High speed point-to-point
Do you need to get large volumes of data moving, such as for backup to disaster recovery centres or storage area network replication?
Optus WaveLink can connect your state capital city offices with a dedicated point-to-point Layer 2 network based on Wave Division Multiplexing (WDM) technology. It provides long haul, inter-city and metropolitan transmission between Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney.
High performance, high quality, and highly reliable across our secure national optical service using coarse (CWDM) and dense (DWDM) wavelength division multiplexing
Transport for Ethernet and Fibre Channel layer 2 services to business
Fully managed service. Our technical specialists proactively monitor your link so problems can be immediately detected and rectified.
Dedicated bandwidth with predictable performance - 1 Gbps to 10 Gbps.
Secure connectivity you can depend on - Optus WaveLink service is delivered over a secure point-to-point connection. It is highly resilient and provides outstanding performance.
Reduced network congestion - Bandwidth is dedicated. This is especially critical for businesses operating with bandwidth-intensive applications.
Optus WaveLink is a Layer 2 point-to-point network based on WDM technology. WDM technology transmits different colours (wavelengths) of laser light via the same optical fibre at the same time, increasing the amount of information that can be transferred along a single media.
The ITU-T has defined two multiplexing schemes, coarse (CWDM) and dense (DWDM) wavelength division multiplexing, according to the spacing of wavelengths, number of channels, and the ability to amplify the multiplexed signals in the optical space.
WaveLink services provide the flexibility to combine both CWDM and DWDM according to transmission design.
Optus WaveLink can benefit organisations requiring reliable and low latency transport for one or more of the following functions:
- High-speed data (LAN and WAN traffic)
- Distance learning
- Converged access combining delivery of voice, video, data and image applications
- Mainframe and server file transfers
- Strategic peering
- CAD and imaging transmission
- Host disaster recovery
- High-volume transaction communications
- Self-hosted web servers
- Medium and large sized organisations using Internet or E-commerce applications
- Content providers
- Centralised data centres
