SOLiD Exhibiting at HTNG North American Conference 2013
Debuting Next-Generation Passive Optical LAN Fiber-to-the-Room Solution for Hotels
February 11, 2013, Roseburg, OR - SOLiD, a publicly-traded global communications solutions innovator, is debuting INFINITY ACCESS™, a Passive Optical LAN (POL) Fiber to the Room (FTTR) solution which enables dedicated, symmetrical and secure high-capacity Gigabit Ethernet (1GE, 1Gbps) links to each hotel guestroom for delivery of next-generation IP-based voice, data and video services such as 4KTV. Currently under consideration for the Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG)’s Most Innovative Hospitality Technology Award, SOLiD is exhibiting at Table 24 during the 9th Annual HTNG North American Conference at the Westin Buckhead in Atlanta, February 25-28.
Based upon DWDM-PON technology (dense wavelength division multiplexing; passive optical network), INFINITY ACCESS provides each room with its own unique wavelength of carrier-grade 1Gbps upstream and downstream capacity that is completely transparent to voice, data, video services. This advanced approach eliminates the need to share bandwidth between rooms and maintains service among a sector even if one room is down for servicing. Upgrading bandwidth to 10Gbps can be managed on a room by room basis without affecting other rooms on the floor.
A single INFINITY ACCESS terminal currently serves up to 16 guestrooms on a single strand of fiber from the main switch. However, the Company expects to expand service capability to up to 32 guestrooms later this year. Additionally, INFINITY ACCESS is BYOS (Bring Your Own Switch), so hoteliers can keep existing hardware and readily upgrade Access Points or IP Phones.
INFINITY ACCESS lowers OPEX through SOLiD's patented true colorless INFINITY TUNABLE LASER™ technology. Plug-and-Play self-provisioning reduces turn-up of service to minutes, not days. And sparing costs are minimized because each transponder card uses the same colorless laser.
- Scalable to 10GE without replacing infrastructure/common equipment
- Ability to allocate bandwidth and applications per wavelength
- Extremely low latency, without jitter or packet loss
- Protocol, service and end device agnostic
