Jul 2007
The University of Illinois has launched a 3000RE fiber service platform (FSP) from Adva Optical Networking to expand its intercampus data network and those of its main campuses in Chicago, Springfield and Urbana-Champaign. The university migrated from a dedicated point-to-point OC-3 circuit that connected the Urbana and Chicago campuses with a capacity of 155 Mb/s to a dedicated dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) backbone able to transport up to 3.2 Tb/s, achieved with 10 Gb/s per channel -- with the potential for 40 Gb/s per channel in the future, Adva said. The network extends a total distance of almost 1000 km. The university said the increased bandwidth will enable closer integration of campuses; improved networking for education and course management using higher-bandwidth applications; enhanced support of research projects that rely on access to large amounts of data or computational processing facilities; and reliable high-speed connectivity to the national and internal research and education community via academic networks such as Internet2 and National LambdaRail.



GLOSSARY
photonics
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
