Passive Optical LAN
Cara in association with our market leading hardware partners implement the full range of POL solutions. POL essentially offers customers high speed networking with exceptionally low running costs. It offers savings in 3 distinct areas:
Deployment (typical application – over 250 users on a greenfield site).
As the product is fibre based it can be tailored to offer power users guaranteed bandwidth and does not suffer the same distance constraints of a copper deployment. Additionally typically only one network room per campus is required; two if diverse routes should be required
The implementation of POL solutions with hardware sourced, initially,from Tellabs. Tellabs are currently the market leader in the manufacture of POL equipment. POL offers customers high speed networking with very low running costs.It offers savings in 3 distinct areas: containment, power consumption and deployment cost (Typical application – over 250 users in a Greenfield site).
It can be tailored to offer power users guaranteed bandwidth and, as it is deployed on fibre, it does not suffer the same distance constraints of a copper deployment. Typically only one network room per campus is required, two if diverse routes are required. We deploy POL small-scale deployments as well as large implementations –something which Tellabs does not.
