Chinese data center service provider deploys Coriant Groove G30 Solution

Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking and DCI solutions, has announced that Beijing Internet Harbor Technology Co., Ltd. (“BIH”), a provider of Internet Data Center (IDC) and value-added cloud computing services in China, has deployed the Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform (NDP) to scale metro network capacity and enhance high-speed interconnect services for its end-user customers, including large and small enterprises, Internet and Web 2.0 providers, and government agencies, the company said.

The Coriant Groove G30 solution for Internet Harbor includes coherent 200G line side transmission, and spans major metropolitan cities across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen.

Configured as a muxponder, the compact 1RU Groove G30 solution enables Internet Harbor to cost-efficiently support delivery of 10G, 40G, and 100G interconnect services while maximizing utilization of fiber resources with coherent 200G DWDM transport.

The Groove G30 integrates seamlessly with Internet Harbor´s existing metro optical layer solution, a dynamic mesh-based ROADM network built upon the Coriant 7100 Nano Packet Optical Transport Platform. Service provisioning across the integrated muxponder/ROADM solution is provided by the Coriant Transport Network Management System (TNMS), an end-to-end management platform that enables Internet Harbor to simplify and accelerate point-to-point service activation while reducing operating expenses with automated provisioning capabilities.

To support the multi-city Groove deployments and ensure non-disruptive integration with the 7100 ROADM network, Coriant provided Internet Harbor with a comprehensive range of planning, design, installation, and maintenance services delivered by Coriant´s technical support team in China.

The Groove G30 NDP is purpose-built to deliver programmable, high speed, and secure bandwidth that today´s cloud applications require, with ultra-low power consumption, high density, and flexibility for high-performance data center connectivity at the lowest total cost.

The stackable solution supports 3.2 terabits of capacity throughput in a compact and highly pluggable 1RU form factor, and enables service providers and cloud and data center operators to build their own scalable and secure DCI transmission and optical line solutions with best-in-class functions, all enabled through open APIs.

The silicon photonics-enabled solution supports programmable DWDM line interfaces to optimize the bandwidth and performance of high-capacity transmission from 100G to 400G in metro, regional, or long-haul DCI applications.

Coriant delivers innovative and dynamic networking solutions for a fast-changing and cloud-centric business world. The Coriant portfolio of SDN-enabled, edge-to-core packet optical networking and DCI solutions enables network operators to cost-efficiently scale network capacity, reduce operational complexity, and create the resilient foundation for a new generation of mobile, video, and cloud services.

Coriant serves network operators around the world, including mobile and fixed line service providers, cloud and data center operators, Web 2.0 content providers, cable MSOs, government agencies, and large enterprises. With a distinguished heritage of technology innovation and service excellence, Coriant is helping its global customers maximize the value of their network infrastructure as demand for bandwidth explodes and the communications needs of businesses and consumers continue to evolve.
