(SEATTLE, WA – August 8, 2012) ) XKL, LLC, a leading-edge provider of enterprise fiber optic networking equipment receives a 2011 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award for its DarkStar® DSM10 Optical Transport System. TMC, a global, integrated media company who evaluates hundreds of entries each year for its Communications Solutions Awards, selects winners based on innovative technology solutions.
The DarkStar® DSM10 is part of the XKL optical transport product suite that allows enterprises to take advantage of the dark fiber already in the ground, enabling incredible bandwidth for inter-campus and campus-datacenter links with unrivaled ease of use and value. A fundamental XKL design tenet is that the equipment used in the development of a reliable Internet must ride on a simple, easy-to-understand software platform. XKL architecture puts that belief into practice by organizing key functions into simplified processes or tasks that are often relegated to separate hardware units to perform. If a particular process fails, it can be easily identified and addressed. This rational approach is replicated throughout the architecture, supporting the twin goals of creating cost-effective systems that exhibit very high reliability.
“DarkStar DSM systems give network operators additional flexibility and control when it comes to configuring interfaces with soft select ability of 1G to 10G data rates,” comments Len Bosack, Founder and CEO of XKL. “Our architecture is elegantly simple, providing optical transport with an easy to use router-like management structure and best in class latency — latency as low as the inherent physics of the fiber itself.”
“XKL, LLC was chosen to receive this 2011 Product of the Year Award for creating outstanding advancements in communications,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “DarkStar DSM10 Optical Transport System has proven benefits for its customers and provides ROI for the companies that use it. Congratulations to the entire team at XKL, LLC. I look forward to more innovative solutions from them in the coming year.”

The most innovative products and services brought to the market from March 2011 through March 2012 were chosen as winners of the Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award.
