WaveLength Ring Services: Transport for Multiple Protocols
Managing a complex network with multiple applications can be difficult. Protecting it can be just as challenging.
Discover how Kaman improved disaster recovery with highly secure duplicate data centers, connected via an AT&T fiber optic ring service.
WaveLength ring services let you aggregate all your applications on a dedicated, highly secure optical network that offers the failure-resistant architecture of rings and the ability to carry your traffic, regardless of protocol or bandwidth requirements.
Supporting applications ranging from basic voice and data services to virtualization and storage area network applications, WaveLength services from AT&T allow you to:
- Manage all your traffic, including most common optical protocols, over one network
- Use Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology to transfer large amounts of data at high speeds between local locations or across the country
- Add or change applications quickly as your business needs change
Get high-availability and high performance
Wavelength Ring: A responsive, easy to manage and highly secure network using DWDM technology that is engineered to meet your unique business requirements.
The fiber optic ring architecture of WaveLength services allows you to integrate all of your application, storage and information technologies into a highly secure, failure-resistant environment. This helps maintain near-zero data loss during transmission and near-100 percent availability of mission-critical global applications.
In the event of a disaster or other disruption, the redundant architecture of WaveLength Ring services can help you get your critical applications back up and running within seconds.
If you are considering a WaveLength Ring service, here are some things to think about:
Are you running bandwidth-intensive applications?
WaveLength services use Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) technology, which can significantly increase the bandwidth that can be carried by optical fibers. This means WaveLength service is well-suited for storage applications, disk mirroring and real-time video.
Do you need to deploy a flexible security policy?
A WaveLength Ring can carry different type of traffic at different speeds. It also allows you to set different protection levels for each type of traffic, so you can apply extra protection to sensitive data such as customer information.
Do you need to support multiple network protocols?
Your WaveLength solution can be configured with SONET, DWDM, storage and Ethernet technologies. This allows it to expand easily to support applications for business continuity, virtualization, SAN extensions and more.
AT&T experts will help you assess your business needs, then custom-design a WaveLength Ring service specifically for you. Solutions can range from simple designs for handling voice service to highly customized setups with multiple applications on different protocols.
We can also discuss customizing our service level agreements to meet your needs and expectations.
Deployment of your WaveLength Ring service is customized to your solution and your network. An AT&T implementation team works with your IT staff to configure and deploy your WaveLength Ring service. They will also help ensure that other equipment and network elements interface correctly with your WaveLength Ring service and provide a smooth implementation.
Your WaveLength solution is thoroughly tested in AT&T labs before it is deployed to verify that your service is functioning properly and ready to support your business now and in the future.
WaveLength Ring service is a fully managed solution, with 24x7 monitoring to help support maximum availability. We also assign a lifecycle management team to review service level agreements monthly to help ensure your network is meeting your performance needs.
The team will also help you assess and plan for your future needs, so when you're ready to add applications or more bandwidth, your network will be ready.
WaveLength Ring customers can also view their bills and make payments online through the AT&T BusinessDirect® portal.
