Press Release

XKL LLC, a leading provider of fiber optic networking systems, announces that 2017 was its most commercially successful year. This achievement is attributed to enterprises’ and service providers’ continued drive to expand their 10G capabilities, as well as an aggressive push for 100G services. Diversification across XKL’s customer base resulted in significant increases from education and research networks as well as the government vertical attributing to the years’ growth.

The enthusiastic reception of XKL’s 100G statistical multiplexing platform eVolocity, as well as the launch of the DarkStar Mux/Demux with Amplifiers (DMD-A) and optional integrated optical protection switch, was another major contributor to XKL’s favorable performance. The DLA, XKL’s third generation of their in-line amplifier, was also well received by the market. Both the DMD-A and the DLA are stand-alone products used to augment any existing or new network.

“Our ability to drive more than twice as much bandwidth down a 100G link is a key differentiator,” comments Chad Lamb, Chief Systems Architect for XKL. “We can help fiber-poor entities maximize their existing network – eliminating barriers to digital transformation. 2017 was a record-breaking year for us and we expect a bright future as the adoption of the XKL product portfolio accelerates.”
