France's Hub One Selects Coriant for Packet Optical

Hub One, a leading player in mobility and telecoms services in France, has selected Coriant's 7100 Nano Packet Optical Transport Platform for a new WDM network interconnecting the airports of Paris -- Charles de Gaulle, Le Bourget and Orly.

Coriant's 7100 Nano is an integrated packet optical transport and multiservice delivery solution for wireless, fixed line and business services networks. With a small form factor, low power consumption, and a robust suite of features, the 7100 Nano is the ideal solution for multiservice metro deployments and data interconnect applications. It supports up to 88 channels, with interfaces ranging from 100 Mbps to 100 Gbps.  It also features an integrated dynamic optical core and intelligent services interfaces that together deliver Add/Drop Multiplexer (ADM) capability, Layer 2 packet switching on a single blade, and OTN multiplexing and switching. It offers software-configurable ports supporting SONET/SDH, OTN, Ethernet and Storage Area Network (SAN) interfaces.

"The three airports located in the Paris metropolitan area are some of the busiest across Europe, serving thousands of travelers every day. Providing a secure and reliable communications network is crucial for our customers," stated Patrice BĂ©lie, CEO of Hub One. "Global travelers and the local businesses providing services to the airports utilize a growing array of powerful mobile devices. As data consumption of travelers continues to increase and connectivity becomes increasingly important, the Coriant solution will provides us with proven technology to guarantee a continuous service to our end-user customers."
