FiberLANTM, the New Enterprise Solution

By building fiber based LAN infrastructures with seamless centralized management and network control IY networks are one step closer to a pure Software Defined Enterprise. Software-defined networking (SDN) is a significant trend in the management of IT Enterprise infrastructure and network design. Fiber based LAN SDN is attractive to many businesses due to significant cost equipment savings, improved network performance, increased productivity and improved security. Welcome to FiberLANTM from DZS.

  • Secure Fiber LAN networks – High speed access with built in security.

  • Scalable connected devices – Gateways, IOT and core networking platforms
  • Encryption and Cybersecurity – from any “secure” device or location
  • Real-time backups – 24/7 availability
  • Disaster recovery – always available


and the Fiber Revolution

Passive Optical LAN is a new LAN deployment architecture offering superior technological advantages over copper LAN deployments. It is a smarter way to structure a LAN, because:

  • It simplifies the Local Area Network infrastructure
  • It simplifies network moves, adds, and changes
  • Is not limited by the distance and bandwidth constraints of twisted copper pair networks
  • Is secure by design, based on optical fiber and built-in encryption

Passive Optical LAN vs. Legacy Architectures

Passive Optical LAN architectures provide tremendous improvements in the design and deployment of local area networks. Composed almost entirely of single mode fiber optic cable, a Passive Optical LAN can span for 20 km (12.5 miles) or more depending on the optics and splitter ratios deployed. While not all networks may need to span such distances, it is particularly advantageous for multi-story buildings and campus networks where mid-span switching equipment is eliminated entirely. Even single building networks can take advantage of these flexible distances by no longer requiring a telecommunications closet or switch every 300 feet as is the case with legacy network architectures.

  • Passive Optical LANs can span 20 km (12.5 miles) or more
  • Reduces the operational footprint (less complexity)
  • Allows RF video deployment on a converged fiber network (no need for hard-line coax or amplifiers)

FiberLANTM Architecture Advantage

Security Advantage

FiberLANTM  is based on centralized intelligence and management control. This enables security policies to be distributed efficiently. Centralized command and control and central intelligence reduces human errors and enhances security policies

  • FiberLANTM provides AES 128bit encryption downstream.
  •  FiberLANTM Extenders store no permanent configuration or user information.
  • FiberLANTM network devices provide highly physical management access.
  • Fiber is immune to crosstalk typically found in copper wiring
  • Fiber is unaffected by electromagnetic interferences (EMI) and electromagnetic pulses (EMP).
  • Optical cabling is inherently more secure than copper cabling.

Tangible contributions to environmental green initiatives: With no power consumption, minimal HVAC needs and reduced equipment needs, passive optical LAN provides stronger green benefits to enterprises compared to copper-based networks. This technology supports LEED and Green Globe certifications.

Reduced spacing requirements: Unlike copper-based LAN need for telecom rooms, passive optical LAN uses very little space in a building due to its reduced equipment and cabling requirements and limited powering and cooling needs. This means space savings for enterprises that can convert this extra space into more comfortable areas or in revenue-generating areas. 

Superior scalability and availability: To keep up with growing connectivity needs, modern network backbone technologies need to deliver scalability to accommodate more bandwidth needs as well as availability that keeps business going, with no unplanned interruption. In both situations, passive optical LAN provides superior rates when compared to copper-based LAN.

Time-saving opportunities to IT teams: Due to its reduced component needs and network simplicity, passive optical LAN requires little time to be deployed and maintained. Another time-saving benefit when compared to copper-based LAN, is its certification period. Typically, it takes three and a half days of training, compared to several weeks commonly required for a copper-based network.

Lower capital and operational costs: As a result of less equipment and lower energy and cooling needs, passive optical LAN is simpler to deploy and to maintain, delivering greater cost reductions both short and long-term to enterprises. In another significant cost benefit, POL requires less frequent upgrading, every 10 years or more compared to every 5-7 years with traditional enterprise  copper wiring.
