Defense-in-depth security, a well-recognized security strategy, is a multi-layered approach to that ensures no single point of failure can compromise the entire system, amongst its other benefits. It involves implementing multiple defensive measures, which do not rely on each other, to safeguard digital assets against even the most advanced attacks. Learn more:

There are a number of ways of implementing multi-channel transmission over single within environments. One of the most common implementations in datacom is wavelength division multiplexing (). In WDM, multiple data streams are transmitted in different frequency/wavelength ranges through a single optical fiber. Three of the main wavelength regions that are used in WDM are the O-band (1260–1360 nm), C-band (1530–1565 nm) and L-band (1565–1625 nm). Learn more:
