France's RENATER Selects Coriant Universal Transport Platform and hiT 7300

RENATER, the French national telecommunications network for technology education and research, has selected Coriant to deploy a new 100G-capable end-to-end packet optical transport network .

Spanning approximately 15,000 kilometers of fiber optics and 75 points of presence, the RENATER transport infrastructure connects over 1,400 sites via campus, metropolitan, and regional networks and provides bandwidth and IP services that support a broad community of education and research institutions in France, as well as throughout Europe and the world.


The Coriant solution, which includes the Coriant mTera Universal Transport Platform (UTP) and Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform, met RENATER's stringent network architecture requirements with features such as hybrid Optical Transport Network (OTN) and packet switching, flexible protection and restoration, and coherent 100G optical transport. Management of the mTera UTP and hiT 7300 network nodes will be supported by the Coriant Transport Network Management System (TNMS), an end-to-end management platform that simplifies service provisioning and reduces operating expenses.

"Our customers continue to experience increased demand for fast, reliable, and high-capacity connectivity to support a wide range of critical research and education applications, including bandwidth-intensive data transfer, video conferencing, and grid computing," said Patrick Donath, director of RENATER. "In bringing new and more robust capabilities to our underlying transport infrastructure, we were looking for a highly flexible technology solution with the ability to efficiently and cost-effectively meet current as well as future capacity requirements – and Coriant proved the most capable and trusted solutions provider."
