Global Access Limited and Infinera have successfully concluded a 100 Gigabit Ethernet (GigE) demonstration involving 100 GigE traffic sent over a live network between Tokyo and Osaka in Japan, a round trip of about 1,200 km. The demonstration indicated that GAL’s existing network based on the Infinera Digital Optical Networking system can carry 100 GigE traffic using Infinera’s Bandwidth Virtualization paradigm.

GAL owns and operates a network linking Japan’s major cities and cable landing points on the Japanese coast and provides telecom services to other service providers, enterprises, Internet service providers, cable companies, and academic institutions. Last year, GAL deployed an Infinera Digital Optical Network.
