NTT Communications, Cisco and Cyan joined hands to provide 100G IP connectivity to NANOG 61 in Bellevue, WA, June 2-4.
The 100G network connects the NANOG 61 venue to NTT Com’s Point of Presence (PoP) at the Westin Building in Seattle, a data center and network interconnection hub.
Cisco said it is supplying its ASR 9900 and 9904 routers and IOS XR Network Operating System for the 100G connection. It is supported by Cyan’s Z-Series packet-optical hardware in combination with Cyan’s Blue Planet platform.
