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 transport.

"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.
