  • Cost-effective


PacketLight’s transponders and muxponders performs GCM-AES-256 encryption on Layer-1 without any degradation to the full bandwidth of GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE, and 1G/2G/4G/8G/16G/32G Fibre Channel services. The encryption solution is NIST FIPS 140-2 and Common Criteria EAL2 certified, and compliant with Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Top Secret Suite B 2015 requirements for GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE.

The devices offer a high level of client interface flexibility, configuration and control.

Low Latency

The DWDM transponder solution delivers end-to-end transparency of data and clock, with sub-microsecond (less than 12usec for 10GbE) latency, suitable for synchronous backup and trading applications for distances of up to 140 km over dark fiber. Featuring extremely low latency transparent solution which is mandatory for most applications.


PacketLight optical transport solution is designed to provide reliable high capacity networks for the financial sector, that cannot afford any network downtime. The units are designed with power and fan redundancies and the systems are designed to support different levels of protection.


WDM technology supports multiservices such as GbE, 10GbE, 40GbE, and 100GbE, and 4G/8G/10G/16G/32G Fibre Channel, enabling scalability of up to 96 channels.

PacketLight’s CWDM and DWDM products connect into both ends of existing dark fiber infrastructure providing a much easier and low cost path to high capacity connectivity, while maintaining control over the fiber optic network in terms of the number, type and capacity of services they would like the single fiber to carry.

PacketLight solutions integrate optical amplifiers, mux/demux, DCMs and optical switch in a low power consumption 1U, to deliver full DWDM/OTN connectivity for long haul networks. In addition, they use high-performance FEC (forward error correction) to meet the challenges of high link attenuation and OSNR, with minimal intermediate sites.

This enables a high level of integration which is cost-effective, easy to install, saves fiber patches, and takes up minimal rack space. PacketLight’s devices form a multi-chassis which can expand at any time to add more capacity, without link downtime.


The products are designed in a cost-effective 1U. They are easy to install, enable fast network deployment, take up minimal rack space and have low power consumption, all significantly reducing OPEX and CAPEX, making for a compelling ROI.
