NEW YORK, Dec. 31, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Passive optical LAN (POL) is a Layer-2 transport medium, built with passive optical network (PON) technology, which provides converged data, video, and voice services at gigabit speeds over a single strand of fiber to the user's location. These solutions make use of a number of passive optical components. Majority of these components including optical cables, optical couplers, optical power splitters, optical encoders, patch cords and pigtails, optical connectors, optical amplifiers, optical transceivers, fixed and variable optical attenuators, optical circulators, wavelength division multiplexers/de-multiplexers, and optical filters can now be found in use in FTTH applications and current data networks. These components also find use in applications such as fiber in the loop (FITL), interoffice, loop feeder, hybrid fiber-coaxial cable (HFC), synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) systems and synchronous optical network (SONET).
Passive optical local area network (POL) solutions are more environment-friendly than the traditional copper-based Ethernet local area network. Instead of using workgroup switches, the POL solution uses optical splitters. By eliminating the workgroup switches, it adheres to HVAC standards, thereby eradicating the usage of thousands of KW energy and acting as a more cost-effective option. Furthermore, since there is no need for rack-mounted switches, usage of non-renewable electrical equipment is minimized and power consumption reduced.
Passive optical LAN (POL) helps in saving the total cost of ownership (TCO) by a huge amount, as the cost of installation of the equipment is low. In addition, the highly-efficient equipment promises high return on investments. This low cost of ownership is achieved with POL using a highly-centralized distribution network, which is passive in nature. With the savings in both capital and operating expenditure, POL offers considerable saving in the total cost of ownership. In traditional networks, network upgradation and patches lead to a large amount of operational expenditure. However, in POL, network upgradation is much easier, as it uses the existing fiber optic cable and only the electronics are to be replaced, rather than replacing the whole infrastructure, which helps to save 75% of the expenditure.
