OFC/NFOEC 2011 Interoperability Demonstration

By Ethernet Alliance

The Ethernet Alliance has twelve members participating in the OFC/NFOEC 2011 demonstration. The participating companies include: ADVA Optical Networking, AppliedMicro, Amphenol, Cisco, CommScope, Ixia, Mellanox, NetApp, Opnext, Siemon, Spirent and Tyco Electronics. One part of the live demonstration showcases 10 Gigabit Ethernet links being sourced from Ixia and Spirent testers, passing through a Mellanox top-of-rack switch that is handling RDMA over Converged Ethernet (RoCE) traffic, aggregating into two 100 Gigabit Ethernet links in the Cisco routers, and terminating on the testers. The other part of the live demonstration showcases two back-to-back servers streaming 40 Gigabit Ethernet between them using Mellanox adapters.
