Session Abstract

New networking high water marks were achieved at important conferences recently and demonstrations attempted to address networking challenges in current High Performance Computing. These networks required spectral efficiency, photonic agility, high capacity and guaranteed availability over complex infrastructures. This presents formidable challenges and increasing complexity to network operators.

One approach that was demonstrated is to increase the transport photonic layer and its ability to transport more information. In the choice of the technology, 100G is commonly used as the current technology, but with emerging new application coming forward, new techniques are required to increase the fiber capacity to transport more information.

In this presentation, we will discuss the integration of the high density transport techniques that was used to carry 400 Gb/s live traffic during SC13. We will describe the technology necessary and the photonic backbone photonic ability to insert and carry super-channels and their spectral efficiencies.

Research and unique demonstrations of traffic optimization and flexibility scenarios using multiple 100GE traffic sources will be describe by Marc Lyonnais, member of the SCinet WAN transport team of SC13 and Network researcher of Ciena Research Labs.
