The Successor to Ethernet

Webinar Invite sofsol.png
Soft Solutions is in the process of signing up to represent a new breed of network infrastructure technology that will revolutionise how data is carried around a building or a campus. It’s called Passive Optical LAN (POL) or Passive Optical Network (PON) but in layman’s terms, it’s using fibre instead of Cat 6 Ethernet and the benefit is faster speeds, a huge power saving, and a lot fewer cabling panels and the like dotted around a building.

The traditional contact point into your organisation for Soft Solutions has been in the licensing and procurement teams but with this new technology, we would like to also be introducing it to the network architects and structured cabling people in your organisation, or the outside contractors you use for structured cabling, so we would appreciate if you could pass this on please.

As a starting point to introduce this technology we would like to invite you to attend a webinar on 8th December where you will get an expert introduction to the business case for passive optical LAN from the vendor, Alcatel-Lucent. Yes, Alcatel-Lucent is not only about expensive equipment for Telco’s – they also have this incredible network technology and have brought Soft Solutions on board to introduce it to a wider audience.

Here’s the invite from Alcatel-Lucent, and a registration link:
