CISCO, 100g . . . Check!

March 27, 2012 - 0 Comments

Cisco continues to pass on 100G . . . To be clear, that means “pass” with flying colors. 

To wit:

  • Cisco recently announced that SURFnet has completed a technology test of Cisco’s 100G DWDM solution between the National Supercomputing Center, SARA, in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, and CERN in Geneva, Switzerland, using the Cisco ONS 15454 M6 MSTP. The Cisco system uses DWDM to unite multiple optical carrier signals on a single optical fiber, leading to several benefits, including increased fiber capacity.

SURFnet enables collaboration between researchers, teachers, and students in the Netherlands using information and computing technology and together with partners offers high speed communication services between leading innovation centers and universities in Europe and throughout the world.

  • Lumos Networks, a fiber-based service provider in the mid-Atlantic region of the U.S., has successfully completed a technology test of Cisco’s 100 Gigabit (100G) coherent DWDM solution across its service area. This performance validation confirms that Lumos Networks can meet growing customer demand for high-capacity bandwidth on its existing 10G fiber plant simply by deploying 100G line cards in its current Cisco ONS 15454 platforms.
