CDCA Defense Summit 2021 and Optical LAN

by | Dec 6, 2021 | Event

CDCA Defense Summit in Charleston, South Carolina

Charleston Defense Contractors Association (CDCA) Defense Summit is a premier military event, and Tellabs will be there leading conversations concerning how Passive Optical LAN can improve cyber security and the cyber hardening of both defense and civilian networks. This 14th annual CDCA Defense Summit will be held on December 7-9 and Tellabs (booth 234) will be displaying military-grade network solutions that improve IT physical infrastructure defensibility.

Tellabs Optical LAN government solutions play vital roles in providing a more secure network inside buildings and across extended campus, enabling security policies and procedures to be implemented consistently, with fewer human errors and across a more reliable network. Furthermore, Passive Optical LAN has the distinction of being one of the technologies offering promise to US Department of Defense as stated in the DoD Digital Modernization Strategy Plan for FY19-23, because it delivers:

  • Lower network infrastructure, operational and maintenance costs
  • Less space with smaller, higher-capacity, single mode fiber cable
  • Extended high-speed connectivity (>20 kilometers)
  • And, fiber cabling is far more secure than copper cabling
