What is Passive Optical LAN?
Passive Optical LANs (POLs) bring fibre-optic connectivity to every device within your premises – eliminating the need for multiple copper-based systems. It consists of an optical line terminal (OLT), an optical splitter, and optical network terminals.
The results? Voice, video and data IP services carried over a single high capacity, high security infrastructure, removing the need for remote cabinets and comms rooms and ensuring optimal performance for every user and every device.
POLs are suitable for a wide variety of sectors and settings, with benefits achieved from the moment of switch-on.
