DANTE selects Infinera DTN-X platform for GEANT Research and Education Network
Research and education network operator DANTE (Delivery of Advanced Network Technology to Europe) has selected the DTXN-X platform from Infinera Corp. (NASDAQ: INFN) for the pan-European GÉANT network that it operates on behalf of Europe’s national research and education networks (NRENs).GÉANT directly connects 17 major European cities in 16 countries across 12,000 km of fiber. Together with Europe's NRENs, the network provides connectivity for 40 million researchers and millions of students in over 8,000 institutions across 40 countries. Some of the world’s largest scientific institutions rely on GÉANT’s network, including CERN for its Large Hadron Collider (LHC) research, and the European Very Long Baseline Interferometry Network (EVN) for radio astronomy research.Following a rigorous competitive bidding process, DANTE selected the new Infinera DTN-X platform to deliver the scalability, simplicity, and efficiency demanded by researchers conducting some of the world’s most advanced scientific experiments. Infinera’s DTN-X platform will enable GÉANT’s to support multi-terabit transmission The optical layer of GÉANT’s network transports massive amounts of data to support experiments and applications that are crucial to academic research. The LHC is one of the largest scientific experiments in the world, generating about 25 petabytes of data per year. Many of these experiments require large amounts of bandwidth very quickly, and a key factor in DANTE’s selection of the DTN-X was “Bandwidth Virtualization” which leverages integrated OTN switching and a GMPLS control plane to deploy large amounts of optical bandwidth rapidly.Infinera’s DTN-X platform will also deliver long-reach 500-Gbps FlexCoherent superchannels across routes on GÉANT’s network, such as the 1,240 km Frankfurt to Copenhagen route, scaling the capacity of the network while lowering operational costs. The DTN-X is upgradeable to 1-Tbps long-reach superchannels and MPLS switching in the future, providing scalability with investment protection.“We are impressed by Infinera’s PIC technology and the DTN-X platform,” said Michael Enrico, CTO at DANTE. “From significantly simplifying our operations and reducing the time to deploy bandwidth to fundamentally lowering our total cost of ownership –these were all factors that we considered against more conventional competitors.”
Juniper doubles the capacity of T Series core routers
Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR) has unveiled a capacity upgrade to the TXP multi-chassis routing system for all existing Juniper Networks T4000 and T1600 core routers. The company claims that the upgrade delivers unmatched system scalability and helps operators protect their investment in equipment by extending the lifespan and performance of their network.Multi-chassis systems continue to be a critical technology for service providers to scale their network infrastructure while ensuring operational continuity and optimizing capital expenditures. The new TXP system more than doubles the capacity of the previous technology generation. This capacity upgrade can be completed in-service, providing service providers with the financial and operational flexibility to expand network capacity as and where required.Since the first shipment in 2002, well over 7,000 T Series routers have been deployed in the top 200 networks worldwide, Juniper asserts. The company says its T Series IP/MPLS multi-service core routers provide the features and multi-terabit scale that service providers need to handle massive growth in core bandwidth requirements. The field-proven in-service upgradability provides customers guaranteed access to future T Series platform innovation, resulting in investment protection, the company says. The TXP multi-chassis routing system also simplifies pay-as-you grow installation and expansion with standards-based cabling and pluggable optics, according to Juniper.The TXP multi-chassis routing system supports up to four T4000 and eightT1600 routers, giving a total multi-system capacity of up to 22 Tbps. In future, capacity will be expandable up to 64 Tbps."In order to scale their networks today, large service providers use the multi-chassis capabilities of their core routers, as scaling requirements continue to grow,” said Michael Howard, principal analyst, Infonetics Research. “Juniper's expansion of the TXP multi-chassis system will help operators meet their growth challenges due to the TXP's flexible scaling, operational continuity, and investment protection -- three components of any service provider's expansion strategy. This latest generation TXP features the innovation in the multi-chassis interconnect of off-the-shelf pluggable optics and industry-standard cabling to reduce the cost and operational complexity of deploying and managing multi-chassis systems."
Alcatel-Lucent unveils 7950 XRS core routers
Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext and NYSE: ALU) has taken the wraps off its entry in the large-scale core router market. The 7950 XRS (Extensible Routing System) family, based on the company’s highly touted FP3 400-Gbps chipset, offers 32-Tbps capacity and 160 ports of 100-Gigabit Ethernet in the top of the line incarnation, the 7950 XRS-40.The 7950 XRS family has three members:The 7950 XRS-40, which in addition to the capacity figures mentioned above is designed to accommodate up to 2 terabits per slot. It can be upgraded to multi-chassis configurations to ensure continued growth as needed. It will be available in the first half of 2013.The 7950 XRS-20 is a 16-Tbps core router with support for eighty 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces in a single rack, which Alcatel-Lucent asserts is 5X more than the current norm. It can be upgraded to a 7950 XRS-40 and/or multi-chassis configuration, and also will accommodate up to 2 terabits per slot. It will be available in the third quarter of 2012 and is currently in several trials. The 7950 XRS-16c is a 6.4-Tbps core router, aimed at smaller points of presence (POPs)/nodes requiring maximum agility. It sports up to thirty-two 100 Gigabit Ethernet interfaces and is designed to accommodate 1 terabit per slot. It will be available in the first half of 2013.In addition to high capacity, the 7950 XRS line is designed to offer cost-effective operation. The platforms offer power savings of more than 66 percent versus typical core routers, the company asserts. The company is positioning the family at both IP backbone networks as well as regional and metro core networks.The 7950 XRS line also plays into Alcatel-Lucent’s IP/optical convergence strategy via the following features:support for transponder integration into the 7950 XRS at 10G, 40G, and 100G speeds efficient grooming of traffic from the IP layer into the optical transport network common management with the 5620 Service Aware Manager (SAM) platform an Optical Extension Shelf capability that integrates the 1830 Photonic Service Switch (PSS) with the 7950 XRS.Alcatel-Lucent emphasizes that the new routers are built to scale. The 7950 XRS backplane and optical interconnect are designed to handle slot capacities of 2 Tbps, multi-chassis clustering that enables the system to scale up to 240 Tbps in the future, as well as support 400 Gigabit Ethernet and 1-Tbps interfaces as they become available.The 7950 XRS routers will leverage Alcatel-Lucent’s existing Service Router Operating System (SR OS).The company rounded up several endorsements for the 750 XRS launch.“Verizon is experiencing tremendous growth in metro Ethernet services.
