Coriant says it has supplied the Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform to Hurricane Electric for data center interconnect purposes in Silicon Valley. The IP transit service provider will be able to support both metro service requirements as well as multi-terabit optical transport between regions via alien wavelength service applications, Coriant asserts.
Hurricane Electric operates an international internet backbone through which it offers connectivity services from 10 Gigabit Ethernet to 100 Gigabit Ethernet (see, for example, "Hurricane Electric expands fiber-optic network in Middle East, Africa"). In the present application, the service provider will use the Coriant Groove G30 to connect several data centers in Silicon Valley, including facilities in San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, and its home base of Fremont, where it owns and operates a pair of data centers.
"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," said Mike Leber, president, Hurricane Electric. "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."
Coriant notes that the Groove G30 can be equipped as a muxponder terminal and as part of an open line system (OLS) optical layer. Its open APIs are designed to enable rapid deployment and facilitate integration within the network operating environment.
