Cisco Layer 1 Encryption


Data security is a set of technologies used to safeguard private data sent across both public and private networks. The intelligent use of data protection technologies becomes increasingly necessary for organizations of all sizes. A layer 1 network encryption scheme enables network operators to transport data securely at full throughput, low latency and lowest cost.

In this demo video we showcase the Cisco Layer 1 Encryption solution via the Cisco 10Gbps Optical Encryption Line Card which is a protocol (and vendor) agnostic wire speed encryption (WSE) appliance that provides data confidentiality and data integrity over a fiber-optic communication channel. It can be used in the Cisco ONS 15454 and NCS 2000 platforms as well as with 3rd party DWDM systems. The WSE is also FIPS and Common Criteria certified.
