PR - Aug 29, 2014 - Singaren Selects SDN-Ready Brocade Routing Core

Singapore Advanced Research and Education Network (SingAREN) has taken the wraps off the SingAREN-Lightwave Internet Exchange (SLIX), a 100 Gigabit per second (Gbps) community network with a Brocade® MLXe-4 router at its core. The MLXe-4 core router provides a clear path for the use of Software-Defined Networking (SDN) in SLIX’s network.

SLIX delivers one hundred times more capacity than SingAREN’s previous generation of network infrastructure, providing stronger support for complex, data- and bandwidth-intensive research in areas such as genome and meteorological studies. In addition to supporting connectivity within the local research community, the SingAREN SLIX core router is a key node for international research and education networks – including APAN, GLORIAD, Internet2, and TEIN – and peers directly with Australia’s AARNet and Japan’s NII and NICT networks.
