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. For more information about our PON Manager, click here.

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]
