PacketLight Networks certified by GSA to provide optical fiber networking Solutions

PacketLight Networks, a provider of optical fiber networking solutions, has announced their General Services Administration (GSA) certification, which allows their full suite of DWDM and optical transport networking (OTN) solutions to be sold to the United States government and agencies, the company said.

Under this certification, federal, state, and local government agencies can purchase PacketLight products through GSA Advantage!®, the government´s electronic online ordering system.

PacketLight DWDM and OTN solutions are carrier-grade quality and offer up to 200G over a single fiber for systems interconnect, metro and long haul networks. Products can be integrated seamlessly within existing infrastructure and come equipped with onboard point-to-point Layer-1 security to ensure safe transfer of all information over the fiber, such as mission critical communication and personally identifiable information (PII). Implementing security at the physical layer, as opposed to Layer-2 or Layer-3, significantly reduces latency across the network.

PacketLight Networks Ltd. offers a suite of 1U metro and long haul CWDM/DWDM and OTN solutions, as well as Layer-1 optical encryption for transport of data, storage, voice and video applications over dark fiber and WDM networks.

PacketLight provides the entire optical layer transport solution within a highly integrated compact platform, designed for maximum flexibility, easy maintenance and operation, with real pay-as-you-grow architecture, while maintaining high level of reliability and low cost.
