The best way to protect your data and your customers? Go private.

Private edge data centers incorporate optical encryption to secure in-flight data in the transport layer of the network as it's carried over optical waves.

To fortify their critical data paths, web-scale providers are building and interconnecting data centers with lightning speed.

Distance

Large data flows can be carried over long distances and fiber types without compromising speed and performance.

Capacity

Optics increase transport capacity, unlocking new speeds of 200G and beyond over any distance.

Security

Data is encapsulated entirely within a transparent, dedicated optical transport service without additional hardware.

Management

Wavelength Services makes it easy for enterprises to adopt carrier-grade, fiber-based bandwidth services without building and running their own data center interconnection.

Cost

Application-optimized platforms allow data centers to connect faster with simple planning, ordering and installation.

Encryption

As more sensitive information gets distributed across fiber-optic networks, the IT security approach incorporates robust in-flight encryption, in addition to server security and at-rest encryption.
