The World's Largest Passive Optical LAN Saves Energy And Money For Sandia National Laboratories

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M., Feb. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- At Sandia National Laboratories, the world's largest passive Optical LAN now connects about 13,000 workstations in 265 buildings. Sandia National Laboratories started deploying Tellabs Optical LAN Solution in 2009 to replace an existing copper-based LAN. 

With Tellabs Optical LAN Solution, Sandia expects to save about $20 million in costs over 5 years, once the system is fully deployed.

A video on the Sandia National Laboratories Optical LAN is scheduled on The Green Room on Fox Business News Network Saturday, March 2, at 11 a.m. (EST), 10 a.m. (CST), 9 a.m. (MST), and 8 a.m. (PST).

Tellabs Optical LAN Solution provides enterprises with high bandwidth, high security, lower energy usage and lower cost. Tellabs Optical LAN replaces conventional, copper-based LANs in buildings and on campuses with 500 or more workstations. With Tellabs Optical LAN, enterprises can save up to:
  • 70% of total cost of ownership
  • 80% of energy consumption
  • 90% of space requirements.

To extend its Optical LAN solution, Tellabs will ship the new Tellabs 120 mini-ONT, the world's smallest enterprise ONT, in the second quarter. The company is also investing in the sales channel to extend its distribution into enterprises.
