Worlds First Successful Demonstration of Multi-Vendor Equipment Interoperability in Transmitting 100 Gigabit Ethernet Signals over an Optical Network


Fujitsu NEC and Anritsu today jointly announced that, in field tests, for the first time in the world they successfully demonstrated interoperability testing for optical network interface technology allowing telecommunications carriers to connect to each other at 100 Gigabit-class speeds, some 2.5- to 10-times faster than current speeds. Accordingly, this is the first time in the world that the transmission of 100 Gbps Ethernet signals over multiple optical networks using equipment from multiple vendors has been successfully demonstrated.


Details of the test are being presented at the 25th Symposium on Optical Communication Systems running December 15–16, 2011, in Mishima, Shizuoka Prefecture in Japan.
