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.
A Passive Optical LAN design provides greater flexibility to right-size connectivity across the enterprise LAN – inside buildings and across an extended campus. Optical LAN better aligns space, energy, heat, noise, radiation, and costs with your real bandwidth requirements, which honestly is not going to be 10Gbps to everything.
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.
