The Wharf, a mile-long, 24-acre, $2.5-billion mixed-use development along the Potomac River in Washington D.C. The system provides state-of-the-art, pervasive 802.11ac wireless service to residents, workers, and guests traversing the outdoor, garage, and 6000-person indoor-concert-venue areas. The entire implementation, testing, and commissioning was accomplished on a fast-track 30-day schedule.

The industry is evolving to Optical LAN!

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.

Champion ONE unveils SFP+, XFP XGS-PON optical transceivers

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.
