5G-READY BASE BUILDING NETWORK SOLUTIONS
Managed PON for optimized building operation and maintenance
Passive Optical Network (PON) is a fibre-optic based infrastructure platform that connects all building systems in a scaleable, secure and cost-effective manner. Andorix designs, deploys and provides ongoing management services for Operational Technology (OT) PON in-building network systems across our customers’ real-estate assets. Within a typical OT environment, all of the major building systems (e.g. Building Automation, Lighting Control, Access Control, and Video Surveillance) will utilize the PON building network to communicate with the endpoint devices.
The Andorix next-gen PON platform has a significantly longer depreciation life cycle than traditional PON. This new service will deliver up to 10 gigabit connectivity to end customers as well as amplify the backbone performance of Building System Networks tenfold.
PONs offer the same functionality as traditional Active Networks but use light rather than electrical signals. By utilizing light splitters instead of active switches, PONs are not only more cost-effective but also do not require any power to operate. The Optic Network Terminal (ONT) at the network’s edge converts electrical transmissions to light signals and vice versa, ensuring seamless compatibility with existing building systems that rely on traditional networks. Building owners can have peace of mind knowing that there is no need to replace or modify their current building systems to accommodate PON technology.
