Optimized for the growing surge in video and other hyper-scale Data Center Interconnect (DCI) traffic, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform supports an unmatched 3.2 terabits of capacity in a compact 1RU form factor, with up to six times higher system density than comparable offerings. This purpose-built solution also delivers the industry's lowest power consumption – up to 70 percent more power efficient versus competing available solutions. These capabilities drive down operational costs while increasing capacity to help network operators deliver profitable DCI services and enhance the end-user cloud experience.
The Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform simplifies provisioning of 10G, 40G, and 100G Wide Area Network (WAN) cloud connectivity services in metro, regional, and long haul DCI applications. Designed to cost-efficiently address the scalability requirements of today's cloud and data center networks, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform features the industry's most compelling pay-as-you-grow approach that enables the lowest startup costs, cost-effective scalability, and reduced equipment sparing costs.
Purpose-built to cost-effectively manage growing data traffic volumes to and between data centers, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform achieves its leading performance advantage by leveraging the latest innovations in high-speed optics, photonic/electrical integration, and silicon photonics. Key features and benefits of the stackable solution include:
·Highest density – industry-leading system density supports 3.2 Tbps in 1RU, a 60 percent improvement over the closest comparable DCI solution, and up to six times improvement over other competing solutions, leading to significant space and OpEx savings
·Lowest power consumption – 0.45W per GbE of duplex traffic enables up to 70 percent lower power consumption per 100G versus available competing products, dramatically reducing energy costs
·Lowest first cost – simple pay-as-you-grow system design and mix and match pluggable interfaces deliver industry's lowest first cost for 10G, 40G, and 100G services, enabling cost-efficient deployment and quick and easy scaling of capacity as data center traffic increases, as well as lowest cost onsite sparing
·Leading programmability/reach – powered by Coriant CloudWave™ Optics, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform supports dynamically adjustable modulation formats (16QAM, 8QAM, QPSK) to deliver cost-optimized optical reach in both metro and long haul applications
"Coriant is changing the game in data center interconnect with a breakthrough solution that helps cloud and data center operators deliver highly competitive and profitable services," said Paul Smelters, Executive Vice President, Product Management and Marketing, Coriant. "The Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform builds upon our leadership in high-speed optics and ensures the best end-user cloud experience at the lowest operational cost."
Ease of Deployment and Operation
The Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform provides standards-based interfaces that simplify integration and operation within cloud and data center environments, including support for open North Bound Interfaces (NBIs) and APIs. In addition, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform can be easily implemented over third-party open line systems or together with Coriant's optical layer solutions. The solution is fully integrated with Coriant planning, management, and control solutions, including the Coriant® Transport Network Management System (TNMS) and Coriant Transcend™ SDN Solution.
