Session Abstract

Research and Education (R&E) networks provide the infrastructure that allows researchers to experiment with new state-of-the-art technologies such as High Performance Computing (HPC), remote visualization, and support of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). Each of these technologies depends on very high capacity optical transmission facilities, and the potential of 40 Gbps and eventually 100 Gbps transmission speeds offer the capacity to enable new types of research experiments. Optical transmission systems will be enhanced to provide these services to R&E networks, often using existing provider networks and fibers. This presentation discusses the optical transmission technologies needed to enhance current optical systems to provide these data rates, and the impact that higher transmission rates will have on existing fiber systems and networks.
