Ik kwam via Slashdot bij deze press release van Ciena Corp., over een nieuwe optische netwerk technologie met een bandbreedte van 2 Terabit per sec. Dat klinkt niet vies. Hier heb je wat info uit de pr:
CIENA Corporation (Nasdaq: CIEN) today announced MultiWave CoreStream™, a next generation of dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) optical transport systems that will enable carriers to expand to up to 2 terabits of transport capacity. CoreStream is designed for use in high capacity long-haul applications and is part of CIENA's new LightWorks™ architecture for building intelligent optical networks.
"CIENA CoreStream's scalable platform enables carriers to economically address today's bandwidth challenges while confidently building in network scalability to address future bandwidth requirements," said Patrick Nettles, chief executive officer and president at CIENA Corporation.
Incorporating CIENA's field proven optical technologies and scalable system architecture, CoreStream lays the foundation for the next generation of intelligent optical networks.
"CoreStream moves DWDM and optical transport beyond ultimate channel count comparisons to what carriers truly care about - forward-looking network scalability and protection of invested capital," said Steve Alexander, CIENA's chief technology officer. "Since we brought our first MultiWave system to market, we focused on giving carriers access to immediate bandwidth with the peace of mind that the equipment they install today will allow them to grow that bandwidth without major network reconstruction or "sunk" capital costs going forward. CoreStream extends CIENA's scalability philosophy to the 2 terabit per second range."
