Equipment manufacturer touts Elauwit's deployment of next generation LAN technology
It's true. We did chose Optical LAN from Tellabs and Core Telecom for our more recent student housing networks. Our CTO, Taylor Jones, said it best in the press release. "Tellabs’ Optical LAN enables us to deliver the bandwidth students need today and tomorrow, simplify our LAN deployments and lower overall LAN costs,” he said.
We deployed this new technology at each of our new cottege developements including Retreat at Oxford in Oxford, MS, Retreat at State College in State College, PA and each of the six new Aspen Heights properties in Clemson, SC, Columbia, MO, Murfreesboro, TN, Harrisonburg, VA, Statesboro, GA, Stillwater, OK. This left more than 6,100 residents using the new technology this year.
And, while the average Elauwit resident brings more than five devices with them to college, meeting that extreme demand is our first priority. Thus, we are always looking at new technology to support those needs.
“To help college students succeed, ultra-high-speed data services are key,” said Tom Ruvarac, Tellabs director-product management, said in the press release. “That’s why Tellabs provides a future-proof Optical LAN solution that can easily scale up to handle traffic needs for decades to come.”
Tellabs was so thrilled with our investment in their technology that they ran an ad in Student Housing Business' newsletter and released a full presser about our partnership. We are thrilled to be able to work with such innovators in the market who truly make our jobs easier.
At the end of the day, all we are really concerned with is providing the best services to our residents -- college students or otherwise. Tellabs and CORE Telecom both helped us do that with their Optical LAN.
