What is Passive Optical LAN
A New Optical LAN solution that any enterprise can use to:
The combination of Capital and Operational cost savings equate to significant long-term financial benefits.
FiberLAN is the highest density POL based Ethernet solution in the industry today!
FiberLAN is the most cost effective, efficient and environmentally friendly alternative to existing copper based Ethernet LAN infrastructure available today.
FiberLAN is a high-performance, high density Passive Optical LAN (POL) delivering high speed data, voice and video to multi-level, multi-unit commercial and industrial complexes, including hotel or hospital rooms, bandwidth demanding desktops, Wireless Access Points, work-stations and ANY other IP connected device.
FiberLAN can be deployed in offices, rooms, factories or other industrial harsh environments, delivering comprehensive connectivity for any Local Area Networking requirement.
The problem today - aging copper switched LAN networks send radio frequency (RF) signals between switches and computers via copper wire which are highly susceptible to RF interference and wire tap.
These signals can not travel more than 300 feet from the LAN switch to the computer and have significant power requirements and massive amounts of copper wiring.
In addition to copper wire distance limitations, copper LAN is taxed with excessive rack and floor space requirements to accommodate all the switches and cross connect panels.
Also required for copper LAN, air conditioning, and HVAC systems required in each wiring closet, and then required once again on each floor through out the each building served.
Zhone's Powerful Passive Optical LAN Solution provides compelling benefits over the traditional copper LAN approach. Tremendous savings are realized in every aspect of a deployment.
The combination of capital and operational cost savings equate to significant benefits – CAPEX, OPEX and TCO.
FiberLAN is "Green Technologies" providing reduction in enterprise wide power, floor space and carbon foot-print while increasing "Network-Life-Expectancy" with a lifespan greater than 50 years.
The Association for Passive Optical LAN is a non-profit organization composed of manufacturers, distributors, integrators, and consulting companies who are actively involved in the Passive Optical LAN marketplace. Our members support the growth and education of the Passive Optical LAN industry and are focused on formulating solutions on how best to market, install, educate, and support this burgeoning field.
