Hurricane Electric has deployed Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform in a Data Center Interconnect (DCI) application.
Coriant G30 solution enables
Hurricane Electric to meet the growing customer demand for high
capacity service connectivity with flexible, efficient and low
latency multi-terabit optical transport.
Mike Leber, president of Hurricane Electric, commented: "We
continue to enhance our network infrastructure to meet the
throughput and low latency requirements our global customers
require to deliver a best-in-class Internet experience.
Interconnection needs in Silicon Valley are some of the most
demanding in the world, and as we scaled our fiber optic
transport backbone in the Bay Area we needed a proven solution
with superior technical capabilities. The Coriant Groove G30
was a perfect fit for our need, and proved to be extremely easy
to use and quick to deploy."
Hurricane Electric chose the Coriant Groove G30 solution to
scale capacity between key data centre locations in Silicon
Valley, which includes San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, and
Fremont. The Coriant DCI solution is designed to support
efficient multi-terabit optical transmission over dark fibre
metro and regional applications, and will also enable Hurricane
Electric to extend multi-terabit connectivity between regions
using alien wavelength service applications. Providing an all
in one solution for all of Hurricane Electric’s
backbone transport needs.
"We are delighted that Hurricane Electric selected Coriant
as their networking partner of choice for this important
transport upgrade project. This new deployment represents
further validation of our Groove G30 solution, which is
currently providing resilient and efficient transport for many
of the world’s leading service providers and
web-scale Internet operators," added Jon Fishlow, managing
director of enterprise sell-through business at Coriant.
The Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform is a
1RU modular open transport solution designed to deliver
programmable, high speed, and secure bandwidth optimized for
the growing capacity demands of mobile, video, IoT, and cloud
applications. The Groove G30 can be equipped as a muxponder
terminal solution and as an Open Line System (OLS) optical
layer solution. Open APIs ensure rapid introduction and easy
integration within any network operating environment.
In December, Japan Internet Exchange Co (JPIX) also
deployed Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to
its Tokyo and Osaka metropolitan areas. The roll-out of
this new technology will enable JPIX to scale network capacity
and support the delivery of high-performance services including
10G, 40G and 100G, in the most cost-efficient way.
