What is a Local Area Network?

What is a Local Area Network?

A local area network, or LAN, is a geographically limited network intended for the local transport of voice, data, and video. Often referred to as an enterprise network, a LAN is just one of many types of area networks. It can be a small in-building network designed to connect IP devices, or a large network connecting multiple sites or buildings in a medical or university campus.

The LAN is made up of three primary applications: outside plant or campus network, in-building, and the horizontal. These areas contain both active (electronics) and passive (cabling) components that enable the transfer of data to all devices connected to the network. Understanding your network needs is critical to providing a network that will support your needs today and allow your network to grow into the future

Your local area network (LAN) is the heart of your organization – connecting all the IP devices and providing the bandwidth and reliability needed to run your business. Whether you are connecting devices to the network through wired or wireless connections. Creating a well-planned fiber optic backbone for your network infrastructure is what we do. We are here to ensure that you have the tools, resources, and support you need to build that is scalable, reliable, and cost-effective network that is easy to deploy.  Explore our services and complete line of fiber optic solutions, including cables, hardware, connectivity, and accessories for campus, building, and horizontal applications.

The importance of Connectivity Infrastructure in Business

The world of commercial real estate is irrevocably changing. From offices to retail structures, the most important factors when considering commercial buildings are no longer physical attributes such as location, aesthetics, and amenities. Instead, advances in technology have emerged as key differentiators between effective and ineffective infrastructures.

While the pace of change for technology is rapid, transformation within commercial real estate is slow. Emerging technologies, such as 5G and the Internet of Things (IoT), are poised to disrupt conventional approaches to commercial infrastructure and create winners and losers. Former Class A buildings may no longer be able to...

Considerations in outside fiber-optic cable design

Considerations in outside fiber-optic cable design

The Outside Plant network is evolving due to ever increasing bandwidth demands and the push to drive fiber deeper and deeper into the network. These trends are leading to rising demand for fiber counts greater than 1000 fibers in one cable. These demands require installers and designers to leverage different cable designs to meet current network complexity.

Downtime can cause a reduced productivity and undesirable customer experience resulting in a considerable loss of revenue. It is critical to have a network that is available and minimizes downtime by installing solutions that are available, compatible and easy to deploy.

Cost Effective

Cost Effective
Network owners are challenged to do more with less. Innovative products that reduce installation time and require less training can reduce overall project cost.
