FiberLAN is a cost effective fiber alternative to copper for interconnecting broadband services to the end user. This training module focuses exclusively on the use of GPON for delivery of high density Optical LAN solutions to multi-unit commercial and industrial business complexes including hotels, apartment complexes, malls, campus networks, etc.

The Zhone FiberLAN product family includes the MXK823/819/194/198/319 and an array of GPON ONT/CPE options that can be deployed indoors and outdoors. The product consists of a high-density multi-access line concentrator called an Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and Customer Premise Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) that supports delivery of any service to any subscriber over a single common infrastructure. The platform may be managed via the Zhone Management System (ZMS), a java-based suite of client and server applications designed to provide flexible network management of the Zhone FiberLAN product family. Through a series of lectures and hands on exercises, students will be able to configure, provision, administer, manage and troubleshoot the FiberLAN product family.

45-day advance registration and a hardcopy PO are required to guarantee seat & class availability. If a po is issued less than 45 days prior to the start date of the class, no discount is offered. Zhone requires a minimum of three (3) students to conduct a course in Oakland, CA. If this minimum is not met, the class is subject to cancellation. Off site courses requires a minimum of 5 students.

*Discount offered when hardcopy po is issued 45 days in advance.
