Aug 29 14
Brocade Communications Systems Inc. announced SingAREN Selects SDN-ready Brocade Routing Core For New - Super-High-Speed Research Network Platform. Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network (SingAREN) has taken the wraps off the SingAREN-Lightwave Internet Exchange (SLIX), a 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) community network with a Brocade(r) MLXe-4 router at its core. SLIX delivers one hundred times more capacity than SingAREN's previous generation of network infrastructure, providing stronger support for complex, data- and bandwidth-intensive research in areas such as genome and meteorological studies. In addition, the MLXe-4 core router provides a clear path for the use of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in SLIX's network. The new network includes a dedicated dual fiber-optic ring -- capable of supporting multiple 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) links - that provides a resilient backbone connecting Singapore's key research and education sites. This opens up new possibilities as a test-bed for the Singapore research and education community, extending database mirroring services, bilateral disaster recovery, high-performance computing federation and shared services, high volume peering with content data networks, and other value-adding services.
