Earlier this year, I published a blog showcasing the installation of Tellabs Optical LAN in VT Group's state-of-the-art global headquarters in Chantilly, Virginia. I explained how Optical LAN would provide VT Group with increased security for their important digital assets, as well as how OLAN saved VT Group thousands of dollars compared to a traditional copper-based LAN by converging their networks into a single fiber-based infrastructure. Without a doubt, VT Group's Chantilly headquarters is a great demonstration of the benefits of Passive Optical LAN supporting the hustle and bustle of a contemporary enterprise.
It's equally certain that one of the highlights of the HTNG Insight Summit, to be held just up the road in Washington, DC on September 26 and 27, will be a tour of the VT Group global headquarters. Attendees will see first-hand not just the revolutionary smart building, but also a great example of how Optical LAN works in a modern business environment. This great video from VT Group is just a sample of what the tour will be like - you can see just how advanced this digital building is.
