Coriant GmbH says that Indonesian fiber-optic network operator PGASCOM has chosen the Coriant hiT 7300 multi-haul transport platform to expand the capacity of its long-haul submarine cable network that links Jakarta and Singapore.

PGASCOM selected the hiT 7300 platform based on its ability to seamlessly increase network capacity, support flexible network configurations, and deliver unmatched reliability, according to Coriant.

"For this critical expansion project we were looking for a DWDM platform with superior performance as well as an experienced support team with proven optical transport expertise – and Coriant has delivered both," said Jamalum Simamora, network operations general manager, PGASCOM, by way of evidence. "The Coriant solution will not only enable us to efficiently increase service capacity and expand our network without disrupting existing traffic, but also help extend the lifespan of our submarine network and seamlessly scale to meet future demands."

The hiT 7300 will help PGASCOM improve optical performance in its Jakarta to Singapore long-haul undersea cable link and expand network capacity in a pay-as-you-grow fashion to meet the evolving service demands of its end-user carrier customers, Coriant adds. Key benefits also include reduced latency, simpler operations due to a reduction of equipment at cable landing sites, and higher availability due to advanced optical layer management and mesh restoration.

"We are pleased to be chosen as PGASCOM's strategic partner as they expand their network," said. "Submarine networks are critical for international broadband connectivity in Southeast Asia, and these networks can be a potential bottleneck due to the time, expense, and environmental challenges associated with capacity upgrades. Our solution meets these challenges with virtually unlimited capacity, system upgrade simplicity, and unparalleled resiliency," said Stefan Voll, vice president, product management, packet optical and network management systems, Coriant.
