The First Fully Pluggable Optical Layer
Offering the Ultimate in Flexibility and Cost-efficiency
Coriant® Pluggable Optical Layer
As video, cloud, and mobile applications drive increased demand for transport capacity, Coriant is bringing a revolutionary approach to metro networks with the industry’s first fully Pluggable Optical Layer, an innovative and cost-saving approach to building out flexible, high-speed metro optical networks to meet a broad range of fixed and mobile applications.
By disaggregating the full suite of optical layer components into compact pluggables, the Pluggable Optical Layer provides the ability to mix and match different functional components, giving service providers the tools to customize metro optical network deployments (e.g., fixed DWDM, CWDM, and ROADM) without having to pay for unwanted or unneeded functionality. As end-user needs evolve, new functionality can be easily and cost effectively introduced by adding or swapping additional components, while preserving investment in those components that do not need to change.
