Passive Optical LANs (POLs)
Passive Optical LANS
A passive optical network (PON) or Passive Optical LAN (POL) is a telecommunications network that uses point-to-multipoint fiber to the end-points in which unpowered optical splitters are used to enable a single optical fiber to serve multiple end-points, eliminating the need for active electronics between the main equipment room and the work areas.
For some network applications, POL solutions can offer a cost-effective, green architecture that brings the speed of fiber to your desktop. The videos below provides an overview of Passive Optical LANs.
