ZTE’s Light POL (passive optical LAN) system offers an alternative to traditional Ethernet switches, which have a complex multi-level convergence architecture in enterprise network construction. ZTE Light POL features a simple network architecture, highly reliable access with multiple protection modes, and continuous high-bandwidth evolution. One optical network can meet the requirements of campus and home scenarios and carry multiple services. Compared with traditional Ethernet access, the Light POL reduces equipment room space by 80%, comprehensive energy consumption by 60%, cabling costs by 70%, and comprehensive costs by 55%, according to ZTE.

Judge’s Comment: “Passive optical LAN has penetrated the large enterprise market over the past several years. Small to medium enterprises (SMEs) have been challenged to cost-justify the technology. ZTE's Light POL Solution makes POL technology more accessible to SMEs that can benefit from its long-established and time-tested technological advantages.”
