ANN ARBOR, Mich. -- Internet2 today announced the completion of an advanced upgrade that enables 100 Gigabit per second capabilities to the Manhattan Landing (MAN LAN) international exchange point in New York City. MAN LAN, a partnership between Internet2, Indiana University and NYSERnet, will be better positioned to serve both international and U.S. research networks and allow scientists to address energy, climate and other research challenges, particularly when paired with the 100G upgrade of the Internet2 optical infrastructure. MAN LAN’s new capabilities will be used for the first time to support several network demonstrations at SC11, the premier international conference of high-performance computing, networking, storage and analysis, in Seattle, Nov. 12-18.

“As international collaborations grow in number, complexity and importance, it is critical to have the capacity at MAN LAN and the other international exchange points to bring traffic effectively into the Internet2 network and to its connectors, said Rob Vietzke, vice president of network services, Internet2. “Upgrading MAN LAN to 100G and adding more port capacity assures our global capabilities are matched with our newly deployed domestic 100G network.”
