Passive Optical LAN Overview & Benefits – Association for Passive Optical LAN

Passive Optical LAN Technical Overview – Technical Advantages

Passive Optical LAN is a new application of a proven access network solution. It is a better way to structure a LAN, because:

  • It flattens the Local Area Network
  • It simplifies network moves, adds, and changes
  • Is not limited by the distance and bandwidth constraints of twisted pair networks
  • Is secure by design, based on optical fiber and built-in encryption

Economic Advantages

Passive Optical LAN provides substantial savings in CapEx and OpEx compared to legacy LAN designs.

  • Can eliminate wiring closets
  • Eliminates the need for midspan electronics, power, and cooling infrastructure
  • Uses smaller, lighter, less expensive cables to reduce pathway and space requirements
  • Virtually eliminates the need to refresh cabling infrastructures
  • As technology evolves, only the active endpoints need a refresh
