The Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN), the nonprofit organization devoted to the education and global adoption of optical local area networks, is showcasing the latest POL technology developments and the association's recent initiatives at this week's BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition 2023 (Feb. 5-9) in Tampa, Florida.

At BICSI in Tampa, APOLAN and member companies AECOM, ITConnect Inc., Nokia and Tellabs will kick off the conference by presenting the Fundamentals of Passive Optical LAN master class on Feb. 5-6. This educational seminar provides an overview of the value, architecture, design and powering considerations for optical LAN technology.

The presentation specifically focuses on system components, benefits, design methodologies, power survivability using AC and DC methods, planning and commissioning of electronics, infrastructure testing and closeout package deliverables. Conference attendees who complete the two-day seminar receive (12) BICSI Continuing Education Credits (CECs).

Also in Tampa, APOLAN will also share its POL expertise as an exhibitor in its BICSI booth #1005, where conference attendees can meet APOLAN members, learn about the power of optical LAN technology, and find out how APOLAN's education, advocacy and membership are helping to advance fiber network adoption.

Brian Hardy, executive vice president at ITConnect and APOLAN chairman, commented:

"APOLAN looks forward to spotlighting optical LAN innovations and advancements during these events. The association will honor members' achievements, highlight the association's work to elevate fiber network adoption and educate BICSI Winter Conference attendees about the advantages and benefits of optical LAN technologies."
