PacketLight Networks has added Layer 1 optical encryption capabilities to its PL-2000AD Optical Transport Network (OTN) platform in order to protect data in transit at the physical layer.
The PL-2000AD is a fully integrated, compact 1U multiprotocol, multi-rate platform that now equips enterprises and carriers with extended point-to-point Layer-1 encryption capabilities across their metro and long-haul routes.
As data demand ramps ever higher, researchers are looking to innovative amplifier designs to help transport a broader light spectrum through optical fibres, finds Andy Extance
Duncan Ellis shares his views about the increased focus on automation from network operators, and how the physical layer has so far stubbornly resisted the move
Switching off copper networks where fibre has been deployed is the end game, so why are so few operators doing it, wonders Pauline Rigby
With demand for fibre to the premises increasing, Keely Portway looks at the role training plays in ensuring installation skills remain available to meet this growing demand
