Motorola’s Passive Optical LAN Solution Achieves Department of Defense JITC Certification

Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) approval lays groundwork for U.S. Department of Defense to immediately begin deployments of Motorola’s proven all optical LAN solution.

Motorola Mobility announced today their Passive Optical LAN (POL) solution has received a Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC) certification from the U.S. Department of Defense. JITC certification allows for Motorola’s POL to be deployed as a fixed element in Department of Defense’s Information Systems Networks, ultimately helping reduce the agency’s network complexity, improve security, and reduce total network life cycle costs.

The JITC certified POL solution is an economically disruptive LAN solution that greatly simplifies complex multi-tiered data networks by eliminating the local distribution switches and associated power, cooling and battery backup and dedicated telco closet space needed to support a traditional data network. POL provides direct fiber access to any stationary Ethernet end point and provides Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) to support devices such as IP phones, wireless access points, application servers and printers – up to 20km from the datacenter. Motorola’s POL solution offers and optional GUI based network management application called AXSvision that allows for rapid provisioning, multi-tiered user access and direct end point fault isolation – directly from the datacenter.

“Motorola is very pleased to have achieved this important milestone, said Joe Cozzolino, Sr. VP and GM for Network Infrastructure Solutions. Motorola has a proven history of empowering U.S. government agencies with the latest communication and technology innovations. The innovation behind POL leads to a simplified network that is highly secure, and dramatically reduces the TCO compared to traditional LAN architectures.”

Motorola’s POL solution is currently deployed in government agency, financial and education environments. Motorola’s POL solution is comprised of a centralized Enterprise Aggregation Switch, optical Work Group Terminals with and without PoE and ASXvision and Motorola’s GUI based fault, configuration, inventory, performance and security application.
