CommScope's COVID-19 Customer & Partner Hub Visit
As today’s tech-savvy seniors transition to retirement living, Wi-Fi connectivity is a necessity, not a luxury. To meet its residents’ rising expectations and stay ahead of the competition, Erickson Living chose CommScope to provide state-of-the-art network connectivity to its senior residential communities.
To provide the expanded and improved connectivity their residents demanded, Erickson Living decided to install gigabit passive optical networks (GPONs) at seven of its campuses in 2015 — and CommScope’s RapidFiber™ hub and terminal optical LAN solution was selected for the new GPON fiber plants. This state-of-the-art, plug-and-play FTTX system is designed to deploy optical fiber distribution networks for a variety of architectures— and do it in less time and at less total cost. With RapidFiber, the Erickson networks could be installed without the addition of racks of equipment or the closets needed to house those racks.
After the solution deployment, Erickson Living residents now enjoy state-of-the-art Wi-Fi internet access wherever they go in the community. Connected by CommScope fiber, Erickson’s robust, expandable system is future-ready for additional services, including access control, video surveillance, building automation, resident health monitoring and much more.
