Passive Optical LAN from DZS brings the benefits of fiber such as enhanced security, lower cost, space savings, lower power utilization and greater bandwidth to the hospitality industry. Imagine the space savings if all the rooms in your hotel can be served from a single 2U Optical Line Terminal (OLT) in the MDF. There is no longer a need for racks and racks of equipment and patch panels on each floor.  Engineered for performance and value, DZS’s POL solution (FiberLAN) provides the highest density access switches available in the industry saving you money and conserving valuable real estate. With our POL solution FiberLAN, you can give your guests a better-than-home experience with a highly reliable network that offers high-speed Internet and streaming video with exceptional overall performance so they are always connected. Update your infrastructure today and remove the traditional technology frustrations from the guest experience.

When planning for the hotel, my goal was to maximize my technology offerings while limiting the amount of equipment a high-speed rollout would require. Traditional hospitality technology implementations require a closet on every floor to house switches, cables and other large hardware. With DZS’ FiberLAN solution, I have less equipment to hide, which means we were able to put a linen or supply closet on every floor which reduces service response times to our guests.

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.
