Opnext and Ixia Demo 100 Gigabit Ethernet

Opnext and Ixia have successfully demonstrated 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) interoperability of both the CFP MSA standard and the IEEE 802.3ba draft standard across multiple products and platforms. Ixia and Opnext previously verified their 100 GbE CFP MSA products, successfully transmitting and receiving 100 GbE packets at a demonstration hosted by Juniper Networks.

The traffic was created and measured using the Ixia K2 traffic generator and analyzer and Opnext's 100GBASE-LR4 CFP Multi-Source Agreement (CFP MSA)-compliant optical module.

"In alignment with our vision for The New Network, Juniper is leading the development and testing of 100 GbE hardware for high performance networks, supported by an open, flexible and secure infrastructure," said Unmesh Agarwala, vice president of engineering, Core Business Unit, Juniper Networks.
