CIO and system architect discuss fiber-optic cabling, passive optical LAN practicalities

On-demand webinar features viewpoints from the CIO of a law firm and the principal from an engineering firm, discussing passive optical LAN deployments.

This optical line terminal (OLT) is part of a passive optical LAN (POL). A POL uses singlemode fiber-optic cabling between an OLT and optical network terminals (ONTs). The Association for Passive Optical LAN hosted a webinar in which a POL user and architect discussed their experiences with the technology. That webinar is available for viewing on-demand.

A web seminar now available for on-demand viewing features firsthand experience, insights and opinions of passive optical LAN (POL) deployments from an architect who designs these fiber-optic cabling networks as well as a chief information office (CIO) who has worked with one for more than a year. Hosted by the Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN), the webinar titled “Passive Optical LAN: Enabling the Modern IT” is a roundtable discussion with Ken Adams, CIO of Baltimore/Washington-based law firm Miles & Stockbridge, and with Mike Kerwin, principal at R.G. Vanderveil Engineers.

Adams offers a real-world case study, describing the lessons learned from his IT department’s implementation of a POL for more than a year. Kerwin describes the installation and ongoing operation of POLs, including the technology’s unique aspects that are worthy of architect/engineer/consultant consideration. The discussion is hosted and moderated by Dave Cunningham, who is director of business development at Tellabs and president of APOLAN.

In describing the on-demand webinar, the APOLAN said, “Attendees will learn about how the advancements in fiber-optic technologies can help them build a modern high-performance LAN that can better support the unique IT services and applications of the third millennium, while saving money, energy and space for their respective businesses and end customers.”
