Application Note: Research And Education Networks

  1. 1. APPLICATION NOTEResearch andEducation Networks “As we continue to facilitate high-end research applications that span the globe, ADVA Optical Networking offers us the technol- ogy to provide our members the performance they need.” Don Welch, Merit NetworkCollaboration without BordersNew ideas are born every day. Some of them lead to innovations – others don’t. R&E institutions have themandate to educate students and generate ideas that lead to innovations and that ultimately further developmentof the human race. Turning ideas into innovations requires smart brains that are connected to other smart brainsvia powerful networking technologies. Collaboration is key – researchers, students and educators work best whenthey can effectively communicate and share information. Traditional leased-line network models can no longercope with the communication demands of today’s R&E community. Researchers require networks that deliver anybandwidth at any time, anywhere. Bespoke optical networks are the only answer. They are the key to unlockingthe true potential of any scientific organization.Our Solution –High-Speed Connectivity for High-Speed BrainsMembers of the research community are the classic we have one of the most comprehensive featureinnovators and early adopters of new technology. sets in Ethernet-over-WDM. We offer an extensiveThe ability to roll-out large amounts of transmission set of multiplexing transponder options that utilizecapacity is paramount for this group of professionals. wavelengths in a way that enables you to customizeFiber-optic transmission technology has evolved your network to achieve the design flexibility andto deliver Tbit/s of capacity over distances that provisioning speed you need.span tens, hundreds and thousands of kilometers,transmitting any form of data natively at the speed of Our FSP 3000 is engineered to drive energy-efficiencylight. With up to 8Tbit/s of flexible capacity available throughout your R&E network infrastructure.on our FSP 3000, we offer one of the highest density Incorporating high-density 10Gbit/s and 100Gbit/sand most scalable optical networking solutions transponders with and without multiplexing capability,available today. we significantly reduce space and energy costs. Our solution eliminates the high operational cost barrierAn effective research network should offer the control normally associated with leading-edge technology.and flexibility to allocate bandwidth-on-demand and toprovide tools for ease-of-management. Incorporatingthe latest multi-degree ROADM technology, ourFSP 3000 is embedded with our multi-layer RAYcontrolGMPLS control plane software. This combinationresults in true network automation, dynamic routingand self-healing, accelerating network operations andunlocking the potential of scientific organizations.R&E backbone networks are moving quickly towardan all-Ethernet infrastructure.
