3 Buildings, 1 Optical LAN And 1 Network Manager Delivers Savings For Sinclair Holdings

by | Jun 26, 2017 | Blog

HITEC 2017 is just getting started and Tellabs (HITEC booth #1750) continues to reach-out to the attendees to educate them on Passive Optical LAN (OLAN) and how it is a cost-effective means to improve hoteliers’ bottom line.

You can find an example of this in our Sinclair Holdings news release, and matching Optical LAN case study, covering three buildings in downtown Fort Worth, Texas which are all served by one data center, one Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and one Tellabs Panorama PON Manager. The Sinclair Building, the STS Tower and the Hotel Texas Annex are a great showcase of how one cost-effective fiber-based Local Area Network (LAN) design serving multiple buildings. Cost saving happens because Tellabs Optical LAN has the ability to support four times the gigabit Ethernet port density in 90% less space and 300 times better reach than traditional copper-based LANs. Powering innovation saves money by leveraging 48 Volt Direct Current (DC) low-power IoT end-devices and powering them with a combination of touch-safe packetized Digital Power and Power over Ethernet (PoE). And finally, the single network management provides centralized intelligence and centralized control from 1 console and 1 screen, while promoting plug-and-play for easy IT network operations.

All of this is made possible under the skilled guidance of the VT Group. The VT Group (2016 Tellabs Global Partner of the Year) designed and delivered of these innovative network connectivity, powering and management solutions for Sinclair Holdings. VT Group provided the logistics support, engineering design and analysis, and problem solving expertise for all of the Sinclair buildings.
