Amtrak upgrades communication networks to Optical LAN

Ed Sullivan, a technical writer with 30-years of experience, recently published an article in Cabling, Installation & Maintenance magazine, detailing how Amtrak has overhauled its communications systems by renovating the network infrastructure at several of its major terminals. This action clearly signals that Amtrak is all aboard with passive Optical LAN technology.

In the CI&M magazine article, Amtrak sites several important reasons why they chose to move forward with Optical LAN, including:

  • Supporting green/sustainability initiatives
  • Far less space, energy and cooling needs
  • Offering superior scalability
  • And, all of the above results in less capital and operational costs
