GPON technology generates enormous value to businesses without the need to change core or user devices.

What is GPON: knowledgeable

GPON is a layer 2 transport medium built with Passive Optical Network (PON) technology that provides converged video, data, wireless access and voice services at gigabit speeds over a single strand of fibre.

Benefits: Businesses deploying GPON technology are making savings on capital costs and ongoing operational costs by aggregating data, voice, security & surveillance, additionally energy costs and rack space requirements can be decreased through the adoption of GPON technology.

GPON implementation enables organisations to reduce infrastructure investment from the data centre to the end user by significantly reducing the number of cable runs. The overall result is dramatic decrease in costs and network complexity.

Typically, it has been shown that implementation of GPON technology extends by 10 years the standard network lifecycle.

A further major benefit of GPON technology is a dramatic decrease in rack and floor space and the associated operationg expenses. A typical Active Ethernet LAN serving up to 2000 users requires 90 rack units of space. Active Ethernet LAN switches require one full rack for the switches and 2 additional racks for terminating the large bundles of copper cables associated with the switches. Comparatively a GPON solution could serve 7000 users with only one equipment rack and a total of 9 rack units within the rack.

ITL Technologies has extensive knowledge and expertise around GPON and has established local partnerships with global leaders in this field. If you would like to learn more about this exciting technology and how it could benefit your business, please contact us here at ITL.

Technological advancements in the world of Fibre optics are opening up new options when an organisation is considering deployment of devices in locations where access to power is difficult.

With devices such as security cameras, Wi-Fi access points and other network access resources becoming increasingly ubiquitous, deployment of these devices can be challenging, particularly in large campus style locations, stadiums and outdoors.

Many devices have PoE capability but network design can be problematic due to issues such as distance constraints and power availability. Powering devices in these challenging locations is now simplified due to advancements with Powered Fibre technology. New fibre cable technology can deliver Power over Ethernet at distances of up to 30 times greater than CAT cable systems.

With Powered Fibre, a “rack to device” power solution is now possible.

Some benefits of Powered Fibre are as follows;

  • Allows network planning that places devices in optimal positions, not only where power supply permits
  • Multiple devices from a single power source can be powered
  • Planning is expedited as DC voltage drop issues are reduced or eliminated
  • Eliminates need for local /device specific power sources
