UK service provider Vtesse has launched Optical Secure, a new high-speed encrypted optical transmission service, across its fiber-optic network. The new service leverages the optical encryption technology ADVA Optical Networking recently announced, according to the optical transport systems vendor (see “ADVA Optical Networking offers 100G encryption for metro networks”).
The Optical Secure service can be used with multiple traffic types, including Fibre Channel, InfiniBand, and Ethernet. ADVA asserts that its optical encryption technology is the only one available that can offer this wide range of protocol support.
“The ADVA FSP 3000 with encryption technology is the foundation of our new service and is what sets this service apart from any other solution available in the U.K.,” Chris Peregrine, senior product manager at Vtesse, confirmed. “Optical Secure builds on our existing security credentials serving mission-critical government and financial services sectors, allowing us to offer wire-speed, low-latency encryption for enterprise connectivity."
Vtesse offers a range of networking products to UK-based organizations, system integrators, carriers, and cloud service providers. The service provider asserts its customer roster includes “some of the UK's most prestigious financial and government organizations.” Vtesse has been an ADVA customer for 12 years.
