Chinese data centre service provider Beijing Internet Harbor Technology (BIH) has deployed the Coriant Groove G30 network disaggregation platform (NDP) to boost capacity in major metropolitan cities across China.
The Coriant Groove G30 will help 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, in
major metropolitan cities across China, including: Beijing,
Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen.
"Digital technologies and cloud computing are rapidly
transforming the enterprise communications landscape across
China and driving the need for more scalable, flexible, and
efficient data centre interconnect services," said Ren Zhiyuan,
CEO of Beijing Internet Harbor Technology.
"From best-in-class metro transport solutions to a world-class
service and support team, Coriant has proven the ideal
technology partner as we have expanded our footprint and scaled
our metro infrastructure. With the addition of the Coriant
Groove G30 solution, we are positioned to take our data centre
interconnect services to an entirely new level."
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 maximising
utilisation of fibre resources with coherent 200G DWDM
"We are pleased to extend our relationship with Beijing
Internet Harbor and enhance their metro optical network
infrastructure with our industry-leading Groove muxponder
solution," said Petri Markkanen, managing director of
Asia-Pacific at Coriant.
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 centre
connectivity at the lowest total cost. The stackable solution
supports 3.2Tb of capacity throughput in a compact and highly
pluggable 1RU form factor.
