CANARIE Expands 100G Research & Education Network with Ciena
Ciena® Corporation (NASDAQ: CIEN), the network specialist, today announced that CANARIE, Canada’s Advanced Research and Innovation Network, has deployed Ciena’s 6500 Packet-Optical Platform equipped with third generation WaveLogic Coherent Optical Processors to support the 100G (100 Gigabits per second) upgrade and network expansion of a route connecting Montreal and New York. The new ultra-high-speed network link will sustain the “big data” streams used in today’s advanced academic and scientific research. For example, the 100G link can allow a full two hour HD movie to download in 4/10ths of a second.

CANARIE Call for Proposals targets public and private sector partners to address gap in research software.
CANARIE, a vital component of Canada’s digital infrastructure supporting research, education and innovation, today announced a call for proposals to create software platforms and services to support cutting-edge Canadian research.
These software tools will substantially increase the speed with which researchers can move from data to discovery and – ultimately – to breakthrough and innovation. The software developed through this Research Middleware program will contribute to an ever-growing pool of resources that can be reused to accelerate development of new research software over the long term. Middleware is software that manages the interaction between an application program and digital infrastructure.
The software developed through this program helps researchers use all the information that travels over the ultra-high-speed CANARIE network. To grasp the value of this program, imagine the Internet without a browser or an e-mail program. Data and information could still be transmitted, but there would be no interface to make it usable. That is the function that these Research Middleware developments serve on the CANARIE network: they make it much easier for researchers to access, use, view, share, and work with the data that is growing by leaps and bounds every year.
