In general, it can be summarized that the 100G trial infrastructure showed a very stable behaviour during the whole duration of the test. Even high interface load did not show an increased error rate or any instability of the CRS-3 router and the DWDM system. In a long term test over 18 hours the transferred data accumulated to 770 Terabyte. A sustained utilization of 95% of the theoretical 100 Gbps could be observed during several time ranges of the test period. The 100G technique is mature enough to be commissioned and deployed at the production infrastructure of NRENs as the next generation infrastructure.
