NIAID Researchers Gain Secure Access to Remote Data Through High-Bandwidth, Ultra-Low Latency Connectivity

Richardson, TX, April 30, 2012 - Fujitsu, a leading provider of business, information technology, and communications solutions, announced today that it was chosen by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), part of the National Institutes of Health, to implement a multi-node regional fiber optic network allowing researchers to access and share critical data residing in remote datacenters. NIAID's selection of the Fujitsu FLASHWAVE 7420 Metro/Enterprise WDM Platform, NETSMART 1500 Management System and professional services, will ensure the agency benefits from tunable bandwidths reaching 40Gb per second performance; sub-microsecond latency; multi-protocol, multi-application support; remote monitoring and management; and valuable training.

NIAID conducts and supports research to study the causes of infectious and immune-mediated diseases, and to develop better means of preventing, diagnosing and treating these illnesses.

"Many organizations today are not looking for a vendor they're looking for a partner," said Paul Fagan, senior vice president of sales at Fujitsu Network Communications. "Our work with NIAID is a prime example. We are working side-by-side to architect the network, implement the technology - both hardware and software - and train staff. Our commitment is to ensure NIAID's fiber optic infrastructure fully supports the critical work being done there."

Fujitsu's FLASHWAVE 7420 is a scalable Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM)-based transport solution engineered for high-performance, low-latency networks. The platform, which includes Reconfigurable Optical Add/Drop Multiplexer (ROADM) technology, supports Ethernet, SONET/SDH, G.709 OTN, ATM, video and SAN protocols in fixed and reconfigurable point-to-point, linear add/drop and ring topologies.

The Fujitsu NETSMART 1500 carrier-class management system allows NIAID to remotely monitor, manage, provision and maintain the FLASHWAVE 7420. The solution facilitates network reliability and visibility through performance data tracking and graphing, bandwidth capacity reports and instantaneous alarm reports, as well as real-time fault isolation and resolution.

In addition to planning and deploying hardware and software, Fujitsu professional services will provide NIAID staff with training on application and equipment engineering, turn-up, operations and maintenance.
