Mumbai, Aug 6 (UNI) Agilent Technologies, the world's premier Test and Measurement Company and a technology leader in communications, electronics, life sciences and chemical analysis, has announced a collaboration with IIT Bombay to build technologies for 100 Gigabit Ethernet as well as next generation Carrier Ethernet networks in the metropolitan space.
Agilent Technologies funds the Gigabit Networks Laboratory of Computer Science and Engineering Department, IITB.
Professor Ashwin Gumsate, who is the James R Isaac Chair in Computer Science and Engineering Department of IIT Bombay, will lead this research collaboration that would build a new system that would pave a roadmap for 100 Gigabit Ethernet. This would also use novel optical technologies.
The new technologies, which would be developed by this association would be employed by the next generation data centers as well as for mobile backhaul traffic. The partnership between IIT Bombay and Agilent Technologies R &D center at Bangalore would help create a new metropolitan test-bed, which would be the key for testing future access and metro technologies.
The collaboration - the first of its kind in this high-speed application space with emphasis on the future of Ethernet, would be a key shift for private-public partnerships in the Indian scenario the release added.
