Howard Community College Chooses Motorola IP Network Solution

  • Motorola Mobility
HORSHAM, PA – Howard Community College of Columbia, Maryland has deployed passive optical LAN (POL) solution from Motorola to provide all-fiber IP network connectivity in the college’s newly constructed health sciences building. The solution, which will serve more than 1,500 Ethernet ports, was designed and deployed by Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC), one of the leading IT infrastructure solution providers and integrators.

“As we plan for aggressive growth over the next decade, we need technology that will easily scale to accommodate future expansion, while also saving the college time and money today. For us, that solution is Motorola’s POL,” said Tom Glaser, vice president of information technology at Howard Community College. “We were impressed by the solution’s significant cost savings and operational benefits, as well as the hassle-free maintenance. We expect Motorola’s POL to keep Howard Community College on the cutting edge for years to come as our students continue to require better and more widespread network access.”

Motorola’s POL solution is a highly reliable and economically disruptive enterprise LAN solution that offers converged voice, data and video at gigabit speeds to any Ethernet endpoint such as end-user devices, wireless access points and wireless controllers, application servers and printers. Motorola’s POL is based on proven GPON technology that delivers significant cost savings, with up to a 55 percent reduction in capital and up to a 75 percent reduction in overall operational costs, for combined Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) savings of up to 65 percent over traditional LAN architectures. The POL solution is ideal for educational institutions, new buildings or buildings undergoing major renovations, and provides organizations with the ability to rapidly address evolving technology requirements while dramatically simplifying the LAN and greatly reducing total life cycle costs.
