The Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform is purpose-built to deliver programmable, high speed, and secure bandwidth that today's cloud applications require, with ultra-low power consumption, high density, and flexibility for high-performance data center connectivity at the lowest total cost. The stackable solution supports 3.2 terabits of capacity throughput in a compact and highly pluggable 1RU form factor, and enables service providers and cloud and data center operators to build their own scalable and secure DCI transmission and optical line solutions with best-in-class functions, all enabled through open APIs. The solution supports programmable DWDM line interface to optimize the bandwidth and performance of high-capacity transmission from 100G to 400G in metro, regional, or long-haul DCI applications."One of the key advantages of the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Solution is its open and highly flexible system architecture," said Tarcisio Ribeiro, executive vice president and chief commercial and marketing officer for Coriant. "Seamless interworking with a third-party optical line system in this metro 100G deployment enabled Windstream to achieve the superior transmission benefits of the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform while accelerating time-to-revenue with operational simplicity and open interfaces." Coriant recently expanded the Groove solution with the introduction of an open, plug-and-play optical layer that delivers 3X the density over comparable solutions and unmatched configuration flexibility, including support for both coherent and direct detect optical layer applications.
