StrataLight didn't get mentioned in the press release, but everyone involved freely admits it was in the test.
(This doesn't mean StrataLight gets shut out; the company provides IP-over-DWDM interfaces to Cisco.)
It's being done at 10- and 40-Gbit/s. Why not 100-Gbit/s? Cisco isn't saying definitively that it's going to happen, but Kelly Ahuja, Cisco's VP in charge of core routers, acknowledges that it's likely.
In a sense, it's moot. This was just a test, so the technology used isn't necessarily what will go commercial in 2010 or beyond. Cisco could have used a room-sized supercomputer if it wanted to.
