Leading innovation in fiber-based connectivity for building and campus

The useful life expectancy of traditional enterprise network infrastructure is regrettably short. At each one of these technology upgrades, the equipment and cable manufacturers expected you to rip-and-replace your hardware and infrastructure. The problem is that every technology advancement introduces significant business disruption, complexity and costs.

Fiber optic technology is the safest and smartest investment. Fiber cabling is smaller, lighter and stronger, having better bend radius, higher bandwidth capacity, and longer reach. It has no electromagnetic interference impact, faster connector solutions, longer life and non-corrosive, making it more secure and less expensive.

Passive Optical LAN architecture speeds IT productivity through simplification. It reduces network vulnerability points. It offers flexible design options to economically right-size network capacity and density. POL is a smart investment for modern fiber-based connectivity inside buildings and across extended campus.
So, what else can we do with fiber?

Quick Facts

  • Fiber delivers better investment protection with superior extended life
  • Fiber infrastructure is significantly more environmentally sustainable
  • Fiber in buildings and outside plant is technology independent
  • Fiber technology offers graceful migration from gigabit to 100 gigabits
  • Fiber cabling is inherently more secure and reliable than copper
  • Singlemode fiber has no known bandwidth capacity ceiling
