Ciena to power SC13 with 400g network

Share this on social media:

The network specialist Ciena has announced that its high-capacity packet switching and transport solutions are supporting the SCinet network at Supercomputing 2013 (SC13) in Denver next week.

As part of its backing for this international conference on high-performance computing, Ciena will power a 400G link with its WaveLogic3 technology to connect the convention centre to research networks across the globe. Ciena will also provide 100G technology to enable terabit-scale layer 2 switching to support SCinet production traffic within the conference’s local area network itself.

Additionally, Ciena’s booth (#1924) will feature demonstrations of the company’s technology portfolio, highlighting how it is helping many of the world’s most advanced high-capacity networks increase bandwidth and allowing researchers to connect and collaborate on important scientific projects and discoveries. Ciena’s recently announced SDN testbed will carry a live demonstration of a multi-layer SDN controller with autonomic operations intelligence applications to the booth.

At the conference Rod Wilson, the company's senior director of network architecture, will give a talk entitled: 'Ultra-High Speed, Long Reach 400G Transmission Made Real' at 10:30am on 21 November, in room 503/504. This discussion will address the latest developments in Ciena’s terabit networking innovations, providing insight on how Ciena is making 400G a reality for transport networks through the efficient use of the optical spectrum.
