NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 7 November 2016 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end packet optical networking solutions, today announced it will showcase the industry-leading Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform and Coriant® 7100 Packet Optical Transport Platform as part of this year's SuperComputing 2016 SCinet, one of the most powerful and advanced showcase networks in the world. The Coriant solutions will support high-speed connectivity (e.g., 400G, 1 Tbps) underpinning SCinet’s Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and Metropolitan Area Network (MAN) transport infrastructure.

Created each year for the Supercomputing (SC) Conference, SCinet is a live, high-capacity network designed to support the revolutionary applications and experiments that are a hallmark of the annual conference, which takes place this year in Salt Lake City, Utah, November 13-18. SCinet will link the convention center to research and commercial networks around the world.

"SCinet is a highly sophisticated, high-performance network built upon cutting-edge technologies and the strategic collaboration of industry-recognized leaders," said Jim Stewart, Chief Technology Officer, Utah Education and Telehealth Network and Co-Chair of the SC16 Planning Committee’s WAN Transport Team. "We are pleased to have Coriant as a key participant in SCinet this year as we further advance the performance of our network and empower more robust and agile end-user services."

The Coriant solution for SCinet includes the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform, a stackable transport solution for cloud and data center networks that delivers 3.2 Tbps of capacity throughput in a highly compact and power-efficient 1RU form factor. Also included in the SCinet network implementation is the Coriant 7100 Nano, one of the industry's most widely deployed and flexible packet optical transport solutions optimized for a broad range of metro edge and core applications.

"Today's cloud networking and HPC applications demand stringent performance levels, including ultra-low latency and high-capacity service interconnect," said Bill Kautz, Director of Strategic Solutions Marketing, Coriant. "Coriant's purpose-built DCI and packet optical transport solutions are proven in the world's most demanding environments, and the opportunity to bring our best-in-class innovation to SCinet represents another important milestone in high performance networking."
