PL-1000TE-Crypto – Layer 1 DWDM Encryption

Up to 80Gb Layer-1 encryption for optical Networks

The PL-1000TE-Crypto is a multi-rate, multi-service high density wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) transponder, supporting innovative cryptographic capability for GbE/10/40Gb Ethernet data, and 4/8/10/16G FC storage services. The PL-1000TE-Crypto provides added security benefit to any DWDM link by encrypting the data transmitting between the sites.

The comprehensive encryption solution assures three major concerns in optical link security:

  • Confidentiality – preventing disclosure of information to unauthorized parties
  • Data integrity – ensuring that the message has not been altered
  • Authentication – validating that both parties involved are who they claim to be

Flexible Design

On the data level, the PL-1000TE-Crypto performs Layer-1 GCM-AES-256 encryption on the full bandwidth. The encryption provides end-to-end transparency of data and clock, with a low latency of less than 12usec for 10GbE.

Powerful Feature Set

On the management level, the PL-1000TE Crypto supports the secured management protocols HTTPS, SSH, SNMPv3 and RADIUS, based on user password and firewall. The PL-1000TE Crypto also detects degradation in the fibre link performance for automatically detecting possible tapping attempts.
