CAMPBELL, Calif. -– StrataLight Communications announced that its 40-Gigabit optical transport equipment was used during Cisco System’s CSR-1 product unveiling event on May 25th at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. A 40-Gigabit per second Internet Protocol (IP) link interconnected two Cisco CRS-1 core routers over MCI fiber, demonstrating the fastest ever inter-city IP transmission. StrataLight’s equipment provided the 40-Gbps optical link between two of the new Cisco routers.

In this ‘fastest IP network’ demonstration, two of Cisco’s new CRS-1 core routers were located within MCI Points of Presence in San Francisco and San Jose, California. The routers, both equipped with short-reach 40-Gbps OC-768c optical client interfaces, were interconnected over MCI fiber facilities using StrataLight OTS-4000 Optical Terminal Subsystems in conjunction with Cisco ONS 15454 SONET MultiService Transport Platforms, which provided optical amplification.

StrataLight’s OTS-4000 provided the full-duplex 40-Gbps OC-768c optical connection, utilizing a single wavelength in each direction.

“This demonstration proved the ease of scalability of existing core optical networks with minimal capital outlay.” said Terry Smith, CEO of StrataLight. “The OTS-4000 provides a 40-Gbps upgrade for 10-Gbps core networks, making it easier for carriers to take full advantage of Cisco’s CRS-1 with its OC-768c interfaces, in preparation for converged applications such as video and voice over IP.”

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.
