ESnet extends 100GbE capability with Infinera’s DTN Platform

Infinera Corp of Sunnyvale, CA, USA, a vertically integrated manufacturer of digital optical network systems incorporating its own indium phosphide-based photonic integrated circuits (PICs), has announced the deployment of 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services on the Long Island MAN portion of the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Energy Sciences Network (ESnet) with the Infinera DTN Platform.

Leveraging ESnet’s existing Infinera Digital Optical Network, ESnet will offer 100GbE services from DOE’s Brookhaven National Laboratory to data centers in Manhattan and back onto ESnet’s nationwide network. Brookhaven National Laboratory is one of two facilities in the U.S. making data from the Large Hadron Collider’s ATLAS experiment available to the 44 U.S. institutions participating in the ATLAS project.

“We are pleased to provide a solution to ESnet that enables them to continue to provide reliable, high-bandwidth connectivity to thousands of researchers across the country,” Scott Chandler, vice president, North America Sales at Infinera.

ESnet first deployed the Infinera DTN platform for an advanced network testbed, and then leveraged the platform to provide production network services over the dark fiber ring in Long Island. In November, Infinera and ESnet successfully demonstrated transport Software Defined Networking on ESnet’s testbed.
