Tellabs FlexSym® OLT-mini, with a Passive Optical Local Area Network (LAN) design

Tellabs FlexAir™ combines wireless access points, cloud-based intelligent management, and our world renown Optical LAN for a simplified and unified enterprise network solution.

Carrollton, Texas. November 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Tellabs, the leading provider of Passive Optical Network (PON) solutions, along with Prime Electrical Services, a full-service electrical company, installed Tellabs FlexSym® OLT-mini, with a Passive Optical Local Area Network (LAN) design, at Coastline Church’s multi-functional acreage in Carlsbad, California.

Coastline Church requires a contemporary wired and wireless network to support modern church going activities. The network supports activities both inside the buildings, as well as events outside under the sunny skies of San Diego County. During these events, the security of the guests, and their digital online experience, is of great importance. Yet, the limited IT staff tasked with operating the network needs to do so with minimal intervention.

These were the three key decision points that steered Coastline Church to install a Passive Optical LAN design with the Tellabs FlexSym OLT-mini, such as:

  • Flexible design options for wired and wireless within and outside connectivity
  • Strict safety and security for our congregation, visitors, and employees
  • Limited IT staff touches through automation that creates operational efficiencies

This combination delivered unique qualities to help Coastline Church achieve network design, security, and IT staff operational benefits.

The future-proof aspect of the Tellabs FlexSym OLT-mini and Passive Optical LAN is very exciting for us,” said Josh McCaskill, Coastline Church Executive Director. “We already knew that fiber cabling was better than copper, yet when Tellabs Optical LAN was presented to us, we were reassured that the cybersecurity advantages of this fiber network meant we can also ensure the safety of families’ data and of our employees.”

It is great to see Coastline Church take advantage of Tellabs Optical LAN and the Tellabs FlexSym OLT-mini PLUS for indoor and outdoor connectivity, long reaches plus the small deployment design flexibilities,” said Rich Schroder, Tellabs President and CEO.

Prime Electrical appreciated the opportunity to install this innovative fiber-based infrastructure that allowed church members, guest and staff the flexibility to simultaneously connect in Coastline’s hybrid environment,” said Chris McConnell, Prime Electrical Project Manager.
