Beijing Internet Harbor Technology Co., Ltd. Enhances High-Speed Enterprise Cloud Services from Beijing to Guangzhou with Integrated Muxponder and ROADM Solution
NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 17 May 2017: Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking and DCI solutions, today announced that Beijing Internet Harbor Technology Co., Ltd. ("BIH"), a leading provider of Internet Data Center (IDC) and value-added cloud computing services in China, has deployed the Coriant Groove™ G30 Network Disaggregation Platform (NDP) 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. The Coriant Groove™ G30 solution for Internet Harbor includes coherent 200G line side transmission, and spans major metropolitan cities across China, including Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen.
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 maximizing utilization of fiber resources with coherent 200G DWDM transport. The Groove G30 integrates seamlessly with Internet Harborâs existing metro optical layer solution, a dynamic mesh-based ROADM network built upon the Coriant® 7100 Nano Packet Optical Transport Platform. Service provisioning across the integrated muxponder/ROADM solution is provided by the Coriant® Transport Network Management System (TNMS), an end-to-end management platform that enables Internet Harbor to simplify and accelerate point-to-point service activation while reducing operating expenses with automated provisioning capabilities.
"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 center interconnect services," said Ren Zhiyuan, CEO, Beijing Internet Harbor Technology Co., Ltd. "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 Grooveâ¢ G30 solution, we are positioned to take our data center interconnect services to an entirely new level."
To support the multi-city Groove deployments and ensure non-disruptive integration with the 7100 ROADM network, Coriant provided Internet Harbor with a comprehensive range of planning, design, installation, and maintenance services delivered by Coriant's technical support team in China.
"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, Asia Pacific, Coriant.
The Groove G30 NDP is purpose-built to deliver programmable, high speed, and secure bandwidth that todayâs cloud applications require, with ultra-low power consumption, high density, and flexibility for high-performance data center connectivity at the lowest total cost. The stackable solution supports 3.2 terabits of capacity throughput in a compact and highly pluggable 1RU form factor, and enables service providers and cloud and data center operators to build their own scalable and secure DCI transmission and optical line solutions with best-in-class functions, all enabled through open APIs. The silicon photonics-enabled solution supports programmable DWDM line interfaces to optimize the bandwidth and performance of high-capacity transmission from 100G to 400G in metro, regional, or long-haul DCI applications.
