Leading Japanese ISPs, including Internet Multifeed Co. (MF), Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (IIJ) and NTT Communications, completed a 100 Gigabit Ethernet Joint Interoperability test. The event was described as a success and is expected to lead to the commercial rollout of 100GigE exchange points in Japan.

The companies noted that they are already bundling multiple 10GigE interfaces to keep up with peering demands.

The test was conducted using routers, switches and packet generators provided by Brocade Communications, Cisco, Juniper Networks and Toyo Corporation. Spirent Communications supplied the packet generator and test gear.

MF, IIJ and NTT Com interconnected routers and switches capable of 100 Gigabit provided by Brocade, Cisco and Juniper and tested the interoperability of physical and network layer, interoperability with optical switch, routing exchange and redundant IX topology while exchanging 100 Gigabit traffic.http://www.ntt.co.jp
