SC15: CenturyLink and Infinera Deliver 1.5 Tbps of Super-Channel DWDM

CenturyLink is delivering 1.5 terabits per second (Tbps) of super-channel transmission capacity to support SCinet at this week's International Conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis (SC15)p in Austin.

The 1.5 Tb/s of line-side capacity will connect the Austin Convention Center to CenturyLink's global fiber optic network, utilizing the Infinera DTN-X platform.

The terabit deployment will demonstrate CenturyLink's rapid provisioning of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services from the conference to CenturyLink's point of presence in Austin and to six major U.S. cities across the country.

"This deployment demonstrates the power of CenturyLink's network and its ability to scale and quickly provide super-channel transmission capacity for real-time high-performance computing," said Pieter Poll, senior vice president of national and international network planning at CenturyLink. "Providing SCinet with 1.5 terabit of transmission complements the work we are doing to transform our network and keep up with increasing bandwidth demands now and into the future."
