Upcoming APOLAN Webinar Highlights Optical LAN Contributions to Sustainability Initiatives
NEW YORK, November 18, 2022 (Newswire.com) - On Dec. 5, 2022, the Association for Passive Optical LAN (APOLAN), the non-profit organization advocating for the education and global adoption for optical LAN, will discuss how fiber-based networks advance environmental during its Optical LAN Contributions to Sustainability Initiatives Case Studies webinar.
Fiber-based enterprise LANs are more energy-efficient, use less material, and require less floor, rack and closet space than copper-based traditional LANs. This insightful webinar will focus on two case studies that demonstrate how optical LAN contributes to green, sustainability, healthy and net zero initiatives.
The first case study will examine how implementing a fiber-to-the-edge network at the Corning Optical Communications headquarters building in Charlotte, North Carolina, resulted in net embodied and operational carbon reduction compared to a traditional category cable network. The optical LAN solutions supports a variety of essential applications, including Wi-Fi 6, 4G and 5G cellular, audio visual, scheduling panels, security cameras, access control and sound masking.
The second case study will detail an embodied and operational carbon comparison of optical LAN versus a traditional active switch Ethernet LAN in a 34-story digital building with a mixture of offices, cubicles and conference rooms, supported by data, voice (IP), wireless, security, intelligent DC lighting, access control and building automation systems. The case study will also identify the positive carbon emissions effect of DC microgrid architecture compared to legacy commercial lighting solutions.
APOLAN's one-hour Optical LAN Contributions to Sustainability Initiatives Case Studies webinar on Dec. 5, 2022, at 11 a.m. EST will feature speakers Gayla Arrindell, market development director for Corning, and Jeff Van Horne, president of UberData Networks. John Hoover, marketing director for Tellabs will moderate.
