Elauwit Deploys Optical LAN To Keep Up With College Students' Bandwidth Needs

NAPERVILLE, Ill., Sept. 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Elauwit, a leading campus housing service provider, is deploying Tellabs' Optical LAN (local area network) to deliver RF video and ultra-high-speed Internet to college students in 8 student housing projects across 8 states.

"College students expect great broadband data service, particularly in student housing. Tellabs' Optical LAN enables us to deliver the bandwidth students need today and tomorrow, simplify our LAN deployments and lower overall LAN costs," said Taylor Jones, CTO at Elauwit.  "Tellabs Optical LAN, coupled with CORE Telecom's complementary solutions, provides Elauwit much better value for money, compared with conventional, copper-based LANs."

College Students Challenge Local Area Networks with Their Demands

Because college students use many different devices to stream HD video and data, their bandwidth demands pose a major challenge for LANs. A recent study by Pew Internet found that more than 9 out of 10 college students are using broadband data services. More than 8 out of 10 students rely on multiple devices, connecting via cell phones, laptops and iPods.

"To help college students succeed, ultra-high-speed data services are key. But traditional copper-based LANs can't keep up with growth in students' bandwidth demands," said Tom Ruvarac, Tellabs director-product management. "That's why Tellabs provides a future-proof Optical LAN solution that can easily scale up to handle traffic needs for decades to come."

Tellabs Optical LAN is purpose-built for high-capacity, high-performance LANs such as student housing networks. It simplifies the underlying network infrastructure and operations, getting the LAN's job done with fewer network elements by using passive optical networking technology. Tellabs Optical LAN can save up to 70% of the total cost of ownership, 80% of power requirements and 90% of space needs, compared with a copper-based LAN.
