OCC POL Featured in Cabling Installation & Maintenance:
September 15, Cabling Installation & Maintenance featured OCC's new POL solution in the article, "How a passive optical LAN improves network performance, flexibility."
See below for an excerpt. Click here for the full article.
“Many users of fiber-optic cable services such as Verizon’s FiOS in their homes or businesses are, perhaps unknowingly, quite familiar with the basic benefits of the POL,” explains A.G. Melson at Optical Cable Corporation (OCC).
“Because these cable TV providers have fiber-optic backbones that can travel great distances without a degradation of signal [which occurs with copper-based cable], they can deliver higher-bandwidth services such as high-definition TV, high-speed Internet, and digital telephone—individually or bundled,” Melson explains.
OCC is a manufacturer of a broad line of data-communication cabling and connectivity solutions. In the POL arena, the company offers specifically designed products to cover the entire network “signal path” from the OLT (optical line terminal) all the way to the ONT (optical network terminal) next to individual users’ workstations or desktops.
When: October 22, 2014 at 2 p.m. ET
Who should attend: Anyone interested in the benefits of POL.
Passive Optical LAN (POL) is a new cabling infrastructure for telecommunications networks that replaces traditional structured cabling, with single mode fiber optic cable. Derived from fiber to the home (FTTH) technology, POL has been scaled to bring cost effective, green connectivity to the enterprise by replacing or integrating with existing network architecture.When planning to improve or expand enterprise connectivity, there are a multitude of factors and needs to consider, as well as problems to overcome with legacy LANs.
Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, October 22 at 2 p.m. ET where we will cover:
- Fundamentals of Passive Optical LAN,
- The components included (both passive and the active)
- Comparison between Passive Optical LAN and legacy networks.
- The value and benefits of installing Passive Optical LAN from a cost savings, performance and future proof perspective.
