Wide Area Networking/Optical Upgrades

Our current WAN status consists of one 10 GE and two 1GE connections to Los Angeles (LA-818). Why upgrade?

  • We are unable to provision further waves at this time
  • We have requests for services that we cannot currently meet
  • We are unable to obtain spare parts (equipment end-of-life)

The planned optical network upgrades have an estimated completion date of Summer-Fall 2010 at a cost of approximately $700,000 and will include:

  • New optical multiplexor
  • Fifteen 10GEwaves to Los Angeles (LA-818)
  • Ten 10GEwaves to JPL
  • Los Angeles fiber contract renewal
