German data center builder and operator Datacenter One will use the ADVA (FSE: ADV) FSP 3000 with ConnectGuard encryption capabilities in a secure data center interconnect application for one of its major financial clients, according to the systems house. The packet-optical transport platform will provide secure 100-Gbps Carrier Ethernet and Fibre Channel transmission between the fianancial company’s main data centers leveraging Layer 1 encryption.
Stuttgart-based Datacenter One specializes in custom data center construction and service provision, promising to deliver turn-key data centers within six to nine months at the client's preferred location. "At Datacenter One, we always aim at a solution that perfectly fits our client's needs. By leveraging ADVA's technology, we've been able to engineer such a solution. With its flexible modular architecture, it's also hugely scalable, helping us ensure that the client's new network is primed for future expansion," said Markus Binder, founder and managing director, Datacenter One.
"ADVA's in-flight data security solution is fully integrated into the transport gear so no extra equipment is required,” Binder continued. “This type of physical layer encryption is the toughest possible defense against ever-more sophisticated fiber-tapping and intrusion techniques. It keeps latency at its lowest possible levels while protecting every network layer, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. This means our client can enjoy peace of mind as well as the freedom to concentrate on its core business."
ADVA established the ConnectGuard brand in 2015 (see “ADVA Optical Networking ConnectGuard tackles optical, Ethernet security”), after launching 100-Gbps Layer 1 encryption capabilities the previous year (see “ADVA Optical Networking offers 100G encryption for metro networks”). The company recently unveiled a virtualized version of the technology for cloud and hybrid networks (see “ADVA launches ConnectGuard Cloud for virtualized encryption in hybrid and multi-cloud environments”).
