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.

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.
