/PRNewswire/ -- As enterprises and government agencies seek innovative ways to lower IT costs,
they're choosing Optical LANs
to deliver voice, data and video to workplaces.
Now, Tellabs is introducing the world's smallest enterprise ONTs. The new Tellabs
100 Series Mini Optical Network Terminals fit anywhere – mounting in a standard wall outlet or cubicle raceway. [Editor's note: A photo of the Tellabs 100 Mini ONT is available
Out of sight
Purpose-built for enterprise networks, Tellabs new Mini ONTs:
- Reduce cabling requirements and exposure to damage or theft, with no ONTs sitting on or under desks
- Minimize the need for space in the communication closet
- Eliminate fiber jumpers and desk/wall mounts
- Require no power or battery back-up at the desktop, since they're remotely powered from the communications closet
- Lower deployment costs.
A single fiber provides voice, video and data services. The solution delivers Tellabs All-Secure PON™ for high security, with the fiber terminated in the wall outlet.
Small, but powerful
"Tellabs Optical LAN saves government and enterprise customers money, energy and space. The new Tellabs Mini ONT makes Optical LAN even better because it fits in your hand, yet offers cutting-edge enterprise ONT features," said
, acting president and CEO of Tellabs. "Our new Mini ONTs install in a wall outlet, which enterprises are used to. Still, they deliver all the cost, efficiency and security advantages of Optical LAN."
