The Department of Defense’s (DoD) Joint Interoperability Testing Command (JITC) adds LGS Innovations’ 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) and 1626 Light Manager (LM) to JITC’s “Approved Product List Certification.”
The certification provides every DoD and civilian agency within the federal government the assurance that both the 1830 Photonic Service Switch and 1626 Light Manager will meet required specifications and work together with other JITC-certified network hardware and software, says LGS Innovations, which is an independent subsidiary of Alcatel-Lucent.
“Achieving JITC certification for both the 1830 Photonic Service Switch and the 1626 Light Manager means that LGS Innovations can deliver essential large bandwidth transport for both regional and long-haul applications, as well as optical signal amplification across all wavelengths, substantially reducing costs to federal agencies,” said Kevin Kelly, LGS Innovations’ chief executive officer.
“The 1830 Photonic Service Switch and 1626 Light Manager provide the flexibility and bandwidth that warfighters and civilian agency personnel require to support communication services required today, and adapt to the changing demands of the future,” Kelly added.
Federal agencies can benefit from the flexible high-bandwidth services that the 1830 PSS and 1626 LM can bring when providing services between government locations whether the locations are ten miles or thousands of miles apart, according to LGS Innovations. The 1830 PSS and 1626 LM can help maximize more efficient use of leased fiber networks within a metropolitan area, interconnections between research centers, connections between data centers, or connections on the battlefield. Both the warfighter and the civilian manager can realize state-of-the-art bandwidth management, robust signal amplification, and reduced costs with this technology, the company says.
