Always Connected Technology in High Demand at Erickson Living Communities

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.

Tellabs Multi-Dwelling Units (MDU) solution provides centralized intelligence and boasts a speedy network installation, with management and automation; fortifies network policies and procedures that improve the speed of moves, adds and changes for IT staff. These attributes all contribute to reduction in human error for the network administrators.

Overall, Erickson Living has found the key highlights of deploying Tellabs solution to be:

  • High throughput
  • Increased Security
  • Synergies with wireless
  • Convergence of technologies on one network
  • Always on and always connected solution
