Digitization in Education

A reliable and broadband network infrastructure - the basis for digitization in Education

Today’s students live in a connected world: digital learning technologies, entertainment via high-speed internet, smart phones and wireless TV are just a sample of the technologies that students consider essential. FiberLAN™ delivers secure, high-speed internet access to educational institutions in support of a variety of services including: WiFi access in rooms and common areas, remote learning capabilities, smart boards, interactive projectors, workstations and more.

The optical fibre solution for LAN environments

The demands on an efficient IT infrastructure at schools and universities are high. It must provide high bandwidths to offer a variety of services. The LAN solution FiberLAN from DZS offers high bandwidths, as well as reliability, flexibility, security and simple operation. In addition, FiberLAN can be used to set up multiple virtual networks with maximum security.

FiberLAN users profit from

+ lower TCO (Total Cost of Ownership)

+ higher availability and security

+ future proof infrastructure

+ more bandwidth

+ eco-friendly

Fiber-based LAN networks for a secure network infrastructure in Education

A FiberLAN network is a proven GPON architecture that shares a single mode fiber to offer point-to-multipoint network connectivity to subscribers using passive optical components. For application that require P2P connectivity, FiberLAN™ is capable of Active Ethernet, too.

FiberLAN is a high performance solution built entirely on industry leading standards for schools and universities. This fully converged solution is scalable for a single or multilevel building. It is also very well suited for changes in LAN infrastructure for large campus environments where new facilities are being installed or upgraded.

DZS’ layer 2 transport infrastructure, FiberLAN, delivers converged services over a single strand of fiber. FiberLAN™ reduces the costs of your LAN infrastructure cabling and electronics to a fraction of what is required to a traditional copper infrastructure. Operationally, FiberLAN™ greatly reduces the complexity of provisioning and managing a LAN network by acting as a one large virtual switch instead of multiple individual network elements. This virtual switch can be easily managed by either a graphical user interface (GUI) and/or a command line interface (CLI).

As technology advances, so do the ways to conserve energy and reduce operating costs. FiberLAN replaces conventional copper and multimode fiber used with traditional network infrastructures to a single mode fiber optic cable allowing for the elimination of the traditional workgroup switch, patch panels, and racks in riser closets.
