DWDM for Healthcare

Healthcare organizations and facilities build critical-infrastructure networks that transmit highly sensitive patient and research information. The backbone must protect the information and ensure privacy, confidentiality, and constant availability of the data.

PacketLight Government & Defense Solutions

PacketLight products enable medical organizations to build their own private fiber optic infrastructure, which answers their unique needs for secured DWDM networks and enables them to meet data connectivity and business continuity needs with carrier class, high-performance optical networks.

High Capacity

PacketLight’s WDM transponders and muxponders provide an effective solution for building high capacity optical networks, by aggregating Ethernet and Fibre Channel services into a 200G/400G high capacity DWDM uplink. This is especially important in the healthcare industry, where large amounts of data must be transferred between different sites.


PacketLight’s DWDM transponders and muxponders offer Layer-1 encryption capabilities at both service and uplink levels, with a high level of client interface flexibility.

The GCM-AES-256 encryption is performed on Layer-1 without any degradation to the full bandwidth of the Ethernet and Fibre Channel services. The encryption solution complies with NIST FIPS 140-2 standards and Commercial National Security Algorithm (CNSA) Top Secret Suite B 2015 requirements.

PacketLight’s optical transport solution provides reliable high capacity networks to the healthcare sector, where critical information must be available at all time, and downtime is not an option. The devices support different levels of protection, including full equipment protection, 1+1 facility protection using an optional integrated optical switch or OTN cross-connect. In addition, the units include power and fan redundancies, further enhancing and ensuring reliability.


PacketLight devices are scalable from single channel up to 96 channels on a single fiber link, either by adding pluggable modules, or by adding 1U chassis. These two options provide low cost expansion capabilities for current and future needs, without traffic interference, which is crucial in the healthcare industry.

Healthcare organizations can expand existing network wavelength capacity quickly and easily from 10G/100G/200G to 400G per wavelength with high spectral efficiency and minimal investment. PacketLight scalable muxponder/transponder technologies deliver a flexible mix of services such as 10/40/100/400Gb Ethernet and 8/16/32G FC for high-capacity connectivity, accelerating transmission of data and storage within a standard OTN uplink at over 20Tb capacity in a single fiber.


PacketLight’s rich feature set products are designed with performance monitoring, diagnostic tools and network management system (NMS) 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.
