Coriant Announces CloudWave Optics with Programmable Modulation

Coriant unveiled a suite of software-programmable photonic layer technologies for bringing flexibility, efficiency, and scalability to next-generation optical transmission networks.

The Coriant CloudWave Optics suite includes photonics, software programmable line side modulation, tunable spectral allocation, and channel frequency flexibility capabilities. The suite can be implemented on the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform and the Coriant mTera™ Universal Transport Platform.

Key features and benefits of Coriant's flexi-rate solutions portfolio include:

  • Flexible, multi-functional provisioning of service capacity with a single, compact and software-programmable line side interface that can dynamically adapt to a wide range of metro, regional, LH, ULH, subsea, and DCI transport applications
  • Cost-optimized capacity, reach and service performance based on a unique combination of flexi-rate and super-channel features with dynamically adjustable modulation formats (e.g., QPSK, 8QAM, 16QAM), flexible bit rate transmission options (100G, 200G, 300G, 400G), and state-of-the-art RAMAN with up to 25.6Tb/s per fiber in meshed optical networks
  • Lower total cost of ownership via industry-leading power and space efficiency, increased spectral efficiency (up to 33%), increased fiber capacity (up to 166%), and reduced sparing requirements
  • Optimal utilization of optical channel capacity with an innovative, software-programmable system architecture that maximizes client/line-side interconnectivity and throughput efficiencies
  • Seamless interworking with all legacy and third-party infrastructure (e.g., fixed, colorless, directionless, gridless, 40/80/96 channels, etc.), all major fiber types, and across Coriant's metro, ULH/LH, and DCI-optimized packet optical transport platforms

"Increased demand for dynamic, cloud-centric services and applications is a driving force behind innovation in optical layer technologies," said Ken Craft, Executive Vice, Products and Technology, Coriant. "Our programmable flexi-rate capabilities are specifically designed to help service providers and data center operators efficiently and cost-effectively scale their service infrastructure in the face of continued demand for network capacity and highly unpredictable traffic patterns and transport connectivity requirements."
