Coriant Groove™ G30 Network Disaggregation Platform Enhances Scalability and Agility of 100G+ Services in Alien Wavelength Application
NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 15 June 2017 – Coriant, a leading supplier of packet optical, IP, and SDN solutions to Tier 1 global service providers and web-scale Internet operators, today announced that NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group, has deployed the Coriant Groove™ G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to interconnect multiple data center sites in Hong Kong. Purpose-built for hyperscale density and low power consumption, the Coriant Groove™ G30 enables NTT Com to maximize utilization of its fiber infrastructure and deliver cost-efficient 100G+ Data Center Interconnect (DCI) services optimized for the mission-critical traffic demands of its regional and global customers.
In March 2017, NTT Com was recognized by the industry analyst firm Frost & Sullivan as a [leading Data Center Service provider in the Asia Pacific region](http://www.nttcominsight.com/frost-iq-apac-data-center-service-providers-2017/?utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=DC Campaign LEED Frost Report&utm_content=DC Campaign LEED Frost Report+CID_160e6ee20dcf8ae61bef6eaa28820ed2&utm_source=Email Marketing&utm_term=Frost IQ APAC DC Service Providers 2017). As a pioneer in SDN-enabled connectivity between enterprise clouds, colocation data centers and customer-owned data centers, NTT Com is at the forefront of next-generation infrastructure network innovation. The Coriant Groove™ G30, deployed in an alien wavelength application over existing NTT Com DWDM infrastructure, leverages an open, plug-and-play modular architecture to accelerate deployment of revenue services with the ultimate in transport efficiency and operational simplicity.
