Motorola passive optical LAN installed at Stony Brook University CEWIT

APRIL 7, 2010 -- Motorola, Inc. has announced the deployment of its passive optical LAN (POL) technology at the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) at Stony Brook University in New York.

APRIL 7, 2010 -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) has announced the deployment of its passive optical LAN (POL) technology at the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT) at Stony Brook University in New York. Motorola teamed with Verizon Business and ADC to implement the all-fiber enterprise LAN infrastructure to provide what it asserts is a secure, energy-efficient, and cost-effective alternative to traditional enterprise LAN architectures.

Established in 2003, the CEWIT is a partnership between the State of New York and businesses. Its new facility, located in the Stony Brook University Research and Development Park, provides researchers with 100,000 square feet of additional lab space, allowing the CEWIT to stay on the leading edge of wireless and information technology research while expanding into new technology areas.

Verizon Business provided integration services and support surrounding the implementation while ADC provided all of the fiber-structured cabling components for the POL implementation.

Motorola’s POL line includes the Motorola AXS1800 enterprise aggregation switch, the Motorola ONT1120GE intelligent POL workgroup terminal (WGT), the WT21004 WGT with power-over-Ethernet (PoE), and the Motorola AXSvision advanced management system for the enterprise.

Motorola says its POLs work well in enterprises interested in significant capital and operational cost savings. In an application within a three-floor building with a total of 1080 end users with one voice and one Ethernet port per location and ubiquitous access to Power over Ethernet (PoE) connected wireless LAN, POLs provide a greater than 50 percent reduction in five-year total cost of ownership over traditional LAN architectures, Motorola asserts. Such savings include more than 70 percent savings in cost of service agreements and 40 percent in energy savings.

In addition, POLs simplify LAN management, allow for the optimization of IT resources, and provide IT leadership the ability to focus on strategic initiatives driving advances in wireless and information technologies, Motorola concludes.
