Large campus-like institutions and R&D departments process an almost inconceivable amount of data, including video. These organizations require a fast, reliable and secure connection. Oftentimes these metro or campus networks need to expand to connect multiple locations, making scalability among their most critical needs.

DarkStar’s Regional DWDM Networks grow metro networks into regional networks easily and economically. Integrated EDFA amplifiers and standalone in-line amplifiers protract the metro DWDM network’s range into a regional network, extending the metro network 80km range to a regional network 400km. Separating the optical backbone from Layer 2 and 3 and modularizing the network simplifies the complexity of card cage chassis transport. In short, our DarkStar appliances provide capacity and range you didn’t know existed.

DarkStar optical networking systems can connect with any mix of traffic separated by up to 2,000 km. We can help you grow metro networks into regional networks. Familiar command-line interface control and integrated network management using standard protocols keep packet manipulation in the switches and routers, where it belongs.

Rest easy with carrier–class redundancy and extreme reliability.
