Passive Optical LANS

A passive optical network (PON) or Passive Optical LAN (POL) is a telecommunications network that uses point-to-multipoint fiber to the end-points in which unpowered optical splitters are used to enable a single optical fiber to serve multiple end-points, eliminating the need for active electronics between the main equipment room and the work areas.

For some network applications, POL solutions can offer a cost-effective, green architecture that brings the speed of fiber to your desktop.

The webinar below provides an overview of Passive Optical LANs and was given as an FOTC webinar. The certification for this webinar has expired so viewers can no longer earn a CEC from watching it, but the information is still valuable!
