Global Netwave is an industry leader of providing “true green” IT solutions. We are committed to seeking out new green IT solutions for our customers by monitoring new manufacturer technology and developments in IT. Our solutions are custom tailored to each customer’s requirements, such as size and type of company.
One of the most promising new “green” IT solutions for data networks is GPON or PON Optical LAN technology. GPON (Gigabit Passive Optical Network) or PON is an optical technology based on the industry standard ITU-TG.984x which was ratified in 2003. This technology was originally developed to provide high speed Ethernet services for residential and small business customers. In recent years, significant developments have occurred in GPON or PON technology, allowing large business or government agencies to deploy this high bandwidth, power-saving, green technology in their data networks.
GPON’s passive optical network architecture allows for a very efficient, distributed deployment of gigabit Ethernet service to the end-user. For most customers, this translates into a high bandwidth desktop availability allowing researchers, scientists, and businesses to quickly perform large data file transfers or run high bandwidth cloud computing data applications.
For network administrators, GPON also allows for a phased in migration approach of voice, data, and video services; including the ability to simultaneously support VoIP and POTS services over the same fiber. Powerful security measures at the physicial layer, data layer, and the end user port greatly reduce or eliminate the potential for Denial of Service (DoS), redirects, or other malicious attacks. Enterprise GPON is also a carrier class technology that provides a high level of Quality of Service (QOS) 99.999% for those customers with mission-critical requirements.
Today, Optical LAN / PON technology (GPON or BPON) has been widely deployed globally with over 3+ million users in North America and 4.6+ million users globally. This technology is quickly being adopted at the Enterprise level as a replacement for traditional telecommunications networks due to its highly flexible, secure, high bandwidth design, while at the same time providing a way for organizations to reduce their power consumption and network operating costs.
Global Netwave has partnered with Tellabs, one of the premire Optical LAN (PON) industry leaders, to deliver a “green” IT solution to our customers. This technology can be deployed in a phased approach as budget permits allowing customers to meet government energy reduction mandates, while also seeing a reduction of operating costs. Let us show you how your organization or agency can benefit from this technology. Give us a call today or email us and let us help make your network “green.”
