Extreme Networks, SARA & CERN Complete World's First Long-Haul 40GbE Link


Revealing the future of high performance networking, Extreme Networks today announced that the world’s first long-haul network demonstration of standards based, 40 GbE switching was successfully completed this week between SARA in Amsterdam and the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, as part of the annual Global LambdaGrid Workshop.

Highlighting the event, data traffic containing a computer-generated video depicting the “Big Bang” as part of the CosmoGrid astrophysics project was delivered to 15 high-definition LCD screens. This demonstration was made possible with Extreme Networks’ first-to-market, standards-based 40 GbE switch, which features pricing of $1,000 per port.
