Redmond WA – October 19th, 2016
Bandwidth use is often unpredictable and as data demands increase at exponential rates, businesses must strive to keep up. Len Bosack, Founder and CEO of XKL, discovered an opportunity to solve that problem through the intelligent and swift prioritization of bandwidth. Today, Mr. Bosack and his team of expert engineers announced the launch of eVolocity, XKL’s new 100GE coherent solution; the first of its kind to use statistical multiplexing to flexibly allocate bandwidth capacity on an as-needed basis.
Spearheaded by Mr. Bosack, eVolocity is ideal for data center interconnect and metro and long haul transport. It uses an OSI Layer 1 statistical multiplexing algorithm that allows for the dynamic allocation of bandwidth and enables seamless capacity growth as customer demands increase. Plus, by maximizing line utilization, eVolocity customers are able to run at full line rates and take advantage of maintaining a flexible network architecture, with physical ports soft-assigned priorities, providing QoS controls.
eVolocity’s key features include:
- 100GE coherent line-side optics with 240Gb of client-side connectivity in a compact 1 RU form factor
- Bandwidth-on-demand with packet shaping using statistical multiplexing
- Digital ROADM and FlexArc technology that provides add/drop functionality in addition to point-to-point, ring and mesh topologies
- Low power consumption and smaller footprint, reducing recurring costs
- Bandwidth management at Layer 1, providing QoS for data demanding applications
- Interoperable with lit service or dark fiber
“Spectral efficiency is essential for optical networking solutions,” says Bosack. “In addition to this, eVolocity is engineered to prioritize and allocate customer data intelligently, thus minimizing idle capacity. This dynamic bandwidth allocation is unique for Layer 1 and provides another means for customers to handle the explosion in bandwidth growth. Customers are looking for additional methods to get more data through the fiber. Spectral efficiency improvements via more complex modulation formats alone will not get the job done.”
