Redmond, WA – August 27, 2018 – XKL LLC, a leading provider of fiber optic networking systems, announces a new Wi-Fi infrastructure solution based on its DQT10 transponder, providing a point-to-multi-point topology solution for fiber-to-wireless hybrid networks. This solution enables educational organizations, municipalities, and enterprises that deploy Wi-Fi networks to extend their reach up to 80km with up to 36 wireless access points per 1RU system, enabling growth and enhanced flexibility.
New technologies will dramatically improve existing wireless and fiber infrastructures by increasing data speeds, enabling faster video downloads, lowering latencies, and offering enhanced levels of security and reliability. And as organizations leverage disruptive technologies, such as IoT and smart cities, their wireless and fiber infrastructures must support computing bandwidth demand in real time.
“Data growth is hitting record levels and networks must be prepared to accommodate,” comments Chad Lamb, XKL’s Chief Systems Architect. “XKL focuses on driving results for our customers through personalized customer engagement and our highly flexible suite of products. With our new Wi-Fi enhancement solution, we prepare organizations to be data-driven, and fortify their networks to adapt to today’s technologies, while paving the way for future innovations.”
XKL’s new Wi-Fi fiber-to-wireless hybrid solution is a special application of XKL’s DQT10 series, which is part of the XKL DarkStar Transponder family of products. As a Layer 1 device, the DQT10 is based on XKL’s FlexArc architecture, which enables it to act as a distribution hub for wireless applications, with MIMO access points supporting 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless networks. This increases distance from a traditional 10km-reach Ethernet implementation to an 80km-reach, providing 10GE (or soft-configurable 1GE) at each wireless access point, as well as increased flexibility and efficiencies across metro and regional wireless networks.
XKL, a U.S.-based company, designs, develops, and manufactures high quality, high capacity DWDM optical networking products for domestic and international enterprise, carrier/service provider, data center, and cloud networks. The company, headquartered in Redmond, Washington, is privately owned and operated by Cisco Systems co-founder Len Bosack.
