XKL Adds Alien Wave Technology to its 100G DWDM Lowest-latency Optical Networking

October 28, 2013

KIRKLAND, Wash., Oct. 28, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — XKL, LLC, a leading-edge provider of enterprise fiber optic networking systems, today announces the beta release of the DXT10-10 tunable optical networking system, the first alien-wave addition to the DarkStar DWDM Optical Networking System range.

“This is a milestone release for us, and for our customers”, states Chad Lamb, XKL’s Director of Engineering. “Tunable 10G XFP DWDM 1RU transceivers, stackable in configurations from 2 to 40 channels, are part of our forward engineering roadmap towards very high port densities. Our customers need to add new DarkStar systems to their existing optical networks as quickly and smoothly as possible. Each DXT10-10 system is easily software-tuned to any ITU grid wavelength – an important part of implementing next-generation capability into an existing network.”

The award-winning DarkStar Optical Networking System platform enables lowest latency, massive bandwidth transmission, alien wave support, and the ease and reliability required by enterprises. XKL has been a supplier of 100G DWDM systems for low latency optical networks since 2006.

With propagation delay of 8 milliseconds over 1650km of SMF28 fiber, our tests show XKL’s DarkStar systems latency is close to that of light itself. The DarkStar product line starts at 20 Gbps of bandwidth, providing easy to deploy DWDM entry platforms with immediate capacity for growth.

For IT planners in large enterprises, XKL offers an easy upgrade to 40 channels on one fiber pair, with the port densities to go with it. For data centers, XKL’s DarkStar systems provide bandwidth growth for synchronizing servers, and low-cost access to high-speed Internet and private backbones. XKL’s built-in low latency and up to 400G of bandwidth is essential for high-performance users.
