Ciena Announces WaveLogic Encryption

Ciena introduced its WaveLogic Encryption solution for delivering optical-layer encryption to match high capacity infrastructure needs – from 10G to 100G, 200G and beyond, from metro to ultra-long haul distances.

Ciena said its WaveLogic Encryption solution is FIPS-certified and meets the highest security standards recognized globally in the industry. Powered by Ciena’s WaveLogic 3 Extreme chipset, the solution provides software programmable modulation to enable both 100G encryption with QPSK modulation and 200G encryption with 16QAM modulation. WaveLogic Encryption is protocol agnostic, meaning it simultaneously encrypts any traffic type coming into the network, including Ethernet, Fibre Channel, OTN, IP, SONET, and SDH. It encrypts the entire wavelength before the data leaves the building or data center, and transports it transparently with virtually no added latency, making efficient use of network resources and maintaining quality of end-customer experience.

Additionally, Ciena’s software-based MyCryptoTool features a dedicated management user portal that provides full control to the end enterprise user or security officer to manage all security parameters.

“Safeguarding critical data has become a major priority in today’s web-scale world. Previous infrastructure solutions have been cumbersome to manage and burdened by separate boxes, impacting throughput and latency. Our new WaveLogic Encryption solution is simple to deploy and provides a strong and effective defense with an additional level of protection to enable end-to-end security,” stated Francois Locoh-Donou, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer, Ciena.

The solution will be generally available in the first calendar quarter of 2016.
