About this talk

Organizations often operate data centers in multiple locations and are often geographically distributed to provide scale and disaster recovery capabilities. As with any fabric topology, scalability, data integrity and security are key requirements. This webinar will discuss how Fibre Channel can be effectively deployed in these applications using optical transport technology. Topics to be covered: • Optical Transport 101: A brief survey of optical networking (DWDM) technology • Fibre Channel transport via OTN • Robustness: Optical transport protection options: Resiliency against fiber outages • Security: Optical transport OTN encryption: No-overhead layer 1 encryption that can be combined with IPSec or other higher-layer security protocols
