The Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN) has led key advocacy and education activities in 2016. APOLAN is set to make a big impact at BICSI Fall Conference in 2 weeks, and has been the subject of three articles published in prominent media outlets.
At BICSI Fall Conference, APOLAN will be actively driving advocacy and training. APOLAN’s “Fundamentals of Passive Optical LAN, a 2-day BICSI certified training that delivers 12 CEC to the successful students, has sold out every year to date. During the Exhibit Hall hours, be sure to stop by the APOLAN booth (#511) where APOLAN companies, members and leaders will be interacting with attendees promoting the global adoption of Passive Optical LANs.
As for the promotion of POL in online and printed media, ICT Today published an article that highlights key design considerations for systems integrators when deploying Passive Optical LANs for hotel environments, which are perfectly suited for this technology and where triple play services are imperative. Educause Review ran an article that covers how Passive Optical LANs support Internet of Things (IoT) growth for colleges and universities, where legacy copper-based network architectures are not keeping pace with the density and capacity demands driven by IoT. And, Facilitiesnet Insider Report distributed an article that makes the case for Passive Optical LAN offering energy and sustainability benefits for building owners, facility professionals and the IT managers supporting Smart Buildings.
