Fujitsu Enhances and Expands 1FINITY™ Family for Data Center Interconnect
Network Communications, Inc. is advancing its family of
high-performance data center interconnect (DCI) solutions with
enhancements to its 1FINITY T100, a hyper-dense transponder, packaged
together with the new 1FINITY T400, a 1 Tbps layer 1 aggregator. By
decoupling the transponder and the aggregator, both of which are based
on open software and open optics, Fujitsu (News - Alert) offers customers greater
architectural flexibility and industry-leading 10GbE to 100G aggregation
The open, disaggregated 1RU blades of the Fujitsu DCI solution are
economical, scalable and programmable, enabling network operators to
control space and power, while planning for future bandwidth growth. All
1FINITY blades have a Linux-based operating system and open
standards-based interfaces for provisioning, alarms, performance
metrics, and management.
Designed for 100G and 200G coherent optical transport between data
centers in point-to-point or ring topologies, the 1FINITY T100 Transport
blade can be deployed independently, in conjunction with other 1FINITY
blades such as the L100 Lambda series to provide ROADM (News - Alert) capability, or
over a third-party FOADM.
Numerous feature enhancements have been added to the T100 platform. Zero
touch provisioning automates configuration and provisioning,
significantly speeding installation and reducing operating expenditures.
Streaming telemetry technology provides an improved view of network
performance without taxing software management resources to such an
extent that other management functions are adversely impacted. Ethernet
Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP) snooping helps identify network
topology with automated network discovery, enabling better planning and
monitoring. And for enhanced optical security, the T100 has line-side
OTN layer 1 encryption using Advance Encryption Standard (AES-256) for
each 100Gb client.
The new 1FINITY T400 Transport blade provides a hyper-dense architecture
that is purpose-built for layer 1, 10GbE to 100G aggregation. The
platform's open optics are comprised of 10 x QSFP28100G-BaseR service
ports and 25 x QSFP+ 40 GbE client ports. A 4:1 optical fan-out cable is
used to deliver up to 100 x 10GbE client ports. Like the T100, the T400
has zero touch provisioning and AC or DC power supplies. The T400
reduces energy costs with a low power consumption of 0.45W per GbE.
When the T400 and T100 are deployed together, the unique design of the
"decoupled" aggregator and transponder provides ten times better 10GbE
to 100G aggregation density than any other solution on the market -
saving physical space, reducing stranded bandwidth, and cutting
operating expenses when scaling capacity.
"Our data center interconnect solutions are designed to meet the needs
of the country's largest service providers and data center operators,"
said Chris Podraza, head of the optical business unit, Fujitsu Network
Communications, Inc. "1FINITY solutions offer unmatched openness,
flexibility, density and security. Implementing 1FINITY products, like
the latest generation of the T100 and the T400, allow customers to grow
their business and to be well-positioned to meet future network needs."
The Fujitsu 1FINITY T100 and T400 are available today. Both solutions
will be on display in booth 3731 at OFC 2017, March 21 - 23, in the Los
Angeles Convention Center.
