2016 is looking like the year metro networks start transitioning to 100G.  So, what better way to start the year than talking 100G at NANOG, where leaders in networking converge?
When the NANOG 66 conference kicks off next week in San Diego, LightRiver and Infinera will be right in the middle of the action, showing leadership in 100G wavelength division multiplexing (WDM).  Infinera, of course, brings its low power and small form factor technology, including the Cloud Xpress with 100 GbE interfaces. LightRiver will showcase our 100G expertise and promote our unique Factory Built Network™ practice at the 4:00 p.m. conference break on Tuesday, February 9th. We’ll also be at the Infinera table during the Infinera sponsored Beer & Gear event, Tuesday night February 9th, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.
LightRiver_Logo_HiRes_0909It’s no accident that both of our companies are in sync about the future of 100G in the metro. LightRiver and Infinera have a long-standing partnership, with complementary strengths and aligned vision of the future of optical transport networks. In fact, just last fall we celebrated over 10 years of a strong working relationship, with Infinera bestowing its “Gold Level Partner” certification on LightRiver.

Looking ahead, we see a huge opportunity for our companies working together to address the ever-growing demand for scalable optical networks generally, and in particular, the demand for 100G in metro networks.

Contact us to set up a meeting with LightRiver and Infinera to discuss your metro 100G applications. See you in San Diego!
