Data Center Interconnect (DCI)

Highly available Data Center Coupling

Our highlights with the in-house developed system technology

Flexibility and scalability according to your needs

The SPEED-WDM series comprises a large number of passive CWDM and DWDM modules with a wide variety of available number of channels. Starting with small CWDM cards with 5 channels, over DWDM modules, which can be expanded from 8 to 40 channels without interruption of running services, up to large multiplexers with 40, 80 or 96 channels, everything is possible. Therefore you can start with a small and inexpensive solution that grows with your need for more transmission capacity and can be expanded easily and interruption-free. All xWDM modules are working passive (without external power supply) and support data rates from 100 Mbps up to 200 Gbps per channel and are completely protocol-transparent for your applications. The 19" sub racks are designed modular and new system cards can be added during operation (hot pluggable). When fully expanded, you can transfer up to 1,920 applications with a maximum data volume of 19.2 TB per fiber optic line between your locations.

 

Multi-protocol support

With the SPEED-OTS-5000 you can transmit all the data protocols that are required in modern data center coupling projects. Starting with Ethernet via Fibre Channel, SDH, Infiniband, OTN up to video interfaces, all common interfaces are supported:

  • 1/10/25/40/100 Gigabit Ethernet
  • 1/2/4/8/16/32 Gigabit Fibre Channel
  • STM-1/4/16/64
  • 5/10/14/25G Infiniband
  • OTU-2/3/4
  • HD-SDI, 3G-SDI, DVB-ASI

Security of your connection

Our SPEED-OTS-5000 system offers hardware-based AES 256 encryption on Layer 1 with minimal latency and full data throughput. The additional latency generated by the active encryption is only 5µs. AES-256 Galois / Counter Mode (GCM) is used as the relevant algorithm. The configuration area for encryption is completely separated from the regular configuration area of ​​the DWDM system, both physically via its own Secure Micro USB port (Security Admin access) and logically using its own access data. The key exchange is realized via the Elliptic Curve Diffie-Hellman method (ECDH). The session key is exchanged regularly, the interval can be set freely from 5 minutes up to max. 80 hours. It is a license-based encryption which also can be activated retrospectively by installing a software update without replacing the hardware. The encryption is complying to the technical requirements of the Federal Office for Information Security in Germany (BSI).

High availability and fast recovery

All active working components are hot-swappable and the active system cards are transceiver-based regarding the optical interface. For easy installation and maintenance in your data centers, the 19" sub racks are accessible from the front side and therefore the components can be inserted and changed easily. In the event of a replacement, the configuration is automatically restored for simple troubleshooting.
