MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany -- ADVA Optical Networking today launched its new 100G Metro technology with built-in on-the-fly encryption. Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, this is the first solution available on the market capable of transporting 100Gbit/s data rates with integrated line-side encryption. Designed specifically for users who need to transport enormous amounts of data in the most secure way possible, the ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption has already been deployed by a number of enterprises and service providers. Based upon the 4x28G technology of the original ADVA 100G Metro, this new solution continues to push the boundaries of 100Gbit/s connectivity services.

"The security of data has never been so important; its integrity never so public. We're living in a new era of data awareness," said Uli Schlegel, director, data center business development, ADVA Optical Networking. "In the wake of Heartbleed and other data security scares, businesses are only too aware of how vulnerable their mission-critical data is. How susceptible it is to theft and malicious use. Data security is now of paramount importance. At the same time, the volume of data has never been so immense. Transporting and protecting this data requires something purpose built, something special. That's what sets our 100G Metro with built-in encryption technology apart. It's the only product on the market capable of securely transporting big data."

Built upon Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) with a key size of 256 bits, the ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption features a Diffie Hellmann dynamic key exchange with over 60 exchanges per hour. It provides encryption at the lowest network layer and is completely agnostic to protocols such as Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet. It also supports a wide variety of data rates from 5Gbit/s, to 10Gbit/s to 40Gbit/s and onto 100Gbit/s. To ensure compatibility in point-to-point and multi-hop infrastructures, the ADVA 100G Metro with built-in encryption uses optical transport network (OTN) framing. It also adds very little latency to the transmission link - less than 150 nanoseconds - compared to our non-encrypted version. This stands in stark contrast to higher layer encryption technologies that often add significant overhead and multiply the latency of the data stream.

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.
