Pentegra enables smart buildings with a fiberoptic based network solution acting as a superhighway for invaluable operational optimization. Our PON (Passive Optical Network) solutions open new options for building design and sustainability while creating a scalable, future-proofed network. While perfect for new construction, PON solutions easily integrate into existing structures as well without the need to replace or modify existing building systems.
Pentegra is the only certified designer and integrator of Tellabs OLAN Solutions (passive optical local area network) in the Chicagoland area, providing a comprehensive networking infrastructure that enables secure connectivity for smart buildings and campuses. Our scalable solution provides actionable information and reduces the long-term cost of ownership.
How PONs work
Traditional active networks utilize electrical signals to transmit data. PON solutions use fiberoptic cabling and light splitters that require no electrical power to operate, saving organizations money. An Optical Network Terminal (ONT) positioned at the network’s edge is capable of turning electrical signals to light signals and vice versa to ensure compatibility with existing in-building systems.
