TransLight/Pacific Wave and TransLight/Starlight are now directly connected through a 10Gigabit Ethernet lightpath connection. The connection, donated by Cisco Systems in support of the TransLight project, is deployed by National LambdaRail. TransLight/StarLight and TransLight/Pacific Wave are projects funded by the National Science Foundation under the International Research Network Connections (IRNC) Program of the Office of CyberInfrastructure.Read More
Internet2 today announced that an international team set a new Internet2 Land Speed Records (I2-LSR) in the IPv4 and IPv6 single and multi-stream categories. As an open and ongoing competition for the highest-bandwidth, end-to-end networks, Internet2 LSR awards represent the fastest rate at which data is transferred multiplied by the distance traveled.Read More
Internet2 today announced that an international team set a new Internet2 Land Speed Records (I2-LSR) in both the IPv6 and IPv4 single and multi-stream categories. This record marks the
fourth time a University of Tokyo-lead team has achieved an Internet2 Land Speed record. As an open and ongoing competition for the highest-bandwidth, end-to-end networks, Internet2 LSR awards represent the fastest rate at which data is transferred multiplied by the distance traveled.
WIDE Project, on September 21 succeeded in an experiment to perform a remote jazz jam session between Japan and Europe linking an event site at EXPO 2005 Aichi and SARA in Amsterdam, the Netherlands using uncompressed HDTV video imagery. The jazz session incorporated one of the research themes of the next generation Internet, Light Path, and was conducted with the cooperation of numerous global research and development networks including IEEAF, PNW Gigapop, CA*net4, MANLAN and SURFnet. Provisioned Light Paths were established between Japan and Europe and were used to transmit the uncompressed HDTV video streams. These extremely high-quality video images were used to present the live performance of jazz musicians at the EXPO Dome and the Netherlands.Read More

Engineers in Japan, Canada, United States, The Netherlands, and CERN Switzerland completed the worlds longest native 10Gigabit Ethernet circuit for the transmission of data from the Japanese Data Reservoir project to the CERN research center in Geneva, Switzerland. The length of this light path is approximately 18,500 km and spans 17 time zones.Read More
