Passive Optical LAN To Be Deployed By Vision Technologies In Two Major Projects

by | Mar 3, 2017 | Blog

We all know Passive Optical LAN is a great solution for new construction projects, but did you know that it is also a fantastic option for renovation, restoration and upgrades to older buildings? Two recent high-profile wins for Vision Technologies demonstrate the incredible versatility that Optical LAN provides.

In Othello, Washington, Optical LAN will be built as part of a brand-new 78,000 square ft. clinic being constructed by the Columbia Basin Health Association (CBHA), and will later be extended to an entire 20-acre campus. The Passive Optical LAN solution will support over 1,300 Ethernet ports and give CBHA scalable and secure access to all the technological requirements of a modern health clinic, from electronic medical and dental records to security cameras, satellite television, VoIP, and Wi-Fi.

In Cincinnati, OLAN will be a vital part of the restoration of the historic Cincinnati Union Terminal, among the last of the great train stations in the United States. Unlike traditional copper-based LAN, there is no need for visible conduit boxes or raceways in halls or walls, which is ideal for historical structures that cannot be opened or penetrated. OLAN will be introduced in the Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC), and will give visitors vastly improved access to the internet as well as prepare the museum for the connectivity demands of the future.

Both of these prestigious projects were awarded to our valued partner Vision Technologies (2016 Tellabs North America Partner of the Year). Their support and advocacy of Passive Optical LAN are among the many reasons they were awarded the Tellabs Partner of the Year (North America) award at the 2017 Tellabs Partner Conference (#TLPC2017).
