RICHARDSON, Texas -- Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. is advancing its family of high-performance data center interconnect (DCI) solutions with enhancements to its 1FINITY T100, a hyper-dense transponder, packaged together with the new 1FINITY T400, a 1 Tbps layer 1 aggregator. By decoupling the transponder and the aggregator, both of which are based on open software and open optics, Fujitsu offers customers greater architectural flexibility and industry-leading 10GbE to 100G aggregation density.

The open, disaggregated 1RU blades of the Fujitsu DCI solution are economical, scalable and programmable, enabling network operators to control space and power, while planning for future bandwidth growth. All 1FINITY blades have a Linux-based operating system and open standards-based interfaces for provisioning, alarms, performance metrics, and management.

Designed for 100G and 200G coherent optical transport between data centers in point-to-point or ring topologies, the 1FINITY T100 Transport blade can be deployed independently, in conjunction with other 1FINITY blades such as the L100 Lambda series to provide ROADM capability, or over a third-party FOADM.

Numerous feature enhancements have been added to the T100 platform. Zero touch provisioning automates configuration and provisioning, significantly speeding installation and reducing operating expenditures. Streaming telemetry technology provides an improved view of network performance without taxing software management resources to such an extent that other management functions are adversely impacted. Ethernet Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) snooping helps identify network topology with automated network discovery, enabling better planning and monitoring. And for enhanced optical security, the T100 has line-side OTN layer 1 encryption using Advance Encryption Standard (AES-256) for each 100Gb client.

The new 1FINITY T400 Transport blade provides a hyper-dense architecture that is purpose-built for layer 1, 10GbE to 100G aggregation. The platform’s open optics are comprised of 10 x QSFP28 100G-BaseR service ports and 25 x QSFP+ 40 GbE client ports. A 4:1 optical fan-out cable is used to deliver up to 100 x 10GbE client ports. Like the T100, the T400 has zero touch provisioning and AC or DC power supplies. The T400 reduces energy costs with a low power consumption of 0.45W per GbE.

When the T400 and T100 are deployed together, the unique design of the “decoupled” aggregator and transponder provides ten times better 10GbE to 100G aggregation density than any other solution on the market - saving physical space, reducing stranded bandwidth, and cutting operating expenses when scaling capacity.

“Our data center interconnect solutions are designed to meet the needs of the country’s largest service providers and data center operators,” said Chris Podraza, head of the optical business unit, Fujitsu Network Communications, Inc. “1FINITY solutions offer unmatched openness, flexibility, density and security. Implementing 1FINITY products, like the latest generation of the T100 and the T400, allow customers to grow their business and to be well-positioned to meet future network needs.”

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
