WIDE Project, KDDI develop router with open-source software, 3.2T-packet transmission

Wednesday 12 June 2019 | 11:30 CET | News
The WIDE Project has adopted a router developed by Japanese operator KDDI. The router runs open-source software, and will be used with the networks operated and managed by the WIDE Project. The router will use open-source software with up to 3.2T-packet transmission.

For this project, KDDI plans to start tests this month to verify the practical utility and interoperability of these routers when put to use in the actual service environment. The WIDE Project will be in charge of network administration and definition of requirements for router implementation.

The networks operated and managed by the WIDE Project have a diverse multi-vendor structure. In addition to academic research applications, they also handle general internet traffic flow.

The WIDE Project launched a router development working group in January this year. KDDI joined this group to support the development of IP networks.
