Infinera 100G ethernet demo box

Went to the POP this morning to troubleshoot some trouble on the 10th lambda that cropped up yesterday evening. It turns out it was a bad jumper on the run from the Level3 bulk panel in our New York suite to our Infinera metro equipment. Once we got that cleaned up, the circuit normalized itself. Our thanks go out to the Level3 team that ran with this (Eli, Nate, Ryan and probably some others behind the scenes)

Here's a shot of the box in our rack with 10 "greened-up" interfaces to New York. The technician in the background is Steve Armstrong, from Infinera, verifying connectivity on his laptop.
