The law firm extends the benefits of the fiber-based solution to new office in Virginia.
NAPERVILLE, Ill. – September 16, 2014 – Tellabs, a leading provider of passive optical network (PON) solutions, and system integrator VT Group, today announced that law firm Miles & Stockbridge deployed Tellabs’ Optical LAN technology in its new office in Virginia, following the successful deployment of this solution in the law firm’s headquarters in Baltimore. Through the innovative technology that features the world’s smallest optical network terminal (ONT), the firm now has a more scalable, simpler network solution.
By leveraging fiber’s unlimited bandwidth, Optical LAN enables Miles & Stockbridge to easily meet its growing bandwidth needs and support future services. In the new office, Optical LAN provides gigabit speeds to support the firm’s voice-over-IP (VoIP), IPTV (Internet Protocol television), high-definition security cameras, audio-visual (A/V) technology and data services. These services are all integrated in a single converged architecture that provides centralized management and supports remote management. This makes the network simpler and delivers operational and management efficiencies that would not be possible with copper-based, active Ethernet LAN.
“From our previous deployment in Baltimore, we knew Optical LAN was superior to the traditional copper-based LAN in many ways, so selecting it for the new office was a no-brainer,” said Ken Adams, CIO of Miles & Stockbridge. “Tellabs and VT Group delivered exactly what we asked for – a high-performance, scalable infrastructure that can support our evolving bandwidth needs, while simplifying our operations and network management.”
Specifically, Miles & Stockbridge deployed the Tellabs 1134 optical line terminal (OLT); Tellabs 709 and 728 ONTs; and Tellabs 120 Mini ONTs. All were designed to fit neatly into Miles & Stockbridge’s offices, in a standard wall outlet or inside a cubicle raceway, powered over Ethernet.
“Miles & Stockbridge proves that once a company realizes the benefits of Optical LAN, they will never go back to copper,” said Mike Dagenais, president and CEO of Tellabs. “In addition, it shows our Optical LAN solution is perfect fit for a modern enterprise – it delivers the benefits of an all-fiber infrastructure from a form factor that is designed to meet the specific needs of an office space.”
Design of all services was provided by VT Group who worked with Miles & Stockbridge to ensure the firm’s desired performance needs were met. For this flawless deployment, VT Group integrated all services and technologies to achieve maximum customer satisfaction.
“With Optical LAN, our customers no longer worry they’ll need to replace their network to add more bandwidth or new services,” said John Cook, general manager for VT Group. “By integrating all services onto one network, they’re getting unmatched performance and operational efficiencies they can reap immediately.”
