New Technology Delivers Most Secure Transport for Big Data Era

Martinsried/Munich, Germany. May 14, 2014.
ADVA Optical Networkingtoday launched its new100G Metro technologywith
built-in on-the-fly encryption. Fully integrated into theADVA FSP 3000, this
is the first solution available on the market capable of transporting
100Gbit/s data rates with integrated line-side encryption. Designed
specifically for users who need to transport enormous amounts of data in the
most secure way possible, the ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption has
already been deployed by a number of enterprises and service providers. Based
upon the 4x28G technology of the original ADVA 100G Metro, this new solution
continues to push the boundaries of 100Gbit/s connectivity services.

"The security of data has never been so important; its integrity never so
public. We're living in a new era of data awareness," said Uli Schlegel,
director, data center business development, ADVA Optical Networking. "In the
wake of Heartbleed and other data security scares, businesses are only too
aware of how vulnerable their mission-critical data is. How susceptible it is
to theft and malicious use. Data security is now of paramount importance. At
the same time, the volume of data has never been so immense. Transporting and
protecting this data requires something purpose built, something special.
That's what sets our 100G Metro with built-in encryption technology apart.
It's the only product on the market capable of securely transporting big
data."

Built upon Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a key size of 256 bits, the
ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption features a Diffie Hellmann dynamic
key exchange with over 60 exchanges per hour. It provides encryption at the
lowest network layer and is completely agnostic to protocols such as Fibre
Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet. It also supports a wide variety of data
rates from 5Gbit/s, to 10Gbit/s to 40Gbit/s and onto 100Gbit/s. To ensure
compatibility in point-to-point and multi-hop infrastructures, the ADVA 100G
Metro with built-in encryption uses optical transport network (OTN) framing.
It also adds very little latency to the transmission link - less than 150
nanoseconds - compared to our non-encrypted version. This stands in stark
contrast to higher layer encryption technologies that often add significant
overhead and multiply the latency of the data stream.

One of the most unique features of the ADVA 100G Metro with built-in
encryption is that it also encrypts the header and checksum of the signal,
not just the payload or select bytes in the header. Every bit that enters one
of our client ports is encrypted. This is one of the most important aspects
to comprehensive data security. There are no snippets or breadcrumbs that
remain unencrypted, nothing that may be intercepted. What's more, with the
ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption it is possible to separate network
and encryption management. This ensures extremely granular control as to who
has access to your business' encryption management. This is vital for any
organizations that are leasing encrypted services and don't want their
service provider to be privy to their encrypted data.

"The introduction of our 100G Metro proved to be a defining moment in the big
data era. One that introduced 100Gbit/s data transport to a whole new
market," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. "Cost,
space and power consumption have long been defining factors for data center
connectivity. Now a fourth one has joined the list of top criteria -
security. Businesses need to know that their data is intact and safe. They
need to know their data can withstand any attempts at network intrusion, any
attempts to be stolen. That's what our 100G Metro with built-in encryption
does. It provides businesses with the most robust security possible; it
provides them with a genuine peace of mind. With this technology they can
focus purely on their core business objectives and not the security of their
data."
