OAKLAND, CA — Access network vendor Zhone Technologies announced an environmentally friendly, GPON-based FiberLAN Optical LAN Solution. Optical LANs, which replace traditional Ethernet LAN infrastructure in commercial environments, help reduce operating costs and address the increased demand for triple-play services. Zhone's suite supports delivery to multilevel, multiunit commercial and industrial complexes via fiber.

“Knowing the pricing pressures that our customers face, we are pleased to introduce our FiberLAN solution as a scalable option for complex, bandwidth-hungry, media-rich applications,” says Brian Caskey, Zhone’s chief marketing officer. “Service providers needed a simpler, faster, cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative to existing copper-based Ethernet Switched LAN infrastructure, and that’s where the carrier-grade FiberLAN suite fits. By leveraging our deep industry experience and the rapid adoption of cloud-based technologies, we are able to offer a highly-competitively-priced solution that allows our customers to pass along savings directly to their customers.”

Zhone’s FiberLAN is a high-performance, high-density, GPON-based optical LAN solution that delivers high-speed data, voice and video. The fully converged solution is scalable for hotel rooms, bandwidth-demanding desktops and work stations deployed in offices, rooms, factories or other industrial harsh environments. It delivers comprehensive connectivity for any LAN requirement.

Enabling converged triple-play services over a single strand of fiber, the solution reduces the LAN infrastructure cabling and electronics to a fraction of the requirements of a traditional Ethernet LAN solution. Specific benefits of the solution include:

• Elimination of need for riser closets, dedicated cooling and cross-connects
• Reduction of overall power, cooling, installation, facilities and management costs
• Simplification of moves, adds and changes
• Minimization of troubleshooting and maintenance issues and costs

The new FiberLAN suite works with Zhone software, including the Zhone Management System and Zhone EZ Touch Provisioning System. The suite includes

• MXK 194 and MXK 198 platforms
• 26XX Series ONT desktop terminals
• Passive optical splitters.
