The 100G submarine network, based on Ciena’s 6500 Packet Optical Platform and WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors, links Iceland to Denmark and connects TNC2012 to the global research community through NORDUnet and SURFnet. The submarine network spans 2200 km of undersea fibre provided by FARice, while the end-to-end link from Reykjavik to Amsterdam is about 4,000 km long. The traffic from the submarine link is transmitted over Mila’s Icelandic network to the conference, which takes place in the capital. This is the first time such bandwidth has connected Iceland over a single light path. Although this is a temporary connection for the TNC2012 conference it provides an important proof point for Icelandic businesses and potential Data Centre installations.

The highly reliable optical network from Amsterdam to TNC2012 enables a demonstration of 4k uncompressed video streaming that originates at the University of Amsterdam. The extreme high-definition, multimedia transmission enables the broadcast industry to produce content such as films and TV series and is being tested for use in a research environment. The demonstration features Ciena’s video MOTR multimedia networking card on the 5200 Advanced Services Platform.
