BetterFlexibility and Economics with Tellabs Optical LAN Multimode Fiber Option

Tellabs, Inc

The new Tellabs? FlexSym? Singlemode to Multimode Splittersenable cost-effective re-use of existing multimode fiber cabling for PassiveOptical LANs inside buildings and across a campus.

DALLAS, Sept. 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) –Tellabs, the leading provider of Passive Optical LAN (POL) solutions, isintroducing new Tellabs FlexSym singlemode fiber to multimode fiber 2×8 and2x32 splitters. The Tellabs FlexSym splitters open-up existing multimode (MM)fiber deployments to the benefits of Tellabs Optical LAN (OLAN), saving thetime and expense of replacing existing multimode fiber with singlemode (SM) fiber.

Both the Tellabs?FlexSym? SM-MM 2×8 Splitter and Tellabs?FlexSym? SM-MM 2×32 Splitter are built using technology from CAILabs, who areexperts in the physics of photon transmission. This, combined with Tellabs’ POLleadership position and early pioneering of POL industry advancements led tothe development of this innovative product line bringing increased efficiencyto POL deployments in existing buildings and across a campus.

The Tellabs FlexSym Singlemode to MultimodeSplitter solution offers greater flexibility for Optical LAN design and bettereconomics for OLAN upgrades.

  • Enables Passive Optical LAN over existing multimode fiber
  • Supports OM1, OM2, OM3 and OM4 fiber cable types
  • Optional support for Type-B dual PON protection for optimal network resiliency
  • Use cases where multimode fiber cabling exists inside buildings in risers, horizontal and access drop portions of the enterprise LAN

?We have both commercial and federalgovernment customers that can now move forward with Passive Optical LANretrofits because this singlemode to multimode splitter allows them to leverageexisting multimode fiber cabling inside their building, which substantiallylowers the total cost of their network upgrade,” said Jim Norrod,Tellabs President and CEO. ?The net result is they cost-effectively update theirnetwork to Tellabs OLAN, which gives them better security, has software definedLAN functions today and stands ready to support 10G speeds when and whereneeded.”

We will be showcasing the Tellabs FlexSymSinglemode to Multimode Splitter at BICSI Fall 2018 at Henry B. GonzalezConvention Center in San Antonio, Texas from September 9ththrough 13th. We invite you to visit ourexhibitor booth #300 to see our new products first-hand.
