National LambdaRail Delivers 100G to SC11 Show in Seattle

National LambdaRail (NLR) is delivering 100G connectivity for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) presence at SC11, the global supercomputing conference being held here this week at the Washington State Convention Center. Cisco's ASR 9000 Series router system and ONS 15454 optical transport platform power the 100G connection. Cisco supplied the networking equipment in support of NOAA's activities at SC11.

"Together with Cisco, NLR is determined to provide its clients, like NOAA and the national research community, with the data transmission capabilities they need to stay ahead of the curve in a competitive global science marketplace," said Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong, chairman and CEO of National LambdaRail. "This demonstration underscores our firm commitment to dedicated, high performance communications support for science."

"Data intensive science is impacting many fields of study such as climate change, nuclear physics, and genomic medicine," said Surya Panditi, senior vice president and general manager, Core Technology Group. "Cisco is committed to delivering the end-to-end architecture and networking intelligence that will enable high performance computing applications and advance scientific discovery and scholarship."
