XKL's DarkStar Optical Transport System Achieves Fastest Latency

Enterprise fiber optic networking equipment provider, XKL, has announced the results from its in-depth lab testing of long haul fiber on a 1650 km test bed. The findings revealed the achievement of the fastest latency of 8.067 ms with a one-way data transport speed of 400 Gbps.

XKL's DarkStar optical transport systems and the fiber were included while measuring the latency. Normally, fiber test beds used for testing re-circulate a 100 km loop of fiber. However, XKL performs its tests on the total distance of the fiber inclusive of equipment. This allows simulation of the worst-case conditions and the imperfections in fiber that occur on the field.

The current tests revealed that per optical transport system the latency of the XKL optical transport equipment and fiber does not exceed 28.75 ns and per in-line amplifier system the equipment and fiber latency do not exceed 180 ns.

XKL employs precise engineering and design factors for successfully utilizing the most recent technology. The products offered by XKL utilizes all optical amplification due to the company’s approach to optical transport. The company’s products are completely integrated 1RU systems and contain all of the necessary optical components.

The CEO of XKL and Cisco Systems co-founder, Len Bosack, stated that the company's product line optimizes fiber and maximizes data throughput. To get an effective simulation of fiber installations XKL had used SMF-28e and SMF-28 fiber in various conditions and ages, he added.
