SC16 Uses ADVA Optical Networking 100G Technology to Support SCinet

Compact, Low-Power Transport Solution Contributes to Unique Research and Education Network

SALT LAKE CITY, Nov. 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today that the SC16 Conference is using its 100Gbit/s core technology to support SCinet, the conference's unique research and education network. The small footprint, low power consumption and plug-and-play simplicity of ADVA Optical Networking's equipment make it an ideal choice for networks like SCinet, which is built annually by volunteers to provide connectivity for the conference. The contribution of the 100Gbit/s transport solution to support the conference's exhibitions highlights the value of ultra-fast, high-capacity broadband for universities and research institutes. SC16 takes place from November 13 to 18 in Salt Lake City.

"SCinet's mission is to support the SC16 conference and showcase the best products, technology and research in high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis. Contributions from vendors like ADVA Optical Networking are critical to its success," said Akbar Kara, co-chair, SC16 WAN Transport Team. "In a multi-vendor architecture like SCinet, the crucial component is interoperability. All this week, interoperability will play a key role in supporting high-performance networking."

With the compact footprint and low power consumption of ADVA Optical Networking's equipment, SCinet can provide all exhibitors with point-to-point connectivity from the SC16 conference center to a local network point-of-presence. The high-performance, low-latency equipment enables fast, rbust data transmission, supporting multi-gigabit demonstrations and the sharing of data-intensive research. Planning for the unique transport network began more than a year in advance. In 2015, SCinet supplied more than 1.3Tbit/s of bandwidth. This year, it is set to carry even more data and, for the duration of the conference, it will be the world's fastest internet hub.

"Working on SCinet is always a great experience. Each year, major industry players join together alongside partners in academia and research to create a one-of-a-kind transport infrastructure. With our 100Gbit/s technology, this multi-vendor network will carry more data than ever before, helping to share cutting-edge innovation and support global collaboration," commented John Scherzinger, senior VP, sales, North America, ADVA Optical Networking. "Facilitating research and education networks is one of our driving passions. We believe that communication technology is central to the development of new ideas. It empowers people to share their vision and work together to create the future. That's why we're delighted to support SCinet and proud to be enabling SC16's world-class exhibitions, demonstrations, workshops and tutorials."

Day 2, Cisco Live! 2017

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.
