Zayo using Infinera DTN-X to deliver Terabit capacity for SC13

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), and privately owned Zayo Group LLC of Boulder, CO, USA, an international provider of fiber-based bandwidth infrastructure services and carrier-neutral colocation and interconnection services, have announced the delivery of 1 terabit per second (1Tb/s) super-channel transmission capacity in support of the SCinet network for the Super Computing 2013 (SC13) conference at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, CO (18-21 November).

This is the first time that 1Tb/s of super-channel transmission capacity will be deployed on SCinet’s network, delivered with Infinera’s DTN-X platform. Zayo will also demonstrate the rapid provisioning of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services from the show floor in Denver to Chicago. Zayo offers 100GbE services to high-bandwidth customers including research and education institutions, Internet content providers, and government agencies. Infinera is a supplier of multi-terabit transport capacity for Zayo’s 100GbE services.

SCinet is a specialized network created each year to support the Super Computing conference. Brought together by academia, government, and industry groups, the high-capacity network supports applications and experiments conducted throughout the conference. It serves as the platform that will link the Colorado Convention Center to research and commercial networks around the world. The demonstration marks the first delivery of terabit capacity and the fastest 100GbE provisioning in SCinet history.

“The delivery of terabit service on SCinet demonstrates how fast Zayo can deploy capacity for our customers,” says David Dunn, VP of wavelength product at Zayo. “Through our collaboration with Infinera on this deployment, we are demonstrating our ability to expand our 100GbE services to accommodate the bandwidth-driven needs of our customers,” he adds.
