Presentation: Passive Optical LAN’s High-Density Capabilities
This presentation describes the active components of a passive optical LAN—the optical line terminal (OLT) and optical network terminals (ONTs). It focuses on how, through the OLT, a passive optical LAN can provide high-density networking capabilities serving a number of different user environments. It also describes the characteristics and capabilities of ONTs, which facilitate the connection to the user.
Presentation: The Passive Optical LAN’s Passive Connectivity
A passive optical LAN’s high-density capacity can require a high number of fiber-optic connections in the network. This presentation discusses the passive fiber-optic connectivity that can be used in a POL. From splitters to fiber enclosures and preterminated assemblies, there are a number of connectivity choices to make when deploying a POL. The presentation describes these connectivity options, their functions, and their placement within a passive optical LAN.
Presentation: Best Practices for Testing Passive Optical LAN’s Fiber Infrastructure
Optical splitters facilitate the high-density, long-distance transmission capabilities inherent in a passive optical LAN. This splitter-based architectural setup makes testing the system’s installed fiber links a different process than what’s used for a LAN with a hierarchical star architecture. This presentation provides practical hands-on information for installers, test technicians, network owners and others about how to test a passive optical LAN’s infrastructure.
