TAMPA, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--BICSI Winter Conference and Exhibition, Booth #233 – Today, 3M
unveiled a portfolio of Passive
Optical LAN Solutions for the enterprise LAN. The future-ready
fiber-to-the-desktop LAN technology is gaining traction within the
industry as the alternative to traditional copper-based Layer 2 Ethernet
Passive Optical LAN is being adopted at a fast pace by large government
and enterprise LAN customers attracted to the benefits of significant
cost savings including up to 70 percent reduction of equipment and
infrastructure, up to 80 percent less power costs because there is no
active component required on every floor in the telecom room, and up to
90 percent less space and material requirements.
Delivering converged high bandwidth services with no need for active
electronics between the main equipment room and the work area all over
one singlemode fiber means POLS provides a better way of networking with
the added benefit of future-proofing cabling infrastructure assets.
Overall, POL requires less equipment using less energy (compared to
traditional enterprise Ethernet LAN switches deployed over 100 Ohm
Category copper twisted pair media) which translates to lower deployment
and operating expenses for a smarter business solution.
3M draws on the experience of more than 50 years in telecommunications
to optimize the Passive Optical LAN Solutions portfolio. 3M POLS
