Scalability Builds a Stronger and Better Network

Last month, we discussed the simplicity of our Panorama PON Manager. As the cornerstone of our Optical LAN solution, this management system has another coveted feature important to our customers – scalability.

Last month, we discussed the simplicity of our Panorama PON Manager. As the cornerstone of our Optical LAN solution, this management system has another coveted feature important to our customers – scalability

Our PON Manager’s scalability can be seen on many levels. To start, the PON Manager is ideal for any network size and companies large and small. It works with Solaris-based and Windows-based options, supports virtualized Windows environments and can also be accessed via a web browser in Windows.

To simplify it even further, the PON Manager also offers remote access options, so our customers can easily monitor the network and quickly make moves, adds or changes (MACs) from their laptops, tablets or iPads. In fact, one of our customers, Deltek, stated that they saved 50 hours a week in IT staff time by achieving faster MACs with our PON manager.

Additionally, the IT staff can scale their network with confidence by creating templates and profiles that can be distributed locally, regionally and even internationally. This enables process consistency and underlying policy consistency to assure tight operation and security controls.

However, scalability is not just a feature of the PON Manager – it can be seen across our entire Optical LAN system. For example, did you know that our product portfolio features the world’s smallest ONT? Our Mini ONTs can easily be installed in small spaces, including in cubicles, on walls or in raceways of work environments. Just like the PON Manager, Tellabs’ equipment can easily fit the needs of any company.

Scalability is a critical piece of why our customers choose our Optical LAN solution over copper-based LANs. For example, read how our solution helped Miles & Stockbridge achieve their goals.

Optical LAN: A Critical Piece of a Library's Technological Innovation

When Illinois’ Aurora Public Library first decided to build its new main library, they knew from the get-go their network had to be built around a technology that was both simple and scalable. With digital learning on the rise, they needed a technology backbone that could support its community’s network needs today and in the future. The only solution that met all of the library’s goals was an Optical LAN network.

Eliminate the Complexity and Choose Optical LAN for a Simpler, Converged Campus Network

Across the education industry, the need for high-bandwidth, high-performance solutions has never been more critical. Our recent presentation at a GAMEIS event is proof – K-12 school districts feel network pains as they continue to digitize their classrooms. But, this is an issue for college campuses too, as they struggle to support growing number of connected devices.

The Smart Answer to a Simple Question: How to Improve Your Network?

I recently participated in a panel for the inaugural Lightwave Optical Innovation Summit, where experts from the networking space discussed the role fiber should play in future local area networks (LANs) and why. With all the wired and wireless critical services that relies on a strong network connection, it’s clear that there’s growing excitement about where Optical LAN fits in the networking landscape.

The Simple Solution to Your Network Management Challenges

What drives our customers to seek an alternative to the traditional, copper-based LAN? To start, for many, network management is a time-consuming process that requires IT staff to physically travel across a campus - or even a city - to make moves, adds and changes (MAC) to the network at a specific telecom closet. Imagine what it would be like if the IT manager didn’t have to do that and could manage the entire network from the comfort of his or her desk.
