Passive optical LAN

Increasing the use of renewable resource materials while decreasing reliance on petroleum-based materials in new construction is a major concern of today’s architects. Strategies for improving energy efficiency, reducing CO2 emissions, improving indoor environmental quality and protecting the natural resources of the world have become so important in construction that there are internationally recognized certification organizations dealing with these subjects.

To address these concerns, architects are constantly looking for opportunities to reduce electrical and fuel consumption, increase air quality, and use more eco-friendly materials in building construction.

The low-voltage communication and control system that includes Local Area Networks (LAN) supporting voice, data, and video delivery is one of the places where architects and design engineers can realize substantial improvements in energy conservation.
