AT&T has announced the successful completion of a live network environment field trial of 100-Gigabit backbone network technology.

During the trial, AT&T field-tested the new Cisco CRS-3 Carrier Routing System, conducting a standards-ready, single-flow, 100-Gigabit technology trial in a live network environment. (For more on CRS-3, click here).

For the test, AT&T used Opnext 100 Gigabit CFP client side modules and Ixia’s “K2” 100 Gigabit traffic generator and analyzer.

AT&T’s trial also demonstrated a single-carrier 100-Gigabit transmission with real-time coherent processing on a 900-kilometer deployed ultra long-haul transport link between Louisiana and Florida using Opnext optical equipment.

The 100-Gigabit technology is expected to be ready for commercial deployment over the next few years.
