Orlando International Airport Approves Tellabs Optical LAN for South Terminal Network

The award goes to Tellabs Optical LAN who is the only bidder to demonstrate a fully functioning system as deployed at other airports similar in complexity and scale to Orlando International Airport.

Carrollton, Texas. July 28, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Tellabs, the innovation leader of Passive Optical Network (PON) solutions, announces that Tellabs® Optical LAN (OLAN) is approved and awarded by the Greater Orlando Airport Authority (GOAA).  Tellabs OLAN was selected as the mission-critical network of choice, which will provide fiber-optic telecommunications technology and deliver modern high-speed connectivity throughout Orlando International Airport South Terminal.

Passive Optical LAN architecture is favored by Orlando International Airport as the design reduces the number of communication rooms and copper wire connections needed to provide mission-critical connectivity across the vast airport property.

Tellabs is the only bidder to demonstrate a comprehensive Optical LAN solution relative to business qualifications, product capability, equipment demonstration and price proposal. In addition, Tellabs is the only firm with a fully functioning OLAN system as installed at other airports similar in complexity and scale. This unanimous selection is also driven by the fact that Tellabs demonstrated:

  • Multiple International Airport References
  • Complete automated system fail-over and recovery
  • Pass All Types of Orlando Airport Data Services
  • Support of IP Digital Audio over Optical LAN
  • Architecture Matches Orlando Airport’s Preferred Design

Throughout the evaluation process GOAA clearly witnessed Tellabs’ comprehensive features, greatest number of airport customers, most diverse experience, and widest industry interoperability,” said Kristen Gonzalez, Tellabs Vice-President of Enterprise Commercial Sales. “We are excited to move on to the next phase of this long-term relationship to prove our commitment to a customer-first culture, and award-winning support for GOAA and the extended Orlando International Airport team.
