ADVA, Juniper and University of Michigan Demo OpenFlow for Massive Data Transport

ADVA Optical Networking, Juniper Networks and the University of Michigan are showcasing a demo at SC13 that uses OpenFlow to transport multiple petabytes of data.

The demo features Juniper Networks' PTX Series Packet Transport Routers, including their integrated 100G coherent transponder, and ADVA Optical Networking's 100G Core technology. The ADVA FSP 3000 and its 100G Core transponder can talk directly to the Juniper Networks' PTX router and its 100G coherent transponder over an error free long haul circuit.

“We live in an era of mass collaboration, an era of sharing data, resources and knowledge, an era defined by global interworking,” said Niall Robinson, vice president, PLM, Packet Optical Solutions, ADVA Optical Networking. “This trend will continue to increase and will continue to demand a supporting network that can transport enormous volumes of data. Research and education organizations are acutely aware of this. To be a part of global scientific conversations demands a network that can scale, a network that can meet the petabyte era. That's the very essence of this demo. We're not just showing an isolated technology here, we're showcasing a fully realized global network; one based on a seamless interworking of optical layer and Supercore routing technology. This isn't just a vision, it's a reality.”

“Through our partnership with ADVA Optical Networking and the University of Michigan, we’re doing our part to advance the research community’s ability to stay ahead of the relentless pace of modern scientific breakthrough and discovery. Without a strong supporting network infrastructure to transport huge amounts of scientific information, these discoveries would likely be much more limited,” commented Paul Obsitnik, vice president, Service Provider Marketing, Juniper Networks. “Together, we've built a live network that is successfully transporting huge amounts of data, error-free, on a global scale. This demonstration underscores our commitment to an open ecosystem where scientific organizations can migrate from their existing networks to a multi-vendor infrastructure that can accommodate the demands of big data and the demands of future scientific collaboration.”
