Optical networking specialist Optelian has joined Georgia Technology Center (GTC), a live laboratory for network equipment vendors to demonstrate their networking hardware and software, located in Colo Atl’s Atlanta facility.
“The addition of Optelian to the GTC community is another example of the GTC’s dedication to creating the best possible environment for our members to network, collaborate and showcase their gear” comments Tim Kiser, Owner and Founder of GTC parent company, Colo Atl. “A leader in optical networking technologies, Optelian is an ideal member and an extremely valuable asset to the GTC.”
The GTC is also home to the Southeast Network Access Point (SNAP), a new software defined network (SDN) Internet exchange. Through the GTC, the SNAP enables networking equipment vendors to interoperate and test SDN traffic across multiple vendors’ equipment.
“The GTC is a top-notch advanced technology research and deployment facility, and its community is an invaluable resource,” said Mike Perry, president of Optelian. “Optelian’s MPX-9110 Flexible 100G platform is a perfect fit for the GTC’s objectives. We’re looking forward to showcasing our 100G technology and other solutions with the GTC, and working closely on interoperability with other members.”
