Aurora Public Library selects Tellabs Optical LAN solution

Aurora Public Library has selected Tellabs Optical LAN solution for its 92,000 square-foot main facility in Aurora, Ill.

Scheduled to open in May 2015, Richard and Gina Santori Library will leverage Tellabs’ fiber-optic technology to meet its bandwidth needs.

Tellabs, a provider of passive optical networking solutions, said Santori Library will deploy Tellabs 1134 Optical Line Terminal (OLT) and the Tellabs 140 Optical Network Terminals (ONTs) with Power over Ethernet (PoE) and virtual LAN (VLAN) aware gigabit network.

Optical LAN will eliminate the need for some legacy access switches in the communications closet. The Optical LAN infrastructure will also be critical in enabling the Santori Library to achieve its sustainability goals, including the Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design (LEED) certification.

Tellabs’ Optical LAN will deliver gigabit speeds to support the library’s voice, data, video and wireless services from a single, converged fiber-based network. Tellabs’ Optical LAN could enable the Santori Library to serve additional libraries within an 18-mile radius.
