100G Coming to the Forefront


The European Conference on Optical Communications (ECOC) came to a close a few days ago. In its wake it leaves a bounty of information for what's to come in the world of communications. As the biggest European event on optical communications it is a hub for those in the fiberoptics technology industry.
Some of the biggest highlights this year came in the form of 100G modules and companies like JDSU and Oclaro rushing to get these news modules out on the market. This comes as good news for companies looking to meet the demands of a world demanding faster and more efficient communication.
Sunset Digital is one such company that hopes to make use of 100G technology. The company seeks to create a backbone out in Tennessee, one that will serve to bring broadband services to those in more rural and impoverished areas. With the aid of a 24 million dollar award from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, Sunset Digital is able to move forward with these plans.
To meet these ends, Sunset has brought in the services of Ciena Corp. and had them deal with the logistics of the operation. It hopes that they will be able to service delivery, service visualization, and monitor the network as a whole during the transition.
