Coriant Groove™ Open Line System, An ACG Market Impact

Coriant is applying its 35 years of experience and expertise in Tier 1 optical networking to deliver disaggregated, modular and open optical networking solutions.

Coriant today announced the evolution of its Groove G30 platform into a fully disaggregated open-line system (OLS). The high density, 1RU Groove G30 platform began shipping for data center interconnect (DCI) applications in Q2-2016. In Q1-2017, Coriant will make additional pluggable modules and configurations available to support industry leading densities for optical layer mux/demux and amplification for coherent and direct-detect wavelengths from Coriant and third-party transmission sources.

With native support for YANG modeling, NETCONF/RESTCONF protocols and open APIs, Groove configurations can be consistently managed and controlled, thus minimizing OPEX. The modular, pluggable architecture also minimizes start-up costs and creates a pay-as-you-go CAPEX model, matching incremental pluggable modules to services and bandwidth demands. Service providers considering a migration toward an open- line system or looking to minimize rack space will want to consider the high-density Coriant Groove™ OLS solution.
