Motorola's New Passive Optical LAN Solution
Motorola, Inc. today announced the availability of its Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution designed to revolutionize traditional LAN economics and complexity. POL is an all-fiber enterprise LAN solution connecting any stationary Ethernet-based device or system across the enterprise into the wide area network.
In addition, Motorola and Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) today announced an agreement that enables SAIC to resell Motorola's POL solutions into the global enterprise market. Motorola will showcase its POL solutions at the 2009 Interop Business and Technology Conference & Expo in Las Vegas, May 19-21, 2009 at Booth No.1643.
Addressing many of the top concerns of enterprise IT professionals, POL creates a high-performance, reliable and secure network for IP voice, data and video. Based on Motorola's proven GPON technology, Motorola POL provides significant capital and operational cost savings over traditional enterprise network solutions by reducing the need for campus distribution or costly workgroup switches in every riser closet. The elimination of the switches offers rapid cost savings in power, cooling, energy, and space costs. In addition, POL relieves the strain on IT resources by greatly simplifying the network; reducing the overall number of active components and creating an architecture that is easier to deploy, manage and maintain.
"Enterprise users require a different level of network sophistication today than they did even a few years ago," said Kevin Keefe, vice president of marketing, Access Network Solutions, Motorola Inc. "Not only do they expect secure and reliable IP voice and data, but they demand improved network economics and greatly simplified solutions. POL offers clear technology advantages of fully converged IP voice, data and video and truly disruptive capital and operational savings."
POL is uniquely positioned to enhance Motorola's Wireless Enterprise, a mobile network solution comprised of wireless LAN (WLAN), broadband and Voice Over WLAN (VoWLAN) products. By networking traffic between access points, controllers and business systems, Motorola will provide enterprises with improved mobility and throughput in addition to unmatched reliability, gap-free security and with the best ROI and lowest TCO.
