Secure high speed-data transfer
The rise of digital integration and digital controls in essential infrastructure, such as power grids or communication networks, paves the way for new levels of flexibility, greater functionality, and new monetization options.
At the same time, the security, resilience, and reliable and efficient management of such infrastructures are becoming increasingly relevant. These new challenges were the topics of a discussion about secure high speed data transfer and photonics-based data centres, hosted at Fraunhofer IZM on December 8, 2015. The attendees discussed a range of issues in the field, covering everything from tap-proof communication lines to Tb/s data connections or innovative data centre and network architectures.
