Aureon Technology has teamed up with Coriant by adding its 7100 Nano platform, which supports transmission speeds of 100G per wavelength, to enhance the scalability, flexibility and reliability of its fibre-optic network.

To continue to meet the ever-increasing demand of its rural and metropolitan-based customers for bandwidth of voice, video, and data needs, Aureon Technologies has selected Coriant’s 100G 7100 Nano platform, delivered in collaboration with T3 Wireless, to improve the performance of its end-to-end connectivity services and cost-efficiently scale network capacity.

“Access to reliable and high-quality broadband services is critical to economic development and business growth as application demands become increasingly dynamic and bandwidth intensive,” said Will Walling, vice president of network services at Aureon Technology.

“By partnering with Coriant and T3 Wireless, we can offer best-in-class technology innovation to boost the scalability and performance of our fibre-optic network to better serve our clients.”

The packet optical transport solution also supports a wide variety of services types – such as OTN, Ethernet, packet, and SONET/SDH – to further enable Aureon to customise its solutions and implement them quickly.

Joe Shilgalis, regional vice president of North America at Coriant, added: “The feature-rich capabilities of the 7100 Nano make it an ideal solution for rural operators and fibre consortia looking to non-disruptively introduce new levels of network scalability and service agility, while improving operational efficiencies.”

The initial deployment will span the northeast quadrant of the state of Iowa and include ten network nodes.

Earlier this month, Coriant technologies was selected by Turkmenistan’s ministry of communications to deploy a national backbone network.
