For state-of-the-art facilities and today’s expansive bandwidth and mobility requirements, the use of an optical network at the core can have a dramatic impact on efficiencies and effectiveness for connected devices, bandwidth, speed and seamless expansion.  From initial cost to reduced energy consumption, to reduced space requirements, to dramatic bandwidth capacity, optical networks can make a dramatic impact when compared to traditional copper-based networks. Due to their efficiencies, these Optical Networks are seeing broad adoption across all industries in both the public and private sectors. Optical Network designs allow for a centrally managed datacenter to support all LAN services throughout the campus/building/facility on a resilient fiber backbone.  There are several inherent benefits of this design:

  • Centrally Managed Network
    • Access switches are removed with this Layer2 responsibility collapsed into a single source that provides encrypted connectivity to endpoints
    • No need to replicate the head end switching and routing throughout a facility
      • Telco closets are now passive
      • Saves on power, space, CapEx and OpEx
      • No additional redundant power and network connectivity required
      • Less active switches allow for faster Disaster Recovery times
  • Flat network architecture
    • IP services for all endpoints (voice, data, RF video, video surveillance, access controls, wireless access points, etc.) can all traverse the PON system
  • Carrier-Grade reliability
    • Supports “five-nines” (99.999) of availability
    • “Six-nines” (99.9999) is available with redundant head ends
  • Any existing single-mode fiber plant can be leveraged
    • Over 12-mile range for network without signal regeneration
  • Horizontal cabling is minimized
    • A single fiber can provide up to (8) Ethernet ports and multiple VLANs of connectivity
