What's far more efficient than traditional copper-based Ethernet LAN?
Fiber-based Optical LAN saves up to 70% of CapEx, 80% of energy, and 90% of space needs
Enterprises and government agencies require huge amounts of bandwidth to meet their communication needs. But as their network requirements increase, so do costs.
There is a growing trend to replace copper networks with fiber networks. A revolution in Optical Local Area Networking (Optical LAN) has begun, leveraging the cost, power, and space benefits of an all-fiber infrastructure. Compared to legacy copper Ethernet networks, Optical LAN is more reliable and secure, and it eliminates future infrastructure upgrades. The Tellabs Optical LAN solution is purpose-built for high-capacity, high-performance enterprise networks.
Tellabs Optical LAN, based on gigabit passive optical networking (GPON) technology, saves you up to 70% of CapEx, 80% of power requirements and 90% of space requirements. Our highly reliable and secure network delivers data, voice, and video services on one platform. And it's a green alternative to the traditional Ethernet LAN.
