Hurricane Electric has deployed Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform in a Data Center Interconnect (DCI) application.

Mike Leber 195 x 200Coriant 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.
