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.
 

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.
