CENIC has built a 400 gigabit-per-second single-carrier optical circuit between Los Angeles and Riverside in California, one of the first-ever 400G superchannels to be deployed by a US regional research and education network. Construction included upgrading nodes in Los Angeles, Tustin, Oceanside, San Diego, Escondido, Sun City, and Riverside to 400G capabilities.

To develop the real-world 400G production connection, CENIC upgraded network infrastructure to flex spectrum Reconfigurable Optical Add-Drop Multiplexers and the NCS 1004 transponder platform. CENIC used Cisco-loaned equipment for the validation in production and is now implementing the permanent infrastructure. The new 400G wavelengths support network operational benefits to deliver 100G services.

This next-generation superchannel ensures CENIC can easily meet today’s networking demands while remaining future-proof and flexible to meet the needs of tomorrow. CENIC’s California Research and Education Network serves the vast majority of K-20 students, educators, researchers, and individuals at other vital public-serving institutions. CalREN operates over 8,000 miles of fiber optic cable and serves more than 20 million users.
