How a Luxury Condo Can Support IoT with Fiber Speeds

In the Internet of Things and connected-everything era, condo complexes are under pressure to deliver high-speed connections and enough bandwidth to support their residents’ connectivity needs. Without it, they can easily lose their competitive advantage. Park Place, a luxury high-rise in Atlanta, knew that to attract new tenants and retain existing owners, they had to improve their connectivity infrastructure.

The condominium complex decided to rebuild its technology backbone and deployed a fiber-based technology, called Optical LAN, from Tellabs. This has proven to be the ideal solution because it:

  • Enabled incredibly fast Internet, which is burstable up to 1Gbps
  • Delivered bandwidth that residents require for their current devices and voice, data and video applications, and future services like VoIP, integrated music systems or exterior surveillance
  • Saves money from the moment its installed and significantly lowers the total cost of ownership over a 10-year period

While most complexes like Park Place today deploy popular copper-based networks, going against mainstream has paid off tremendously for both the condo and its residents.
