Tellabs and EXFO showcased a live demonstration of “the ever-increasing bandwidths possible over PON while preserving investments in existing fiber cabling, splitters, and equipment, at the Winter BICSI Conference.
Healthcare facilities have undergone rapid changes in recent years with a focus on digital transformation taking center stage. New technologies are being introduced to the market to enhance digital critical care, mobility, IoT and smart buildings. Healthcare campuses are struggling to address the IoT explosion, the influx of wireless devices, assurances of greater stability through constant availability and strict Quality of Service to support their mission critical services.
The new Tellabs® 1000 Multiservice Access Platform (MSAP) Feature Package 18.0 (FP18), and the new Tellabs® IP-POTS VoIP plug-in card, has entered the Limited Availability product lifecycle process, offering service providers a cost-effective, migration from analog voice to VoIP.
PON uses optical line terminals (OLT) for delivery from headend, or remote OLTs in the ODN. Each of these options requires the workforce to upgrade their existing skills, knowledge and abilities.
A passive optical LAN infrastructure can equip a facility to support the coming building-as-a-service model.
The key to bringing this profound intelligence to the building is optical fiber, because it’s the only medium capable of delivering sufficient bandwidth to support current and anticipated usage. Although developers sometimes try to engineer fiber out—because it’s too expensive, or not necessary—tenants have fundamental expectations that only fiber can deliver.
Legrand and DASAN Zhone Solutions have agreed to jointly market DZS’s Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution, FiberLAN™ and Legrand’s complete range of network connectivity, physical support, power and thermal management solutions. Under the terms of the agreement, Legrand and DZS are together targeting the smart building market with a complete solution set that is designed to provide end customers with the infrastructure and equipment needed to deploy a full POL solution.
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.
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.
