Munich, Germany – March 4, 2011
Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper Networks conduct 100G interoperability trial
Move towards commercial reality of 100G data transport over long distances
Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper have successfully conducted 100 Gbps interoperability testing between Optical Transport Network (OTN) equipment and the routers. The trial was conducted at Nokia Siemens Networks’ ResIP Center in Munich, Germany. Nokia Siemens Networks will demonstrate the tested 100G line cards at the OFC/NFOEC conference in Los Angeles, California during March 8-10, 2011.
The trial was conducted to test seamless interworking on Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 DWDM platform and Juniper’s T1600 core router, using the native 100 Gbps Ethernet interface. Commercial roll-out for 100G on Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 is scheduled for mid 2011.
“Nokia Siemens Networks is a leader in IP integration with extensive capabilities in optical transport and this achievement is a testimony of our successful partnership with it,” said Daniel Hua, senior vice president of the Core Business Unit at Juniper Networks. “We have many 100G customers, who are looking for expanded service and proven long haul capabilities that are critical to the further adoption of 100G in networks.”
“Interoperability of router and DWDM network elements is a prerequisite for carriers to build and upgrade their networks in a cost efficient manner,” added Marc Rouanne, head of Network Systems (NWS) and member of Executive Board of Nokia Siemens Networks. “The demonstration confirms that worldwide carriers and operators can transport high volumes of data over long distances along with ensuring excellent network performance.”

Notes to editors:
Increasing line rates from 10GE to 100GE per router port and per DWDM channel allow operators to scale their network in order to keep up with the increasing bandwidth demand from IP/Ethernet services. Core IP/MPLS router networks interconnect across long haul DWDM transmission networks.
Nokia Siemens Networks’ DWDM (Dense Wave Division Multiplexing) solution, comprising of the hiT 7300 and TransNet DWDM planning and automation tool, provide a cost optimized, flexible and automated platform. It also offers a viable answer to the excessive traffic demand, reconfiguration and cost pressure issues. The design principle of the DWDM platform (hiT 7300) is based on high modularity as well as high re-use, thereby, creating a single platform from metro to core. It also provides network operators with a new level of simplicity for commissioning and maintaining DWDM systems, driving out complexity while providing complete administrator control. Nokia Siemens Networks’ TransNet, end-to-end planning tool provides an optimal network design, guaranteed performance and automated configuration, resulting in significant OPEX savings. Moreover, it reduces outage time and procedural errors along with an exceptionally low TCO.
With over 100 DWDM customers around the world, Nokia Siemens Networks provides a migration path to Terabit Optical Transport. It also provides scaling capacity for channels of 10/40/100 Gbit/s, with its platform being open to 400Gbit/s and even more. Nokia Siemens Networks has 12 hiT 7500 customers and 90 hiT 7300 customers.
