JANET(UK), Verizon collaborate on 100-Gbps networking

Verizon (NYSE, NASDAQ:VZ) has supplied technical expertise to JANET(UK), the provider of the U.K.'s JANET research and education network, with the goal of enabling JANET’s users to leverage 100-Gbps transmission capabilities. JANET(UK) announced 100-Gbps capabilities for the JANET optical network on May 4.

"Verizon is an innovative communications company with a long history of devising advanced solutions for our customers around the world," said Michael Bauer, director of European network planning for Verizon. "We have a great opportunity to share our engineering and network expertise with JANET(UK), and this teamwork gives the U.K. academic community an opportunity to use the latest technology available in the marketplace."

Verizon and JANET(UK) had conducted trials of 100-Gbps transmission as far back as 2009 (see “Verizon Business completes 100G trial with U.K. research and education network”).

In addition to Verizon, JANET’s technology partners for the 100-Gbps capabilities include Alcatel-Lucent, Ciena, and Juniper Networks.

Jeremy Sharp, head of JANET(UK)'s Strategic Technologies division, said: "We have a strong reputation for serving education and research, and we are widely recognized as having a critical role to play in the U.K.'s future economic prosperity. JANET(UK) is committed to supporting the future of U.K. research and education. At a time when research and education is being asked to do more with less, this is a great example of how technology can not only be innovative, but power innovation."
