APOLAN at BICSI 2022

APOLAN and member companies AECOM and ITConnect Inc. kicked off this year's BICSI Winter Conference by presenting the association's "Fundamentals of Passive Optical LAN" masterclass on Jan. 30-31. The seminar provided an overview of the value, architecture, design and powering considerations for a passive optical LAN technology.

Furthermore, the presentation focused on system components, benefits, design methodologies, power survivability using AC and DC methods, planning and commissioning of electronics, infrastructure testing and closeout package deliverables for passive optical LANs.

Attendees who completed the two-day seminar received (12) BICSI Continuing Education Credits.

APOLAN also shared its POL expertise as a BICSI exhibitor, where winter conference attendees could meet APOLAN members, learn about the power of POL technology, and find out how APOLAN's education, advocacy and membership help advance POL technology adoption.
