Networking at the speed of light
Researchers demonstrated an optical network provisioning protocol between systems at the Defense Department and the Naval Research Laboratory. It was the first real-world use of the Just-in-Time protocol across the optical Advanced Technology Demonstration Network.
JIT allows applications to request, use and release high-speed optical bandwidth almost instantly over standard optical networking switches. The Naval Research Laboratory wants to quickly and easily supply gigabits of bandwidth for high-performance computing applications.
