Adva Optical Networking has announced that Telindus Telecom, the first global alternative operator in Luxembourg, has deployed Adva’s FSP 3000 with advanced encryption technology to ensure the security of its operator network and cloud services.

Telindus Telecom’s cloud infrastructure is focused on serving Luxembourg’s enterprise market – a market with some of the most rigorous security and confidentiality requirements in the world. As such, it’s imperative that it features the most robust protection possible. Adva’s encryption technology will protect data as it travels between Telindus Telecom’s data center locations and ensure continuous access to cloud-based business services.

“The security and availability of our customers’ data has always been a top priority in our solution design,” said Jacques Ruckert, director products and solutions, at Telindus. “With the rapid migration of our customers to cloud-based services, security and availability become even more critical.”

Adva’s encryption technology is engineered to suit the needs of a broad range of enterprise demands. Its protocol agnostic design enables it to transport any traffic, including Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet. The FSP 3000 system encrypts all data that passes through a client port and does so at the lowest network layer. It also adds very little latency, which cannot always be said for higher-layer encryption methods.

“Telindus is recognized as one of the top three European EuroCloud players for the quality of its services,” said Yann Evain, sales director at Adva Optical Networking. “This success is one of the key reasons that it continually needs to advance; to push the boundaries of its network and its customers’ expectations. The FSP 3000 with encryption technology not only meets its network needs today, but will also do that when Telindus begins the migration to 100Gbit/s data rates and 16Gbit/s Fibre Channel.”
