LANactive FTTO

Fibre To The Office

Fibre To The Office

Simplify your network

Nexans LANactive is an alternative LAN technology for use in office environments. Passive fibre cabling and active switches are combined to provide Gigabit Ethernet services from the central core switch to an FTTO switch and from there to end user devices.

Although the entire network operates at 1 Gbps, throughput is as good as - or better than - that of a traditional network setup featuring floor distributors and an aggregated high-speed backbone. Performance is further supported by non-blocking switching and switches with 20 Gbps backplane.

LANactive switches ensure intelligent conversion from fibre to copper and vice versa. Each switch, installed at the workplace in cable ducts or floor boxes, is equipped with four copper RJ45 user ports to feed end user devices with data and power. Fibre speed, reliability and long distance coverage are coupled with the Ethernet benefits of copper. This solution meets current and foreseeable network requirements in terms of flexibility, cost efficiency and network interoperability.

Regardless of their size and complexity, networks can be easily and cost efficiently managed from a single location with the LANactive configuration and management platform from Nexans. Precise mapping of current infrastructure status makes it possible to track and repair faults or configuration errors fast, saving considerable time.
