  • Dual AC/DC pluggable Power Supply and pluggable FAN Unit


The PL-1000TE-Crypto is a multi-rate, multi-service Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing transponder (DWDM) supporting innovative cryptographic capability for 40GE, 10GbE, GbE data and 4/8/10/16G FC storage services. With this capability, the PL-1000TE-Crypto provides added security benefit to any DWDM link by encrypting the data passing between the sites.

On the data plane PL-1000TE cryptography performs layer-1 AES-256 Encryption to full bandwidth passing services. The encryption provides end-to-end transparency of data and clock with a low latency of less than 12usec for 10GbE.

PacketLight’s comprehensive encryption solution ensures three major concerns of optical link security:

  • Confidentiality - preventing disclosure of information to unauthorized parties
  • Data integrity - ensuring that the message has not been altered
  • Authentication - validating that both parties involved are indeed who they claim to be

On the management plane the PL-1000TE-Crypto supports the secured management protocols HTTPS, SSH, SNMPv3 and RADIUS, roll based user password and firewall. The PL-1000TE-Crypto also detects degradation in the fiber link performance for automatic detection of tapping attempt.

The PL-1000TE-Crypto is suited for the following applications:

  • Transporting 8G/10G clients over long distance optical network
  • Edge CPE device for end to end managed services over carrier OTN backbone Robust Packet optical network infrastructure
  • ROADM based applications as Multirate OTN transponder
  • Building effcient CWDM/DWDM solutions for Enterprises
  • Reducing the cost of backbone solution by reducing the number of required regenerators
