Increase In Passive Optical LAN Key Metrics Drives New Gartner Research

Gartner has just announced updated research to its long-standing coverage of Passive Optical LAN.  This update was triggered by the steady increase in client inquiries that Gartner has received about Passive Optical LAN, combined with the growth in the ecosystem of system integrators, solution providers, and equipment manufacturers supporting Passive Optical LAN’s escalating rate of market adoption.


Gartner, a highly respected international technology research and advisory company, has reaffirmed its’ admiration for Passive Optical LAN with its recent release of their research report “Passive Optical LAN: Determine If It’s Suitable for Your LAN Infrastructure“. Gartner has leveraged its analysis of the enterprise LAN market during briefings with equipment vendors and system integrators, as well as Gartner’s knowledge gained from many enterprise client inquiries on Passive Optical LAN. It should not be surprising that the research confirms that Passive Optical LAN can be a lower-cost alternative to the traditional copper-based switched Ethernet architecture that is ideally suited to future-proof the IT infrastructure for inevitable Wi-Fi and 10GbE advancements.
