The challenge for sports teams is how to keep fans coming to the stadium, when so many other options exist. Texas A&M wanted to take their fan experience to the next level by leveraging technology to create a stadium experience that students and fans would enjoy just as much as the game itself. This included new multimedia displays, both in the stadium and in the concourses, connected menu boards and operations in the concession areas, and excellent connectivity for both cellular and WiFi-connected devices in and around the stadium.
Facilitating POLs over Existing Multimode Fiber Cabling Infrastructures with MPLC-enabled Technology
To meet the growing demand for high-speed and higher bandwidth, many companies believe they need to deploy single mode fiber. Since approximately 78% of optical fiber deployed in LANs is multimode, this would require an expensive upgrade. However, MPLC-enabled technology such as modal splitters, can make POL singlemode equipment compatible with MMF cabling.
For network security, it’s time to consider passive optical LAN
Passive optical LANs reduce network points of vulnerability and improve network security both at the electronics level as well as across the cabling infrastructure.
