Passive Optical LAN

Passive Optical LAN solutions are changing the way businesses operate their local area networks.  Following the trends of server and data center consolidation, hosted virtual desktops (HVDs) and cloud computing, Passive Optical LANs enable the evolved requirements for high performance business services.  Centralization of network processing to the data center (and cloud) is driven by Big Data and BYOD (bring-your-own-device), where less than 10% of enterprise data traffic remains local.

Enterprise business and corporations, higher education and K-12, healthcare facilities, retail and manufacturing, and mixed-use developments around the world are now benefiting from Passive Optical LANs.  These businesses are saving up to 50% deployment costs, 70% ownership costs, 80% power utilization, 90% space usage when compared to legacy copper-base Ethernet LANs.

Passive Optical LAN meets the realities of today’s IT departments – do more with less.  Reduced capital budgets and reduced headcount must meet the increased demand for more bandwidth and more productivity while meeting corporate sustainability goals.  While this may be a losing battle for traditional active Ethernet networks, Passive Optical LANs enable higher performance, lower costs, resulting in a more environmentally sustainable solution.
