Infrastructure and Asset Protection

Tellabs Protect® is an infrastructure and asset protection solution for inside buildings and across campuses that leverages fiber cabling, Optical LAN and fiber sensors for strict cybersecurity.

A better way to protect your critical infrastructure and assets

Infrastructure Protection Solution

Today’s infrastructure and asset protection solutions are largely ineffective and costly. Their weakness can be directly attributed to too much reliance on human interaction which often results in non-optimal reactive post-breach actions. Many critical facilities and assets rely on physical human inspections, which can be inaccurate and slow to detect breaches. For communications systems, the legacy security solutions are costly and use data encryption and hardened conduit.

Tellabs Protect® is an infrastructure and asset protection solutions that takes advantage of both alarmed fiber cabling and fiber optic sensors to determine potential threats to critical infrastructure. Centralized control is orchestrated by real-time 24/7/365 software-defined network management. This modern fiber and software-based solution is an alternative to legacy data encryption and hardened conduit systems.

This technology is proven across a wide range of network operator and enterprise markets. It can be used to protect infrastructure and assets inside buildings (e.g. data center, telecom rooms, cables, cages, doors, floors and cabinets) and outside buildings (e.g. perimeters, pathways, fences, enclosures and manholes).

Quick Facts

  • Provides real-time visibility into critical physical-layer security
  • Eliminates daily physical inspection requirements
  • Increases pass rate for mandatory security inspections
  • Lowers cost versus data encryption and hardened conduit
  • Protect assets 24/7/365 with automated monitoring
