Infinera Demos 100G On-demand At Supercomputing Conference

100Gbps software-defined networking packet services featured at SC15 in Texas

Infinera, a maker of InP photonic integrated circuits (PICs) and network equipment, and Corsa Technology, a software-defined networking (SDN) company, have announced a new demonstration of SDN-enabled on-demand 100 gigabits per second (100G) packet services.

The demo, which is taking place this week at the International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC15) in Austin, Texas, shows the feasibility of delivering the scalable, high-bandwidth services required by high-performance computing (HPC) and advanced research & education (R&E) applications. Features include dynamic multilayer provisioning, precision switching and terabit traffic management, over a converged packet-optical transport network.

Infinera and Corsa collaborated to create the proof-of-concept demo using Corsa's 100G DP6400 switching platform, Infinera's Cloud Xpress metro optical transport platform and Infinera-developed SDN control capabilities.

Also at the SC15 conference, Infinera has announced it will deliver 1.5 terabits per second (Tb/s) of transmission capacity with network firm CenturyLink to support SCinet at the SC15 conference. SCinet is a powerful network created each year to support the research applications and experiments taking place at the conference, connecting the Austin Convention Center to networks around the world.

The 1.5 Tb/s of line-side capacity will connect the Austin Convention Center to CenturyLink's global fibre optic network, using the Infinera DTN-X platform. The terabit deployment will demonstrate CenturyLink's rapid provisioning of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services from the conference to CenturyLink's point of presence in Austin and to six major US cities across the country.

CenturyLink operates a 250,000-route-mile US fibre network and a 300,000-route-mile international transport network. Through a dedicated network connection, the company delivers 100 GbE Optical Wavelength Service to enterprise customers; research, financial and educational institutions; and Internet content providers across the US and in select international cities.

The DTN-X Family is a key part of the Infinera Intelligent Transport Network, and includes the chassis-based XTC series and the new XT series. The DTN-X Family was recently extended with the addition of Infinera's DTN-X XTC-2 and XTC-2E for metro applications as well as with the DTN-X XT-500, a new compact platform to address long-haul high-capacity point-to-point interconnect applications.



AngelTech Live III: Watch the virtual event ON-DEMAND!

AngelTech Live III was broadcast live on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and features online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

The event covered the whole spectrum of key developments affecting the compound semiconductor industry. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. This was considered a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

With 3 interactive sessions over 1 day AngelTech Live III proved to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
