For service providers, data center operators, and enterprises selecting a cloud networking services provider, connectivity should be a primary consideration. The provider should have a strong backbone network, enabling direct, secure and private access to terabit-scale connectivity.

PacketFabric, a NantWorks company and provider of next-generation Ethernet-based cloud networking services, recently raised the bar for connectivity offerings when it deployed the Coriant Groove G30 DCI Platform to support its fully-automated software-defined networking-based solution.

PacketFabric selected the Coriant data center interconnection (DCI) platform for its unmatched performance and scalability. It provides PacketFabric with the necessary features and capacity to support its next-generation, software-enabled transport and interconnection platform. The scalable, flexible backbone network provided by Coriant responds to changing traffic patterns and accommodates the increasing demand for cloud and video services, among other benefits of its industry-leading DCI platform.

The Coriant Groove G30 DCI Platform is a stackable transport solution for data center, cloud and IX networks that delivers an industry-leading 3.2 Tbps of capacity throughput in a compact, power-efficient 1RU form factor. The platform supports programmable and highly-scalable DWDM line rates (100G/150G/200G).

“A critical component underpinning the functionality of the PacketFabric platform is access to massive amounts of underlying optical transport capacity,” stated Richard Steenbergen, Chief Technology Officer of PacketFabric. “As such, we carefully evaluated the latest state-of-the-art DWDM infrastructure offerings from a number of different sources. The Coriant Groove G30 DCI Platform delivered far and away the best scalability, density, and power efficiency in the market, as well as the SDN capabilities necessary to support our next-generation automated infrastructure.”

Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial and Marketing Officer at Coriant Tarcisio Ribeiro also commented on the partnership.

“We are pleased to partner with PacketFabric and support their revolutionary approach to interconnect services with a high-performance DCI solution optimized for their packet optical transport needs,” Ribeiro stated.
