After an exciting September 2012, filled with nominations at the World Communications Awards (WCA), TeliaSonera International Carrier kicks off the fall season with two more award nominations for a couple of categories in the 2012 Capacity Awards. The prestigious Capacity Awards place an emphasis on companies, technology partners and individuals who excel in the deployment, development and use of carrier services throughout the year. TeliaSonera International Carrier, providing exceptional network infrastructure and services, has been shortlisted in the Best Global Wholesale Carrier and the Best Pan-European Wholesale Carrier categories.
Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier, commented on his excitement of the nominations, “The 2012 Capacity Awards is a huge event and to be nominated in not one, but two separate categories is fantastic for TeliaSonera International Carrier. It has been a momentous 12 months for the company as a whole and to have our achievements recognized is great news. The fact that we could potentially win four awards in one evening would be an outstanding achievement for us”.
TeliaSonera’s nominations are an outstanding addition to their already successful year. Prior to being shortlisted at the 2012 Capacity Awards, TeliaSonera was the proud recipient of the award for Best Global Optical Network at the DWDM NGN Optical Networking Conference in Monaco.
Winners of the Capacity Awards will be announced at the 8th annual Gala dinner on November 13th in Amsterdam, taking place the same night as the WCA awards in London.
Does your network speak your language? Well, no matter where your network is, XKL speaks your language. XKL LLC, a privately funded engineering company, believes in developing “best of breed” optical transport systems that offer industrial strength solutions for their clients. The company provides powerful equipment and easy management, which manufactures the quickest data pipe that there is to offer.
XKL developed its line of DarkStar products to allow its customers to build private, optical networks in a simple and cost effective way. These low latency, “massive bandwidth” optical networks allow for more IT resource control, reduced power consumption and overall higher reliability.
Although the DarkStar product line offers simple, cost effective optical networks, it is just the beginning of what XKL has to offer. XKL’s solutions provide best in class latency, 400Gbps of scalable capacity to meet your company’s bandwidth needs, a Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) solution and simple optical transport.

It may seem as though owning your own network would be cumbersome and challenging – but it doesn’t have to be. The benefits of owning your own network are huge. Ownership allows companies to determine the type of network equipment to best fit their needs. Another benefit to controlling your own network is having increased stability of network assets. These assets can be easily expanded to provide nearly limitless bandwidth capabilities. All this leads to the overall control over the cost of data. Now, XKL offers a suite of solutions for nearly plug and play operation of your own private network.
One real-life case study involves an organization hampered by lack of bandwidth, space and power which was stifling their ability to expand effectively. The Japan Internet Exchange (JPIX), the largest neutral Internet Transit Exchange in Japan was growing quickly and running out of space. In order to support the increasing demand of its multiple 10G backbone network, the company needed numerous facilities for the colocation needs of major cable operators, carriers, ISPs and content providers who require proximity when interconnecting global Internet hubs.
With limited space, rack and power JPIX was unable to support its growth, and sought nearby facilities to expand with its market. They designed a distributed and redundant network to connect its multiple locations to meet new demand. JPIX’s new ‘campus’ based facility deployment required an amount of bandwidth that only dark fiber could provide. To cost effectively and efficiently fulfill the needs of over 100 interconnected Internet backbone providers, JPIX turned to Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) and created a private network.
With DWDM, a single strand of fiber can be lit up across the entire spectrum of light providing nearly endless streams of communications. DWDM expands the capacity of the existing infrastructure without incurring additional costs, other than buying the new transport equipment. This exponentially increased the company’s network capacity. It was no longer dependent on a single channel solution; it could now leverage multiple channels – literally doubling, tripling, and quadrupling capacity with each color in the spectrum. DWDM lights dark fiber.
XKL provides a full-suite of DWDM equipment to meet the needs of many different companies, from neutral Internet exchanges, like JPIX, who constructed a private, high bandwidth campus-based network to global enterprise businesses, universities, government entities, Internet Service Providers, cloud networking companies and more. Within their suite of DarkStar DWDM optical networking solutions, XKL has released a unique plug and play platform that provides cost savings and flexibility to its clients.
XKL’s DWDM platform uses a simple interface commonly used in routers which can be operated by a technician rather than an optical engineer. The Operating System is designed to provide dynamic allocation of bandwidth by managing wavelengths, power and more. DarkStar equipment is shipped pre-configured and arrives ready to be deployed.
No longer is it intimidating for organizations to have their own private network. XKL opens up new possibilities for enterprises to lower costs and increase flexibility and control to meet their own needs. With XKL, owning your own network makes sense.
Whether sharing vacation videos or executing stock trades, the amount of data the average person transmits and receives on a daily basis has grown exponentially in the past decade. The need for access to software, platforms and infrastructure as a service by businesses is growing as well as our need to increase productivity and seed innovation. With Dense Wave Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, already existing bandwidth can be unlocked to help realize the increased potential of enterprises. Enterprises can easily and cost-effectively build private optical networks with massive bandwidth, giving an alternative to the traditional solution of using expensive carrier services.
XKL’s DarkStar DWDM products enable businesses and institutions to light Dark Fiber cost-effectively and meet their bandwidth needs. XKL designs off the shelf components that use a simple, easy-to-understand software platform. DarkStar Systems also make use of industry standard or commodity components for easy access to parts, flexibility and reduced cost . DarkStar products require no optical engineering expertise. XKL has integrated a complete management package, which is accessed through a familiar router-like CLI (Command Line Interface). The company has combined most of the components of a complete fiber optics transmission system into a simple 1RU package, making DarkStar products nearly “plug and play” systems. It is designed so that technicians that operate routers can easily operate Dark Star products.
XKL concentrates on creating technology to ensure a high performance, highly available optical network that can deliver access to mission critical applications and data. Dark Star products are designed to be energy efficient by utilizing hot-swappable cooling and power components. Efficient heat management increases the life of critical components.
XKL’s Dark Star products enable companies to meet bandwidth demand by using dark fiber to create an optical network and bypassing the expensive carrier solutions. XKL makes it practical for businesses to increase bandwidth and spur productivity and innovation.
