AT&T said it successfully completed the first of a multi-phase trial of 400 gigabit Ethernet data speeds, potentially quadrupling network speeds for businesses. In the field trial, the carrier established a 400GbE connection between New York and Washington, DC. The 400GbE end-to-end service was transported across the network, which was carrying live traffic. A SDN controller created a service along the direct path between the two cities, and through software control rerouted the service to a second path to simulate a response to a network failure.
