Passive Optical Networks

Improve Network Reliability and Performance

Passive Optical Networks

Passive Optical Networking (PON) is a fiber optic solution built around proven standardized data streaming and communication technology.  This network uses unpowered optical splitters to serve multiple locations.  Passive Optical LAN (POL) converges voice, video (RF or IP), data, security cameras, wireless antennas, and building management sensor over the same single-mode fiber.  Because POL scales easily, it supports from 50 to 50,000 or more end-point devices.

Benefits of Passive Optical Networks

  • 99.999% Reliability.

  • Reduction of Infrastructure Failure Points.

  • Single Management Interface.

  • Significant EMI Reductions and Immunity.

  • Increased System Performance.

Reduce Costs Dramatically

Reduced IT facility costs

  • Lower installation costs by 40 percent

  • Eliminate telecommunication riser closets

  • Elimination of Ethernet access switches

  • Reduce operations and maintenance costs by 50 percent


POL is capable of transmitting high-data rates with no active electronics in between the data center and desktop or end-user device.

The centralization of high-value IT equipment in a single location eliminates the need for the traditional workgroup switches in riser closets, reducing the electronic components comprising the network.  Fewer electronics translates into fewer failure points in the POL network and more reliability. This simplified architecture means savings of up to 40 percent on installation cost and 50 percent savings on related power, space, and cooling requirements.
