Notably, the APOLAN annual members’ meeting will feature the association’s first annual APOLAN Awards ceremony.

The Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN), a non-profit organization dedicated to driving the adoption of passive optical local area network technologies, will showcase its growing success and educational expertise in booth #211 at next week's 2017 BICSI Winter Conference & Exhibition in Tampa, FL (Jan. 22-26). The association has a strong lineup of events scheduled for the show, including its popular 2-day training seminar, as well as the APOLAN annual members’ meeting, featuring the association’s first annual APOLAN Awards ceremony.

“With passive optical LAN adoption growing at a rapid pace, it is clearly a key technology in the future of ICT, which continues to be showcased by APOLAN member presence at this show,” said APOLAN technology committee chair, Sean P. Kelly, RCDD. “BICSI continues to be a strong venue to showcase how fiber-based passive optical LAN is reducing costs, improving security, and providing a flexible, nearly future-proof LAN infrastructure for modern high-performance buildings and campuses.”

As a pre-conference course, APOLAN’s Fundamentals of Passive Optical LAN, a two-day training seminar, kicks off on January 22 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. This seminar will provide an overview of the value, architecture, design and powering considerations for a passive optical LAN technology. Specific focus will be given to system components, benefits, design methodologies, power survivability using AC and DC methods, planning and commissioning of electronics, infrastructure testing, and closeout package deliverables. Attendees that complete the two-day seminar will receive 12 Continuing Education Credits (CECs) from BICSI. Attendee and seminar registration can be completed at the 2017 BICSI Winter Conference website.
