Coriant upgrades 6350 Switch Node multiservice transport platform
Optical transport systems provider Coriant has unveiled what it terms “a significant capacity upgrade” for its 6350 Switch Node. The multiservice transport platform now features a 4X greater switch matrix (400 Gbps high order/80 Gbps low order) and increased service interface capacity (2.5G/10G).
Coriant says the switch matrix capacity increase will enable customers to save opex by replacing multiple nodes with one 6350, on a single shelf.
The Coriant 6350 is designed to support the graceful evolution of legacy SDH networks to packet-based infrastructure based on Ethernet and Optical Transport Network (OTN). The 6350 Switch Node uses SDH and Ethernet switching, along with low-order grooming capabilities, to support efficient, low latency transport of end-user business services, mobile backhaul, and IP offload traffic.
"Operators need an easy way to modernize their traditional SDH networks. With the quadrupled switching capacity of the 6350, operators can easily, and without disruption, upgrade existing nodes while adding new services," commented Alberto Barriento, Latin America and Caribbean Region Vice President for Coriant. "Coriant has thousands of 6300 series network elements deployed worldwide, and we are committed to ensuring seamless transition for our customers as they evolve their transport networks."
"It is a time of significant progress and new advances in the telecommunications industry. Ubiquitous broadband is unquestionably a force of positive change across Central America," commented Jorge Escobedo, CEO of Grupo STG. "At the core of the broadband movement is the end-to-end transport infrastructure that will serve as the engine for a new generation of services and applications linking citizens and communities across vast distances and driving economic development. Coriant has been a trusted partner for 20 years and this support is critical to our ability to meet the needs of our customers."
