Tellabs has extended its line of passive optical LAN (POL) optical network terminals (ONTs) with a pair of additions. The Tellabs 180C ONT targets high-density applications, while the Tellabs 131W ONT meets outdoor requirements.

The indoor Tellabs ONT180C offers eight 10/100/1000 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. The plug-and-play ONT also offers eight ports of PoE, PoE+, and/or 4PPoE Power over Ethernet. It supports Dante and CobraNet digital audio systems over IP and can be mounted in furniture, on the wall, under the desk, free-standing, or with optional plenum bracket.

The outdoor Tellabs ONT131W has three 10/100/1000 RJ-45 Ethernet ports and one RJ-11 analog voice POTS port, as well as two ports for PoE and PoE+. It also offers plug-and-play capabilities for the ONT plus subtended devices. The ONT is designed to operate within industrial temperature ratings and is plenum rated for mounting in air handling spaces inside buildings. It thus can support indoor and outdoor applications.

“Whether it’s a conference room in a corporate office or the lobby of a hotel, the eight-port ONT180C delivers the additional Ethernet interfaces, with Power over Ethernet, our customers need from one ONT,” said Jim Norrod, Tellabs president and CEO. “We also have many customers that require connectivity for outdoor IP cameras, and outdoor wireless access points, across their expansive campus, and that is where our purpose-built outdoor ONT131W is most useful."
