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. [More]

Optical LAN Steals the Show at HITEC 2014
HITEC 2014, the world’s largest hospitality technology event, wrapped up two weeks ago and we’re still feeling the buzz. With hotels and resorts under pressure to keep pace with evolving network infrastructure needs, it comes as no surprise that Optical LAN stood out as the right solution to this challenge. In fact, a major international hotelier was heavily promoting Optical LAN at HITEC. This sparked interest amongst other hoteliers, property owners, service providers and a wide range HITEC attendees that wanted to know what the buzz was all about. So - what is it about fiber optics, or Optical LAN, that gets everyone excited? [More]

Is Your Network Healthy Enough to Meet HIPAA Criteria?
A recent HIMSS survey found that one of the 3 key concerns for hospitals is ensuring patient information security. This goes hand in hand with HIPAA requirements that put enormous responsibilities on healthcare facilities to secure patient data. As hospitals adapt to meet these requirements, they may not be aware that network infrastructure can help meet the goal. Specifically, hospitals can make their local area networks (LANs) more secure.

Offset the Cost of DAS with Optical LAN
From airports to sports stadiums, through college and healthcare campuses, to hotels, resorts and large enterprises, guests and employees expect reliable wireless coverage. To improve the capacity and coverage of their 3G and 4G/LTE networks to keep end users satisfied, these facilities have been relying on distributed antenna systems (DAS) technology. But, a DAS network is expensive to install, with facility owners arguing it’s not their responsibility to pay for it. Enter Optical LAN. [More]

Transforming Hotel Networks with Fiber Optics at HITEC 2014
HITEC 2014, the world’s largest hospitality technology event, is around the corner. With presentations from industry experts and innovative solutions on display, we will be showcasing our Tellabs Optical LAN solution. Hotel networks are continuously evolving. They must not only meet their guests’ connectivity needs, but also support future data, voice and video services with their associated bandwidth needs. Traditionally, hotels have relied on copper-based local area networks (LANs) to support these services. However, copper networks offer limited bandwidth, requiring constant infrastructure upgrades. The better solution is fiber optics-based Optical LAN. [More]

The Answer to HIMSS' Healthcare IT challenges? Upgrade the Network!
The 2014 HIMSS Leadership Survey found that the top three priorities for the healthcare industry are information security, leveraging IT to improve clinical care and financial viability. The industry has lacked one solution that can address all of these challenges – until now.  The solution is to upgrade a hospital’s technology backbone – aka the local area network (LAN). Traditionally based on old, legacy copper-based networking, hospitals are now turning to fiber optics, or Optical LAN, to meet current and future IT needs. In line with the findings of the HIMSS survey, Optical LAN is: [More]

Law Firm Execs Future-Proof their Network with Optical LAN
After spending 80 years in the same building, Baltimore-based law firm Miles & Stockbridge recently moved into a prestigious downtown building. While the physical move of employees and equipment can be a beast of its own, there was another major challenge that the move created. It was critical for the new space to have a network infrastructure in place to support the firm’s high-bandwidth applications, like high-speed Voice of IP (VoIP) and video and data connections - for all eight floors of its offices. There could be no disruption to business, all systems had to operate seamlessly throughout the project. [More]

Perfect Fit for IT: Optical LAN Delivers IT Convergence and Improved Performance
The IT team at the law firm of Miles & Stockbridge faced common issues with their copper-based LAN. Power and port failures, and the need for card replacements slowed their network performance, putting a strain on their IT team to efficiently make the adds, moves and changes. On top of that, implementing and supporting the firm’s new technologies, devices and applications to improve workplace processes put even more pressure on network bandwidth. When the law firm relocated, the IT team took the opportunity to build a new network. They knew from the start that Optical LAN with its unlimited bandwidth was their best choice. [More]

Building a Simple, Smart, Scalable Foundation for Software-Defined LANs
What if you could dynamically allocate LAN bandwidth based on real-time needs in software? What if you could pre-program strict quality of service (QoS) to different LAN users, services, devices and ports? What if you could manage secure authorization and authentication in software and automatically associate to users, services, devices and ports? If you could, then you would have the foundation for a software-defined “LAN.” [More]
