Australia's nbn selects Coriant CloudWave

nbn, the company building and operating Australia’s national broadband network, has selected the Coriant CloudWave Optics solution for its existing nationwide optical transport backbone network.

The nbn transcontinental optical transport backbone (known as the Transit Network) spans over 60,000 kilometers of fiber and is built upon the Coriant hiT 7300 Packet Optical Transport Platform. The Transit Network allows nbn to connect the different nbn Multi Technology Mix access nodes to points where the traffic is transferred to service providers, known as Point of Interconnect (POI). The access nodes are the modern equivalent of a local telephone exchange and can be located many thousands of kilometers from their corresponding POI, of which there are 121.

Coriant said the introduction of its CloudWave Optics technology within the existing hiT 7300 network will provide nbn the ability to leverage the industry’s latest advances in high-speed, low latency optical networking, including per-wavelength transmission at speeds of 200G and beyond.

“Coriant’s CloudWave solution will help us in scaling the nbn and connecting 8 million happy homes by 2020. Maximizing the performance of our fiber optic infrastructure is critical as we expand the capacity of the nbn network throughout Australia and enable residential and business customers to take full advantage of fast and reliable broadband,” said Peter Ryan, Chief Network Engineering Officer at nbn.
Deployment of the Coriant flexi-rate solution, which is scheduled to begin in 2017, will target high-traffic routes within the nationwide nbn backbone network.

“Keeping pace with end-user traffic demands while lower operating costs is a challenge shared by network operators and cloud providers around the world,” said Petri Markkanen, Managing
Director, Asia Pacific, Coriant. “Our CloudWave Optics solution provides these operators a powerful toolkit to seamlessly scale to higher speeds while delivering proven ROI through lower power, reduced space, and improved reach performance.”

Coriant trials disaggregated 100/150/200G with Telefónica Germany

Coriant completed a network trial with Telefónica Germany that featured disaggregated 100, 150 and 200 Gbit/s transmission over live fibre links in the existing 10 Gbit/s DWDM dispersion compensated network.

The recently completed trial with Telefonica Germany involved the Coriant Groove G30 network disaggregation platform and demonstrated the ability to cost-efficiently increase the performance of deployed optical infrastructure using advanced disaggregated optical transmission and open networking capabilities.

The alien wavelength trial was implemented over three separate live links in Telefónica's existing 10 Gbit/s DWDM transmission network spanning distances of 1,070 km, 630 km and 290 km, with connectivity to key network sites including Düsseldorf and Frankfurt.

Supporting interoperability with Telefónica's existing 10 Gbit/s optical line system, the Coriant Groove solution achieved disaggregated 100 Gbit/s transport across all three links, 150 Gbit/s over the 630 km and 290 km links, and 200 Gbit/s capacity over the 290 km connection.

Coriant stated that following the successful trial, in mid-2017 it plans to work with Telefónica Germany to conduct further alien wavelength testing on the operator's 100 Gbit/s national backbone network in Germany utilising the disaggregated Coriant Groove G30 muxponder solution.




  • In 2015, Telefónica Germany deployed the Coriant 8600 Smart Router Series and 8000 Intelligent Network Manager (INM) to upgrade its mobile backhaul network and support the integration of the O2 and E-Plus network infrastructures.
