CenturyLink and Infinera Bring Terabit Capacity to ISCinet

  • CenturyLink
  • Infinera

SUNNYVALE, CA — CenturyLink and Infinera supplied equipment, software and services to support a supercomputing conference at this week’s SC19, an international conference for high performance computing, networking, storage and analysis.

CenturyLink and Infinera, along with other contributors from the networking industry, academia and government, are delivering multi-terabit capacity to SCinet, the dedicated high-capacity network that supports revolutionary applications and some of the world’s most advanced supercomputing experiments at the SC19 conference. Multi-terabit capacity enables the network to more rapidly transmit large amounts of data to meet the needs of this supercomputing community.

Rapid Provisioning of 100-Gigabit Services

CenturyLink will deliver this capacity using the Infinera Groove G30 Compact Modular Platform running 2 x 600 gigabits per second metro wavelengths. The deployment will connect the Colorado Convention Center in Denver with wide-area networks in major U.S. cities, demonstrating CenturyLink’s rapid provisioning of 100-gigabit services.

“A scalable, agile, and low-latency infrastructure plays a critical role in addressing the demanding and ever-increasing connectivity requirements of high-performance computing and the global research and education community,” said Andrew Dugan, chief technology officer at CenturyLink. “Delivering terabit-scale capacity for SCinet underscores our commitment to serving the needs of these customers in their pursuit of academic excellence.”

Delivering Terabit Capacity for Metro, Regional and Long-Haul Connectivity Applications

This year’s SCinet leverages the CenturyLink core optical transport network and the Infinera Groove G30, a stackable compact modular platform, delivering terabit capacity for a broad range of metro, regional and long-haul connectivity applications. CenturyLink operates a robust global 450,000-route-mile fiber network and utilizes Infinera’s automated, high-capacity transport solutions in its backbone network.
