MUNICH -- ADVA Optical Networking today launched its Big Data Transport (BDT) solution. Designed specifically to transport enormous amounts of data in the most efficient, scalable and secure way possible, BDT will help to define a new era of data center connectivity. Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, BDT has been jointly developed with the world's leading data center and storage area networking enterprises. It's these enterprises that have requested a single product that can channel increasingly enormous amounts of data between an ever growing number of geographically dispersed data centers. BDT is the most scalable solution on the market capable of doing this in the most secure way possible.

“Data centers are entering a new era of rapid growth, a new era of extreme data demands,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “But to connect these data centers and transport the ever growing data volumes in the fastest and securest manner is no small task. This is especially true when we look at the emergence of the mega data centers. That's why we've developed our BDT solution. It's a direct response to customers who need the ultimate in efficiency, the ultimate in scale, the ultimate in security. There can be no question that 2014 will prove to be a pivotal year for enterprises seeking to evolve their data center strategies and intertwine these with their long-term business goals.”

ADVA Optical Networking's BDT solution has been heavily optimized to deliver several key efficiencies - space, power and cost. Each of these efficiencies is designed to drive down operating expenditures and reduce IT budgets. BDT is also inherently scalable. From 10Gbit/s, to 40Gbit/s, to 100Gbit/s and beyond, BDT can scale to specific networking demands. This scalability is critical when we consider the continued growth in data, something that is not forecast to slow anytime soon. Scale is about more than speeds though and BDT has been developed to ensure fiber efficiency. Its single fiber working (SFW) technology provides 192 bidirectional wavelengths on one point-to-point fiber - a vital asset in an age of fiber scarcity and resource optimization.

One of the most critical aspects of BDT is its innate security. It's been engineered to provide the most robust encryption technology possible. It's currently the only solution in the industry to offer 100Gbit/s with AES 256 in-flight encryption. It also encrypts the header and checksum of the signal, not just the payload or select bytes in the header. Every bit that enters one of our client ports is encrypted. What’s more, it provides encryption at the lowest network layer and is completely agnostic to protocols such as Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet. In the wake of recent security scares and possible fiber tapping, this level of data protection is vital for enterprises that need maximum security.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
