Project Description

The Issue: Outdated Copper Infrastructure

Traditional copper-based LANs are outdated and failing to meet the increase in bandwidth demanded by the end user. Present day copper infrastructure is still based on the same Legacy technology that was originally used for voice analog signals which demanded minimal bandwidth. Additionally, copper is less reliable, less durable, conductive, and easier to “tap” into than fiber optics.

The Solution: Passive Optical LAN

POL is based on Verizon’s Fiber-to-the-home “GPON” technology, which has been deployed for decades. POL takes it a step further, delivering last-mile connectivity over a single strand of fiber. Passive Optical LAN is a point-to-multi-point, future-proof telecommunications network replacing traditional copper-based LANs.

POL vs. Traditional Copper LAN

Economic Advantages

Future-Proof

Unlike fiber which can evolve to meet future bandwidth demands, traditional copper cabling needs to be refreshed every 7-10 years to keep pace.

Eco-Friendly

POL eliminates the need for midspan electronics, power, and cooling infrastructure, thus enabling a “Green IT” by greatly reducing the consumption of power, space and copper needed.

Centrally-Managed

POL allows the entire network to be centrally-managed through a software-defined platform which helps improve maintenance, troubleshooting, and the overall performance of the network.

Save Time & Money

Reducing the amount of cable in turn greatly reduces the installation time and overall labor cost to deploy a LAN.

Technical Advantages

Inherent Security

Unlike traditional LAN, “Tapping in” to a POL is extremely difficult due to the physical properties of fiber optic cables, as well as the use of AES (advanced encryption standard) in POL technology.

Higher Performance

Utilizing an all-optical infrastructure gives POL a much higher bandwidth capacity allowing it to carry multiple services over one piece of glass.

Converged Network

Unlike traditional LANs, POL allows you to support multiple services over one fiber – voice, video, security, internet and wifi all centrally managed.

Greater Range

POL allows you to extend your network up 20 kilometers from the OLT to the end device (ONT). Whereas conventional copper typically allows for a maximum of 100 meters from the switch to the drop location.
