Coriant Extends Service Flexibility to the Network Edge with New Packet Transport Solution
Coriant® 7090-2 CEM Packet Transport Platform Lowers the Cost of Service Delivery at the Network Edge and Simplifies TDM Migration
NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 03 May 2016 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking solutions, today announced it is expanding its portfolio of Packet Transport Network (PTN) solutions with the introduction of the Coriant® 7090-2 CEM Packet Transport Platform. In a high-capacity and ultra-compact form factor, the 7090-2 CEM extends provisioning of diverse packet services, including Carrier Ethernet, closer to the customer premises. The new Coriant solution helps network operators lower the cost of service delivery at the network edge while enhancing the end-to-end packet-based transport capabilities of the 7090 solutions portfolio.
The 7090-2 CEM is an MEF CE 2.0-certified MPLS-TP packet solution designed for cost-optimized deployment at the network edge. The environmentally-hardened solution enables service providers to meet a range of end-user network services and applications, including business Ethernet, private and hybrid cloud connectivity, mobile backhaul, and SDH/SONET migration. The 7090-2 CEM system architecture supports 16 Gbps of switching capacity in a compact, power-efficient 1RU chassis, and can be easily tailored to meet unique customer requirements with a flexible mix of end-user connectivity options, including Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet (GigE), and circuit-emulated TDM services such as E1/T1, DS-3, STM-1/OC-3, and STM-4/OC-12.
With the ability to support diverse traffic management, Quality of Service (QoS), OAM, and protection features for both MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet environments, the 7090-2 CEM can be easily integrated into virtually any packet network. In addition, support for legacy TDM technologies enables service providers to offer customers a smooth migration at the edge to more efficient and flexible packet-based transport.
"Next generation transport networks require an ever-increasing degree of packet-based flexibility at the edge of the network as the data connectivity needs of end-users continue to grow," said Mikko Hannula, Director of Product Management, Coriant. "The 7090-2 CEM is ideal for easing customer migration from TDM to packet-based services while extending the reach and value of our end-to-end 7090 solutions portfolio."
The 7090-2 CEM is an integral component of the Coriant product portfolio and works seamlessly with the Coriant® 7100 Packet Optical Transport Solutions, Coriant® mTera® Universal Transport Platform, and Coriant® hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform. With end-to-end management via the Coriant® Transport Network Management System (TNMS), the Coriant portfolio provides flexible and reliable transport solutions that meet a wide variety of service needs from access to metro/regional to the core.
