WE’VE ALWAYS DONE IT THIS WAY. ________________________________________________ The most dangerous phrase in the language is, "We've always done it this way." ~ Grace HopperGrace Hopper Grace Stewart 4 THE 7 MOST EXPENSIVE BUSINESS WORDS IN THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE
WHAT IS ENTERPRISE PON OR POL? PON, POL, GPON are all terminology used to refer to Fibre based transport. Also known as FTTX. We are focusing on the Fibre to the Desk solution aka Enterprise PON or Passive Optical LAN. Designed to support multi-application environment Alternative to the traditional layer-2 copper based LAN infrastructure. ITU Industry Standard (FSAN) Based on the latest Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) technology Broadband Passive Optical Networking – G983.x Gigabit Passive Optical Networking – 984.x

Highest Reliability and Security Future-proof the infrastructure Disruptive TCO Customer Benefits “Eco-Friendly” IT
POL: “Eco-Friendly” Reduced Power Requirements Savings between 40% to 60% Reduced HVAC Requirement A Fortune 500 company saved about $450K on the Power distribution network (HVAC, backup etc) for a bldg project with 2000 Ethernet ports Reduction in Non-renewable materials Reduction of up to 8000 pounds of plastic and copper versus a Cat 6 install for building of 4000 Ethernet ports Floor Space Savings Traditional layer-2 solutions are bound by the 300ft Ethernet limitation Fire Load Savings Savings in Sprinkler Systems Fire Load and ceiling space savings FIBER COPPER It’s Green!
PON NEW CONSTRUCTION New LEED Certified Building. Multi floor government project, network to support voice and video. Limited IDF closet space. Closet based ONT’s used to support conference room ports and WiFI ports. Desk mounted ONT’s used to support majority of network Allotted closet space would not support the required traditional ethernet based network. The designed PON network was able to easily fit in the allotted space and support all the customers requirements. RESULTS – Customer was able to easily learn how to manage a PON network and is happy with the management capabilities of the network.
Sardis Secondary School Built 1994 Student Population 1457 Staff 116 Pre PON Network Services Offering Category 5 Ethernet Full Cable Pathways No possible upgrade to Category 6a without adding new conduit.
Increase port capacity within classrooms Projectors and wireless access points required a port. Expand wireless services BYOD initiative will impact wireless infrastructure Improve overall network performance The site was experiencing packet loss and poor performance once the devices on the network were set to 1 Gbps. NETWORK REQUIREMENTS
