XKL’s Optical Technology – Pizza Boxes – As Easy as Managing a Cisco Switch
If you can run a Cisco Switch then XKL’s fully integrated DWDM optical networking gear is the right device to light your fiber.
XKL, founded by Len Bosack who also founded Cisco Systems, has been engineering and developing high-end, low cost, efficient DWDM optical transport systems for many years. It focuses on serving new Service Providers and Enterprise businesses that want to enter the market of owning their own network, without incurring exorbitant costs.
Today, XKL empowers non-traditional carriers to be their own network managers. Its DarkStar ® suite of products offers a compact, power-efficient, cost-effective, full-integrated ‘Pizza’ box that runs on Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP) for easy deployment, monitoring and high reliability.
Bosack’s latest technology is the third generation of XKL’s product line. And as he believes, the third time is the charm! Companies that have already been using XKL’s devices have been re-ordering – and repeat business is the best recommendation any gear could want.
XKL is currently testing, researching, and trialing a number of new technologies in order to help realize the future goal of delivering 1 terabit. With 100G barely just starting to make waves in the market, the key – according to Bosack – is creating an incredibly dense piece of equipment that uses lasers that run in higher specter efficiency. In my world, I can’t wrap my head around the physics of it all, however, when one touts that his solutions has been in continuous operation – even while software upgrades are being implemented – then he knows his stuff. Considering Cisco’s behemoth growth since the mid-80’s when Bosack co-founded the company, XKL’s a rather young entity in a burgeoning market for sure.
