Nortel network adopted by CANARIE

A new optical network from Nortel has been deployed by CANARIE Inc., Canada’s advanced research and education network, to provide scientists and researchers with enough bandwidth to deliver the network Nortel-152X39.JPGcapacity required for major science and research projects, as well as education and training. Nortel’s Metro Ethernet has more than quadrupled CANARIE’s previous network capacity, allowing users to share more information and provide additional bandwidth for multimedia, detailed simulation and modeling, as well other computer-intensive applications. “Today's researchers are heavily dependent on collaboration and access to high-bandwidth data which require very high speed, high capacity and reliable networks,” says Andrew Bjerring, president and CEO of CANARIE. “Nortel has been instrumental in providing the technology and the expertise that enable CANARIE's ability to provide one of the world's highest performance, largest capacity, and most sophisticated networks for research and education.”

Supported by its members, project partners and the federal government, the not-for profit CANARIE Inc. researches and implements advanced networks and applications designed to stimulate economic growth and increase Canada’s international competitiveness. CANARIE furthers network development and use by facilitating the widespread adoption of faster, more efficient networks and by enabling the next generation of advanced products, applications and services to run on them.

“CANARIE has taken a highly aggressive approach to ensuring that Canada remains a center of excellence for industries that require an ultra high-performance, research and education network,” says Philippe Morin, president, Metro Ethernet Networks, Nortel. “The CANARIE network is a prime example of the tremendous potential the future holds for research and education initiatives. Continued expansion of networks carrying everything from multimedia and video conferencing to data will be instrumental in answering the world's most challenging scientific research questions.”
