For Erickson Living staff, and the active senior residents, it is critical to be able to access their network from both wired and wireless connections across their sprawling senior living retirement community. That means connecting to a high-performance network infrastructure from their residential homes, business offices, fitness centers, social clubs, restaurants, salons, pharmacies, general stores and healthcare services – 24/7/365 always on and always connected.
Tellabs has installed a fiber-based technology, called Passive Optical LAN. Optical LAN, that assures unlimited bandwidth, breaks down traditional reach limitations of copper, and interfaces seamlessly with today’s IP/Ethernet centric voice, video and high-speed internet services. These contemporary network services include wireless, entertainment, business operations, security systems, retail, healthcare and smart building intelligence.
