SAN JOSE, Calif .– (COMMERCIAL THREAD) –Creed, a global leader in high performance, low power connectivity solutions for 100G, 200G, 400G and 800G networks, today introduced its Osprey family of second generation Media Access Control Security (MACsec) solutions for 400G and 800G networks . Osprey devices offer 40% power savings over competitive devices and enable Credo to offer the industry’s most comprehensive family of PHY devices to support MACsec IEEE 802.1AE and IPsec (Internet Protocol Security) for 10G to 400G port interconnects used in most demanding data center environments.
The explosive growth of the data sphere, decentralization of users, disaggregation of hardware and operating systems, as well as the acceleration of the deployment of 400G + bandwidth have created an increase in the demand for end-data security. at the end. To meet this demand, data must be secure as it is processed, stored, and in transit between connected devices. In addition, the encryption must occur without loss of throughput and be performed in a low power envelope.
“Credo extends our established MACsec leadership with the industry’s most energy efficient MACsec solutions – the new Osprey 400 and Osprey 800. Osprey devices use 40% less power than competing devices at the same throughput,” said Scott Feller , Vice-President, Marketing at Credo. “The ability to deliver solutions enabling secure 400G-800G connectivity, within the defined power envelope, is the reason hyperscale cloud data centers around the world have selected Credo MACsec solutions,” continued Feller.
Credo’s high-speed Osprey MACsec devices meet the security requirements for various Ethernet data link configurations in mission-critical next-generation network infrastructure for commercial, institutional and government deployments. The latest 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption technology is integrated to provide increased data security to critical high-speed data links between servers, switches and routers. Osprey devices are certified by the Cryptographic Algorithm Validation Program (CAVP) by the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
MACsec devices are used in hyperscale, cloud, enterprise and edge data centers and service provider networks to encrypt data connectivity. With the growing reliance on the cloud for business operations, the importance of end-to-end security is increasing every day. In the Ethernet switch (L2) and routing (L3 / L3 +) market, interest in MACsec increases with each speed transition.
“MACsec’s attachment rate is higher with 400 Gbit / s products than with 100 Gbit / s. We anticipate that with the data center rapidly evolving to 100G by Lambda and 112 Gbps SerDes, MACsec will play a central and important role in the 400 Gbps and 800 Gbps markets, ”said Alan Weckel, Founder and Technology Analyst at 650 Group. “The need to minimize power consumption without sacrificing performance is as important as the need for encryption as data centers evolve. ”
