MEF-certified Coriant® 7090 Packet Transport Platform Enables Consolidation of Legacy Infrastructure, Improves Operational Efficiencies, and Enhances Customer SLAs
MUNICH, Germany, 14 February 2017 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking solutions, today announced that Interoute, owner operator of a global cloud services platform and one of Europe's largest networks, has successfully deployed a state-of-the-art packet solution from Coriant to improve operational efficiencies and enhance future service delivery across its network in the United Kingdom (UK). The Coriant solution, which includes the Coriant® 7090 Packet Transport Platform and sophisticated end-to-end network management software, will enable Interoute to cost-efficiently support diverse end-user services on a unified, packet-based platform while accelerating service provisioning for customers.
"As part of our continuous drive for improvement we are enhancing our network to keep pace with our customers' evolving communications needs, including cloud-optimized connectivity and rapid service activation," said Robin Tero, Director of Network Transport, Interoute. "For this project we worked in close partnership with Coriant, through all phases of this network upgrade, including solution development, evaluation, testing, and implementation. The result is a state-of-the-art solution that not only provides a more efficient and scalable foundation for future customer service delivery, but also significantly simplifies our operational procedures."
Deployed throughout Interoute's UK network infrastructure, the MEF-certified 7090 solution supports cost-effective Ethernet service delivery using MPLS-TP technology, which combines the resiliency and predictability of carrier-grade transport with the efficiencies of packet technology. On a single and highly scalable platform, the Coriant 7090 solution also enables Interoute to efficiently consolidate a wide range of legacy traffic types and technologies, including PDH and SDH. To simplify end-to-end service provisioning and efficiently manage a mix of TDM and packet-based network services, Interoute will rely on Coriant® TNMS, a best-in-class transport network management system.
"Interoute is a provider that takes continuous improvement very seriously and strives to achieve new levels of service performance and network efficiencies to support its customers," said Richard Fellner, Regional Vice President, EMEA, Coriant. "This successful deployment is a perfect example of how Coriant solutions translate directly into compelling operational advantages for our customers."
