TE Connectivity's Optical LAN Solutions

by Julie Clark on December 18, 2013

Because of the rapid changes underway in both the data center and the equipment closet, new installation and maintenance techniques are being employed within enterprise applications. Passive Optical Network (PON) applications are now being deployed more often in all areas of the facility, from the data center to the desktop. TE’s Optical LAN Solution (OLS) leverages the distance and bandwidth capabilities of single mode fiber to deliver converged voice, video, data, and building automation over a single strand of fiber. OLS enables efficient management and utilization of bandwidth and offers measurable OpEx and CapEx savings and ‘green’ benefits.

Comparison: OLS vs. Traditional LAN Architectures

- OLS Provides Reduced Troubleshooting and Maintenance Costs

  • UTP/fiber networks require up to three sets of electronics, whereas OLS only requires two, the OLT and ONT

- Reduced System-Wide Maintenance Costs

  • OLS, a fiber-only system, is inherently more reliable due to the resistance to electromagnetic interference (EMI), radio frequency interference (RFI), and crosstalk

- OLS Provides Reduced Installation Costs

  • OLS offers plug-and-play installation, so no splicing or field termination is needed
  • Fiber offers greater tensile/pull strength (100-200 lbf.) as compared to copper UTP (25 lbf.)
  • OLS incorporates bend insensitive singlemode fiber for greater installation flexibility

- Reduced Life Cycle Costs

  • Optical LANs have a longer usable lifetime. As a result, your network electronics can be upgraded to the next generation to increase data without pulling new cable


How can TE's Optical LAN help you?

  • Existing equipment is replaced by a single Fiber Distribution Hub (OLH) that can be wall mounted for significant space savings
  • TE's Optical LAN Solutions reduce troubleshooting and maintenance costs
  • OLS users accumulate more power and environmental savings with OLS versus traditional LAN architectures

Additional features include:

  • Indoor and outdoor environmental protection
  • Advanced cable management
  • Time-saving cross-connect options
  • Field-proven performance and reliability
  • Pre-terminated and plug-and-play options
  • Rigorous quality standards
