Flexible, resilient and scalable
Tellabs Optical LAN is more flexible, resilient and scalable compared to traditional LAN architecture since an OLAN design matches modern traffic patterns while minimizing equipment and optical-to-electrical conversions. With less minimized equipment, modules and ports, this all translates to optimized operational efficiencies, greater reliability and better security. An OLAN enjoys 99.999% network up-time (5 minutes annual downtime) and a cost-effective 99.9999% option is available. An Optical LAN can also deliver greater density of gigabit Ethernet connectivity with less physical space impact in data centers, telecommunications rooms and cable pathways..
Global policies, control and orchestration
OLAN provides unified management, streamlined service delivery, automated provisioning, troubleshooting and monitoring on a global scale. Network orchestration and automation is provided through software-defined resources that are dynamically allocated based on real-time requirements. This allows for faster installation, operational tasks and daily moves, adds and changes. Discovery mechanisms and quick views of the total LAN system, ONTs, subtended devices, services, users, bandwidth, QoS and security policies allow IT to be more efficient, do more with less and handle IT skill set and head count reductions..
Minimizes malicious and negligent events
Optical LAN minimizes malicious and negligent human errors, directly improving the LAN’s operational efficiency, reliability and security. Centralized intelligence and management reduces human error and misuse by promoting machine-to-machine and process consistency. Policy consistency is achieved through global policies and profiles that are distributed to all locations. Employee training is improved via set privileges, capture of actions and online help.
