The network demands of enterprise offices, warehouses and data centers vary depending on different factors such as bandwidth needs, distance, application requirements and so on. To connect smaller branch offices, retail locations and similar sites, enterprises will use a variety of services, from leased circuits and traditional virtual private networks (VPNs) to managed optical services and newer software-defined wide area networks (SD-WANs). But in the core networks that connect their larger sites, enterprises can lower costs and gain greater flexibility and control by building their own regional, national or even international transport networks. These core links carry vital corporate and end-customer information between the corporate office and a data center, or between data centers, giving rise to the need for in-flight encryption. For enterprises that depend on secure, reliable connectivity in their core networks, private intelligent optical networks prove to be a very economical yet high-performance solution, providing the capacity, low latency, security and agility required for today’s and tomorrow’s enterprise operations.
