PacketLight's PL-2000M muxponder/transponder provides a 30% decrease
in solution costs and double the spectral efficiency

PacketLight
Networks
, a leading provider of DWDM and optical fiber networking
solutions, announced a partnership with Atlantic
Metro
, to upgrade their existing dense division wavelength
multiplexing (DWDM) network routes to 200G capacity. PacketLight
extended capacity using its alien wavelength solution and adding a 200G
single coherent wavelength. Atlantic Metro provides cloud hosting,
nationwide network connectivity, and secure data center colocation to
over 1,100 customers ranging from Fortune 500 enterprises, to healthcare
organizations, legal firms, web start-ups, media, and retail.

Atlantic Metro integrated PacketLight's PL-2000M flexible
muxponder/transponder solution with a built-in optical amplifier and
optical switch to provide increased capacity to their network at three
different metro locations, with compatibility for 4 x 40GbE and 4 x
10GbE protocols.

"With data consumption increasing exponentially year-over-year, the need
for a higher capacity network that supports 200G is a requirement for
modern IT infrastructure," says Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight
Networks. "By leveraging our PL-2000M solution, Atlantic Metro was able
to provide their customers with the capacity needed to mitigate network
congestion, all in a 1U footprint to promote massive OPEX and CAPEX
savings."

PacketLight's vendor-agnostic solution allows a simple upgrade to
Atlantic Metro's existing optical infrastructure layer without the need
for a "rip and replace" of DWDM Muxes. The 200G uplink is tunable and
covers the entire ITU 50GHz and 100GHz grids, providing Atlantic Metro
with a simple way to make necessary adjustments and select the required
wavelength. The PL-2000M is equipped with on-board Layer-1 (the physical
layer) security, which adds the lowest amount of latency for secure data
transfer across a network.

"PacketLight's solution was the perfect fit for our need to add capacity
to our network in a simple and affordable way," says Stephen Klenert,
Chief Strategy Officer & Co-Founder of Atlantic Metro. "We were able to
implement their equipment with no changes to our existing network
architecture and most importantly no impact to existing customer
circuits."
