A new computing classroom and learning laboratory in The University of Texas at Austin’s Flawn Academic Center is changing the way that statistics and scientific computing are taught at the university.
The Statistics and Scientific Computation Lab is a collaboration between the Division of Statistics and Scientific Computation (SSC) in the College of Natural Sciences and the Texas Advanced Computing Center (TACC). Both divisions recognized the need for a space on the main campus where instructors could teach topics with lecture and lab components integrated into an innovative teaching environment.
New 100Gbit/s-Optimized Coherent Express Layer Provides Unprecedented Capacity, Reach and Flexibility with End-to-End Service Management
ADVA Optical Networking has added a coherent expresslayer to its flagship FSP 3000platform. The new technology has been optimized for 100Gbit/s transmissionspeed and enables service providers to use optical network resources flexibly and on-demand. Close interworking with the IP/MPLS layer allows a massive increase in network scalability and efficiency. The feature set represents a new generation of agile optical core networksand includes the following three criticalelements:
· Optical layer fully optimized for 100Gbit/s coherent transmission technology– Besides the obvious benefit of increasing the capacity per wavelength, the true power of the technology lies in the extra link budget SuperComputingOnline.com
