The role of broadband in the enterprise has changed from a best-effort data service to a “utility-like” essential service that can make-or-break an organization.
Enterprises are undergoing massive transformations in an effort to keep pace with the unprecedented broadband upgrade super-cycle spurred by next-generation technologies and skyrocketing connectivity demands.
The enterprise broadband market globally has two distinguishing characteristics: Multi-gigabit connectivity is becoming a standard, and the ability for enterprises to meet rapidly changing connectivity demands can mean the difference between business success or failure. In both cases the global pandemic has transformed broadband into an “essential” service that should be viewed like power and water.
Enterprises are rapidly transforming their networks and their business models to meet this demand. Hotels, stadiums, commercial properties and educational campuses all need to maintain world-class connectivity experiences, thus require a leap to next-generation fiber services while transforming the experience of their tenants and guests. The goal is multi-gigabit speeds and open networks that can leverage software to deliver new services with agility and efficiency.
DZS has a long history of partnering with and enabling many of the most successful enterprises around the world to rapidly roll out differentiated gigabit and now multi-gigabit services in their properties efficiently and effectively.
Let DZS help you to unleash hyper-fast broadband and deliver you the ultimate end-user experience.
By building fiber based LAN infrastructures with seamless centralized management and network control your network is 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.
Passive Optical LAN is a new deployment architecture offering superior technology advantages over copper LAN deployments.
It is a smarter way to structure a LAN, because:
Unleash hyper-fast enterprise broadband with DZS.
In addition to advantages over traditional copper LAN solutions made possible by the 20 Kilometer (km) fiber reach (particularly valuable in multi-story buildings; eliminates need for closets or switches every 300 feet), Passive Optical LAN has security, deployment media and economic benefits.
POL’s centralized management and control enables efficient policy distribution, secure data encryption, and is immune to typical copper interferences like crosstalk and EMP.
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.
Less equipment and lower energy and cooling needs make passive optical LAN simple to deploy and to maintain, delivering greater cost reductions both short and long-term to enterprises.
Because it is passive fiber-based, as technology evolves, only the active endpoints need a refresh.
The Association of Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN) provides advocacy, education and resources to companies, institutions and communities who want to deploy the best networks via fiber.
This member-led association collaborates with industry allies to propel fiber deployment forward for a better broadband future around the world.
