Ericsson and Telstra's intercontinental 10Gbps encrypted link
The trial demonstrates, according to Ericsson, that advanced security can be achieved while data is in transit across large networks, in this case between Los Angeles and Melbourne. Ciena's encryption solution is described by the company as ultra-low latency.
Speaking of the trial, Ericsson’s Emilio Romeo said: "This time last year Telstra and Ericsson achieved an encryption trial between Melbourne and Sydney. We have now extended the distance with data in transit encryption at 10Gbps, which is the typical speed used today over these distances without encryption.
