Coriant powers China's Beijing Internet Harbor Technology's data center services

18 May 17

SDN and optical packet solutions provider Coriant has scored a contract with Chinese data center service provider Beijing Internet Harbor Technology to deploy solutions that will boost capacity across China’s major metropolitan cities.   

The company deployed Coriant Groove G30 Network Disaggregation Platform with the ultimate goal of scaling metro network capacity and enhancing high-speed interconnect services for end-user customers. Those customers include enterprises, internet providers and government agencies.

The solution was deployed in major Chinese cities, including Beijing, Ghangzhou, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

Ren Zhiyuan, CEO of Beijing Internet Harbour Technology, says that technology and cloud computing are transforming the enterprise communications space. Data center interconnect services are transforming with them.

“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,” Zhiyuan says.

Internet Harbor will be able to deliver 10G, 40G and 100G interconnect services while maximizing fiber resources. Coriant also provided Internet Harbor with planning, design, installation and maintenance services through its own technical support team in China.

According to Coriant, the G30 NDP is able to deliver programmable, secure and high-speed bandwidth that most cloud applications require. It is built enabled with silicon photonics which can support DWDM line interfaces that can optimise performance and bandwidth of high-capacity transmission from 100G to 400G in metro, regional or long-haul DCI applications.

“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,” comments Petri Markkanen, Coriant’s Asia Pacific managing director.
