Corporate Campuses

In an era where almost any device can connect to the internet, organizations depend on their network to make better and faster decisions, service their customers, and support all the processes to run their businesses.  Passive Optical LAN (POL) delivers the highest performance at the best value for high-speed data, voice and video applications for corporate environments. It can be deployed in offices, rooms or other facilities, delivering comprehensive connectivity for any Local Area Networking requirement.

We needed a broadband network with screaming speeds that would showcase the benefits of fiber optic solutions while also supporting the needs of our employees now and far into the future. A Gigabit Passive Optical Network was the answer, and DZS provided the key access solutions to make it happen.

DZS has a wide array of technologies that are designed for Fiber-To-The-Edge (FTTX) applications in corporate campuses where several attached devices and capabilities are required at every desk. These multi-port configurations can support PCs, VoiP, camera, WiFi, telephone, fax and video services all at once, using only one device. With throughput capabilities of up to 1 Gbps for every desk, the DZS Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution can provide your building with high-speed triple-play services, and support the needs of your employees now and far into the future.

Our POL solution, called FiberLAN, delivers secure, high-speed Internet access to businesses in support of a variety of services including: WiFi access in rooms and common areas, remote learning capabilities, Smart Boards, interactive projectors, workstations and more.

Based on carrier-class equipment, Passive Optical LAN typically provides 99.999% availability with redundant and high availability options to increase uptime even further.

With Passive Optical LAN, data can be transmitted through a strand of single mode fiber for up to 20 km (12 miles), thus eliminating the inherent distance limitation of traditional copper cable. POL provides a modern, future-ready, and environmentally friendly network infrastructure.
