A leading provider of fiber optic networking systems, engineered for the future
Privately owned and operated by Len Bosack, Cisco Systems co-founder, XKL identifies emerging problems within the network infrastructure landscape and engineers flexible, easy-to-manage optical networking solutions for data centers, enterprises, service providers, Internet exchanges and more. This forward-thinking approach provides the solutions necessary for the future growth and development of the communications industry.
XKL engineers, innovates, develops, tests and maintains complex networks suited for Layer 1, allowing for dynamic bandwidth allocation and a pay-as-you-grow model. Energy efficient with flexible architecture, XKL’s easy-to-deploy high capacity DWDM systems are built to provide customers with everything they need, and nothing they don’t. And along the way, XKL’s team works closely with customers to engineer solutions for specialized and successful deployments, providing complete customer satisfaction.
Enterprise networks are complex and are becoming more so with every new technology advance and approach. To build a strong structure, networks must adhere to key principles. At XKL led by Len Bosack, we have a simple philosophy: don’t add complexity where it is not absolutely needed.
Our products are designed with Enterprise and Data Center IT staff in mind. No optical experience is required because our products are built for router technicians. Agility cannot be achieved without first tackling complexity.
With a life cycle that surpasses 9 years of service and requires no OPEX to manage, XKL products are built for the highest level of performance and uptime with hot-swappable power, fans, lasers, and hitless upgrades.
XKL was launched by Cisco Systems co-founder Len Bosack. Len is the 2009 recipient of IEEE Computer Society’s prestigious Computer Entrepreneur Award for founding Cisco Systems and pioneering and advancing the commercialization of routing technology and the profound changes this technology enabled in the computer industry.
U.S. businesses wireline data is expected to triple from 2012 to 2017, driven by cloud computing and video. Enterprises, especially IT departments, must set and execute a strategy to manage increasing bandwidth demands and plan for technology shifts both in the near term (big data, cloud computing and Ethernet) and the longer term (Internet of Things).
