PacketLight Networks Achieves Common Criteria EAL2 Certification

COMPANY NEWS: PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM and optical fibre networking solutions, announces that its 100G/200G solutions with Layer-1 encryption have been certified by the Australasian Information Security Evaluation Program. The solutions are in full compliance with the requirements of the Common Criteria EAL2 augmented with ALC_FLR.1 in the category of Network and Network-Related Devices & Systems.

This certification is adopted within Australia, Oceania, Asia and Europe and provides another validation that PacketLight’s encryption  exemplifies global best practices. The 100G/200G solutions were previously certified by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) under its Federal Information Processing Standard (FIPS) 140-2 Level 2.

The Layer-1 encryption security offered within the product line ensures it can serve governments, financial institutions, healthcare facilities, critical infrastructure, and other organizations that require secure connectivity to protect sensitive information.

“Being certified for our compliance with Common Criteria EAL2, like the FIPS certification previously awarded, reinforces the fact that our technologies deliver the highest possible levels of security for our customers,” said Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight Networks. “This empowers us to share our leading-edge optical transport and encryption solutions as the go-to equipment for government, enterprises, and DCI.”

Now’s the Time for 400G Migration

The optical fibre community is anxiously awaiting the benefits that 400G capacity per wavelength will bring to existing and future fibre optic networks.

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
