Nokia Siemens Networks and Juniper Networks Inc. have successfully conducted 100 Gbps interoperability testing between Optical Transport Network (OTN) equipment and the routers. The trial was conducted at Nokia Siemens Networks’ ResIP Center in Munich, Germany.

Nokia Siemens demonstrated the tested 100G line cards at the OFC/NFOEC conference in Los Angeles, Calif. this week.

The trial was conducted to test seamless interworking on Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 DWDM platform and Juniper’s T1600 core router, using the native 100 Gbps Ethernet interface. Commercial roll-out for 100G on Nokia Siemens Networks’ hiT 7300 is scheduled for mid 2011.

“We have many 100G customers, who are looking for expanded service and proven long haul capabilities that are critical to the further adoption of 100G in networks.” said Daniel Hua, senior vice president of the Core Business Unit at Juniper.

Marc Rouanne, head of Network Systems (NWS) and member of Executive Board of Nokia Siemens Networks, added that interoperability of router and DWDM network elements is a prerequisite for carriers to build and upgrade their networks in a cost efficient manner.
