The Nokia 1830 Security Management Server (SMS) provides unified key management across optical and microwave transport networks in support of business-critical applications
As more content and services move to the cloud, providing high-speed, low-latency, and secure connectivity among data centers and enterprise branch office locations is crucial. As part of a defense-in-depth security strategy, adding Layer 1 encryption with strong symmetric keys is necessary to secure network services today and for tomorrow’s quantum computing era.
The Nokia 1830 Security Management Server (SMS) is a secure, scalable module that supports centralized key management for the entire cryptographic life cycle of each encrypted wavelength service. Using a powerful processor and security enhanced operating system, it generates the quantum safe keys from physical spawned entropy to perform the encryption. It also provides highly scalable and unified key management in support of secure business-critical data communications.
As a key part of the Nokia Secure Optical and Microwave Transport solutions, the 1830 SMS helps you secure in-flight data, avoiding sensitive material from getting into the wrong hands, thus preventing business loss and interruption. The 1830 SMS generates quantum safe keys for both optical (1830 PSS) and microwave (9500 MPR) transport platforms to secure a wide range of applications and services, including:
- Data center interconnect
- LAN interconnect
- High-performance computing
- Wavelength services
- Carrier Ethernet services
