Fiber to the Home (FTTH) is a broadband network architecture using optical fiber to provide all or part of the local loop used for last mile telecommunications by Service Providers to residents or commercial customers.
The cost of transmitting a single phone conversation over fiber optics is only about 1% the cost of transmitting it over copper wire. The biggest advantage of optical fiber is that it is truly a Multi-Media platform and it support not just only voice services but also data and video on just a single strand of fiber. One such services benefiting from fiber is UniFi.
All new residential and commercial constructions are now require to have FTTH. At LANSource, we provide reliable and outstanding fiber optic cabling installation services. Our team undergoes consistent training to ensure we are constantly up to date on both the latest fiber optic technologies, and the latest communication needs for specific industries and/or applications.
PASSIVE OPTICAL NETWORK (PON)
Virtually everyone who works in an office environment is struggling with the enterprise-wide mandate to do more work with less money and resources.
For corporate information technology managers, the do-more-with-less dilemma manifests itself in the challenge to meet the networking needs of the enterprise with extremely limited and decreasing budgets, personnel, and building space – all while ensuring that a decrease in resources does not equal a decrease in the enterprise’s network performance.
In order to optimize limited resources, based on the same proven FTTH technology, Passive Optical Network is being deploy in the enterprise.
Passive Optical Network (PON) is a point-to-multipoint network in which a single aggregation switch provides more than 7,000 IP voice, data, and video network connections to any Ethernet-based device or system.
Passive Optical LAN (POL) is the end-to-end fi ber optic infrastructure used for indoor Passive Optical Networks (PONs), that takes a single strand of singlemode fi ber from the Data Center all the way to the individual desk or end device location.
The benefits of Passive Optical LAN (POL)
Implementing a Passive Optical LAN in lieu of a traditional copper Ethernet LAN provides dramatic savings in total cost of ownership, both in terms of capital and operating expenditures.
GPON, the technology on which Passive Optical LANs are based, was initially designed for carriers. And while the idea of a carrier-based technology might conjure images of complicated switching system, the truth is that GPON is deliberately uncomplicated.
A Passive Optical LAN is inherently more secure than an Ethernet LAN for the simple reason that optical fiber does not conduct electricity as copper does. Electrically based services, unfortunately, are known points of security risk.
In the technology industry, the term “carrier-class” has become synonymous with “extremely reliable.” To that end, IT managers are well aware that equipment vendors tend to overuse the term in their marketing materials, even if their products are not truly carrier class.
Eliminating the need for distribution and workgroup switches means eliminating the current energy needs and corresponding carbon footprint associated with the many thousands of kilowatt hours of power and cooling systems usage on each floor of every building on campus in operation 24 hours a day, 365 days per year.
