The GPON-based FiberLAN Optical LAN Solution (OLS) suite from Zhone Technologies  supports delivery to multi-level, multi-unit commercial and industrial complexes via fiber – an alternate to existing copper-based Ethernet Switch Local Area Networking (LAN) infrastructure.

According to CMO Brian Caskey, “Service providers needed a simpler, faster, cost-effective, environmentally-friendly alternative to existing copper-based Ethernet Switched LAN infrastructure, and that’s where the carrier-grade FiberLAN suite fits. By leveraging our deep industry experience and the rapid adoption of cloud-based technologies, we are able to offer a highly-competitively-priced solution that allows our customers to pass along savings directly to their customers.” ? ?

Zhone’s FiberLAN is a high-performance, high-density GPON-based OLS delivering high-speed data, voice and video. The converged solution is scalable for hotel rooms or for desktops and workstations deployed in offices, rooms and factories, delivering connectivity for any LAN requirement. “Enabling converged triple-play services over a single strand of fiber, the solution reduces the LAN infrastructure cabling and electronics to a fraction of the requirements of a traditional Ethernet LAN solution,” Zhone adds.

Benefits of the solution include:

>> Elimination of need for riser closets, dedicated cooling and cross-connects;
>> Reduction of overall power, cooling, installation, facilities and management costs;
>> Simplification of moves, adds and changes; and
>> Minimization of troubleshooting and maintenance issues and costs.

Zhone is showing this solution this week at the CTIA show in New Orleans.
