Coriant Light IP™ Solution Charts New Vision for IP-Optical Networking

Cost-disruptive Architecture for Scaling Networks to Meet Surging Traffic Demands via Innovative, High-performance Multi-layer IP-Optical Integration

NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 22 March 2016 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking solutions, today announced its Coriant Light IP™ Solution, an innovative approach to delivering high-bandwidth services with a cost-disruptive and high-performance network architecture that fits today's traffic profile.

As the mix in network traffic has increasingly shifted to bandwidth-intensive and asymmetric data applications such as streaming video and cloud-based services, service providers need to optimize their network designs to accommodate this exponential growth in data traffic without incurring continuous growth in their OpEx and CapEx.

The Coriant Light IP™ Solution leverages technological advances in photonics, silicon, and SDN/NFV to create a network architecture that integrates IP capabilities with the optical layer together with optimal control systems to maximize overall network efficiency while minimizing traffic latency. In essence, Coriant's solution provides an optimal combination of quality of experience to end users with the lowest cost for service providers.

"The explosion of Internet video and cloud services is driving a fundamental transformation of network traffic dynamics," said Uwe Fischer, Chief Technology Officer, Coriant. "Coriant is uniquely positioned to deliver this cost-disruptive, high-performance approach to network evolution with the company's pioneering heritage in IP/MPLS routing, packet optical networking, and SDN programmability and automation. With our deep understanding of service providers' networks, coupled with our transformational services capabilities, Coriant is ready to partner with our customers to pivot their networks into Light IP."
