Tellabs, the leading provider of Passive Optical Network (PON) solutions, and CyberSecure IPS, the leader in Unified Cyber-Physical Protection (UCP) solutions, have announced a global go-to-market partnership with far-reaching benefits to customers looking for next generation critical infrastructure protection solutions. Through this partnership, Tellabs will offer Infrastructure Protection Solutions (IPS) through its reseller program to government and enterprise customers.
Infrastructure Protection Solutions leverage both alarmed fiber cabling and fiber optic sensors to determine potential threats to critical infrastructure. Centralized control is orchestrated by real-time 24/7/365 software-defined network management. This modern fiber and software-based solution is an alternative to legacy data encryption and hardened conduit systems.
This technology is proven across a wide range of network operator and enterprise markets. It can be used to protect infrastructure and assets inside buildings (e.g. data center, telecom rooms, cables, cages, doors, floors and cabinets) and outside buildings (e.g. perimeters, pathways, fences, enclosures and manholes). It offers a better way to secure critical infrastructure because it:
- Provides Real-time visibility into critical physical-layer security
- Eliminates daily physical inspection requirements
- Increases pass rate for mandatory security inspections
- Lowers cost versus data encryption and hardened conduit
CyberSecure IPS’s patented Unified Cyber-Physical Protection technology puts Layer-1 security at the forefront, safeguarding all assets from tangible threats in an industry that often overlooks physical layer vulnerabilities.
Tellabs clients, including service providers, government agencies, hospitals, schools, and smart cities, will now have the option to complement industry-leading Passive Optical LANs with a best-in-class Infrastructure Protection Solution.
