The 100G network connects the NANOG 61 venue (the Hyatt Regency Bellevue) to NTT Com’s Point of Presence (PoP) at the Westin Building in Seattle, the region’s largest data center and network interconnection hub. The 100G connection is enabled by Cisco ASR 9900 and 9904 routers and powered by Cisco’s IOS® XR Network Operating System, as well as Cyan’s Z-Series packet-optical hardware in combination with Cyan’s Blue Planet platform. Cyan’s hardware and software solution and Cisco routers seamlessly integrate with NTT Com’s backbone and automated provisioning of 10G and 100G connections on NTT Com’s Software-defined Networking (SDN) platform.

“NTT Com is proud to be the connectivity provider of NANOG 61 and bring 100G IP connectivity to all NANOG 61 attendees,” says Michael Wheeler, Executive Vice President of NTT Communications’ Global IP Network at NTT America. “With fiber directly connected to our Seattle PoP, this ultra-high speed network is a milestone in NANOG’s 20-year history and will ensure that all attendees benefit from a fast, high-quality network experience.”

The 100G deployment for NANOG represents yet another step in a multi-year collaboration between NTT Com and Cyan in software-based network services automation, including the development of an open Application Programming Interface (API) designed to drive the rapid provisioning of Optical Wave Services (OWS). This joint development allows NTT Com’s existing Operations Support Systems (OSS) provisioning tools to interact with Cyan’s Blue Planet, ensuring the rapid and automated provisioning of 10 Gbps wavelengths across NTT Com’s Global IP Network.

“Cyan is happy to collaborate with other leading technology companies and provide NANOG attendees with best-in-class network connectivity,” says Michael Hatfield, President, Cyan. “This 100G demonstration and joint development with NTT Com highlights how Cyan’s technology can deliver unparalleled performance, scale and flexibility to customers seeking to transform and simplify their networks.”

"Working with NTT Com to deliver connectivity for NANOG 61 is a great proof point for how Cisco's Evolved Programmable Network (EPN) technology being open and multi-vendor ready for live SDN deployments and for how our 100G technology delivers industry-leading performance in existing multi-vendor networks,” says Surya Panditi, Senior Vice President and General Manager, Service Provider Networking Group, Cisco. “With increases in connected devices and demand for high-bandwidth content, service providers are having to rethink their technology infrastructures to remain competitive. NTT Com's native dual-stack IPv6 network with 100G connectivity, programmability & automation will serve as a strong foundation for delivering new and enhanced services to enable the Internet of Everything.”

"We are very excited to offer NANOG 61 attendees the largest amount of bandwidth capacity to ever be delivered to one of NANOG’s largest and well-attended events," says Betty Burke, NANOG Executive Director. "This milestone highlights the deployment of next-generation services and applications and raises the bar for future events.”

The 100G connectivity is facilitated by dark fiber provisioned by Comcast and Spectrum Networks.
