The ODC2 ULTRA transponder service card enables network operators to deploy ultra-latent 16G GEN5 Fibre Channel networks with speeds of up to 14.025 Gbps (Gigabits per second) and up to 10 Gigabit Ethernet. It also supports backwards compatibility for 4G and 8G Fibre Channel.
Robust AES-256, NIST DP800-90A compliant encryption securely encrypts data at Layer One using Diffie-Hellman Key Exchange to prevent the interception of company confidential information. This makes the ODC2 ULTRA card an ideal fit for data centres in finance, education and healthcare sectors in addition to data centre interconnect (DCI) and disaster recovery applications.
In addition, the transponder card helps to avoid data loss from errors with up to two REGEN instances per card and three-stage regeneration FEC.
