Optical LANs: A transformative solution for a connected future

Passive optical LANs are dramatically faster, more efficient, sustainable, cost effective, scalable and adaptable to future requirements than traditional copper-based infrastructure. Optical LANs eliminate the distance constraints, power requirements and heat dispersion issues of copper. They deliver increased network security, performance and operational efficiency. There is no doubt: This is the future of networks.

Connecting is more than switches and cables. Connecting is expertise, applied. Tellabs helps customers connect through Optical LANs that deliver five key advantages over legacy copper LAN technologies

  • Simple
  • Secure
  • Scalable
  • Stable
  • and Smart

Simple

Optical LANs are simpler than copper. There is less equipment and cabling to house and maintain. Centralized management makes changes easier, faster and more cost effective. Fiber’s ability to converge multiple services into one medium dramatically simplifies operations.

Secure

Optical LANs are immune to electromagnetic, radio frequency and electromagnetic pulse interference, and far less susceptible to intrusion than copper. For high-security requirements, Tellabs’ All-Secure™ PON solution offers armored and alarmed fiber with 24/7/365 monitoring.

Scalable

Optical LANs’ endpoint capacity surpasses copper by a factor of four. Single-mode fiber cable used in optical LANs can reach 30 kilometers (18 miles) without signal regeneration. Superior density and reach, combined with lower installation costs, mean maximum scalability.

Stable

Optical LANs typically deliver carrier-class 99.999 percent availability. Redundancy and distribution network options further protect availability. And optical cabling is futureproof, with the bandwidth to support migration to nextgen technologies without requiring replacement.

Smart

Fewer electronics, less cabling, no telecom closets and lower power consumption mean reduced network costs. Greater density and reach along with future-proof cable bandwidth mean scalability to meet future needs. Add carrier grade reliability and black-ops-level security, and it’s clear that optical LANs are the smart choice.
