The Enterprise Network Challenges
Passive Optical LAN benefits of simple, stable, secure and scalable, often extend beyond the reach of small network operators. These same smaller network operators struggle with resource constraints related to staff, technology and money.
- Staff – There are IT staff challenges of few IT staff on-site 24/7 or even none, and there is the greater industry struggles of IT staff skillset gap and labor shortage
- Technology – Lack of expert IT oversight impairs the ability to design, build and operation new modern IT equipment, infrastructure and technologies
- Money – Smaller locations means smaller budgets for IT equipment and infrastructure
Therefore, these smaller resource constrained workplaces cannot take advantage of modern IT technologies do to perceived complexities in ordering, installing and operating a contemporary fiber-based LAN. Yet, these same small, understaffed, risk averse and price sensitive locations still need a modern IT technologies today (e.g. OLAN, IoT, wireless, cloud, SDN) and still require a graceful migration to future IT demands (e.g. greater densities & speeds, 10Gbps, 40Gbps). The Tellabs 1131 Express Bundle breaks down these barriers and makes the future network available today to the small operator in a very easy to deploy and cost effect manner.
