Coriant Intros Pico Packet Optical Transport Platform

Coriant introduced a compact packet optical transport platform optimized for service enablement at the edge of metro networks, including Data Center Interconnect (DCI), flexible business services, mobile backhaul, and SONET/SDH network migration.

The Coriant 7100 Pico Packet Optical Transport Platform, which extends the reach of the Coriant 7100 product family, was designed using the same layer-agnostic switching philosophy. Coriant says its 7100 Pico’s high-density and low-power 2-rack-unit (2RU) design includes an innovative distributed processing architecture that distributes system processing across service modules, significantly reducing upfront costs and improving system reliability. The 7100 Pico also supports both AC and DC power options and the latest service modules from the 7100 product family, providing a cost-efficient foundation for high-value metro edge services.

The 7100 Pico supports all of the latest service modules from the 7100 product family, including the ultra-high density 10G and 100G transponders and muxponders; the Optical Transport Network (OTN) Add/Drop Multiplexer (ADM) on-a-blade; and the high-density, feature-rich packet switching module. Flexible service interface options ensure easy and cost-effective scalability from 1G to 10G to 100G. It can be deployed as a standalone network solution or seamlessly extend service-enabling capabilities to existing networks comprised of the 7100 Nano, 7100 OTS, Coriant mTera Universal Transport Platform, or Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform.

The 7100 Pico can also be deployed as a complementary aggregation device for the Coriant 7090 Packet Transport Platform and the Coriant 8600 Smart Router Series.

“With the continued growth in cloud computing, video-on-demand, and mobile broadband, network operators are facing a dramatic increase in bandwidth demand and highly unpredictable traffic patterns at the network edge,” said Ken Craft, Executive Vice President, Products and Technology, Coriant. “By extending proven packet optical transport flexibility and efficiency to the metro edge, the 7100 Pico helps our customers cost-effectively aggregate and transport diverse traffic and protocols, seamlessly scale to 100G, and dynamically adapt to next-generation service requirements.”
