WDM Network Solutions for Finance

VENDOR ANNOUNCEMENT by PacketLight: Financial organisations today face two crucial challenges with regards to their fibre optic network: security of the information transmitted and maintaining ultra-low latency. Some organisations buy into carrier networks and many organisations today manage their own WDM network by purchasing dark fibre and lighting it up with their own equipment.

Whichever path the network goes down, both challenges need to be answered, as they are crucial to the success of the business. PacketLight Networks solutions answer these challenges by supporting both Layer-1 encryption and ultra-low latency.

Security is not merely an important issue in the financial industry, it is essential! Enterprises must adhere to government regulations and strict international laws regarding the protection of the information transmitted. PacketLight solutions are FIPS-140-2 Level 2 certified and perform GCM-AES- 256 encryption on Layer-1 of the client signal, with full transparency and no omissions of data. This ensures the secure transfer of all information over the fibre, including mission-critical communication and personally identifiable information (PII). This means encryption on all information, with full throughput, no loss of data and ultra-low latency.

Ultra-low latency is critical to the success of businesses in capital markets and trade industries. Whether to secure a trade transaction at the right price point, or achieve a high number of transactions per hour, the finance industry relies on information being transferred quickly and efficiently. The slightest latency can mean the difference between success and failure.

Several factors can contribute to latency, and WDM network tackle them and reduce latency by up to 90%. PacketLight offers vendor-agnostic upgrades to existing networks without the need to replace equipment. The solutions seamlessly integrate with standards-based protocols and can cut up to two milliseconds off the network latency.
