Taiwan's Chunghwa Telecom Selects Coriant for 4G LTE Network Expansion

The Coriant 7090 Packet Transport Platform Extends Carrier Ethernet Services from the Metro Edge to Access Networks with Zero Touch Provisioning

NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 08 October 2014 – Coriant, a global supplier of dynamic metro-to-core transport solutions, announced that Chunghwa Telecom (CHT) has chosen Coriant to further enhance their mobile backhaul network. The 4G LTE infrastructure upgrade is part of CHT's continuing effort to utilize the most advanced technologies to provide the best possible broadband service experience for their customers in Taiwan.

The Coriant™ 7090 Packet Transport Platform offers mobile service providers such as CHT a broad range of migration options to seamlessly and cost-effectively migrate their current networks to a more cost-effective and efficient packet-based infrastructure. The modernized infrastructure also enables service providers to increase revenues by offering customers new services on a reliable packet-based network with the flexibility to support growing bandwidth needs. The 7090 product family enables end-to-end "any-service" transport, and provides the reliable foundation for revenue-generation through end-user services, including Triple Play, Carrier Ethernet, and private line (TDM, Carrier Ethernet) services. In mobile backhaul applications, the 7090 enables operators to save up to 40% in CapEx compared to router-centric (IP/MPLS-over-WDM) solutions.

"We are upgrading our LTE network to meet the ever-increasing expectations of our 10 million mobile subscribers," said Mr. Ruei-Chang Hsu, Vice President of Chunghwa Telecom. "Having a reliable vendor like Coriant with innovative leading-edge products that support our ambitious expansion plan is crucial for us."

"With our 7090 Packet Transport Platform, CHT will be able to provide their mobile customers competitive broadband services while maintaining the same reliable service they experience today," said Mikko Lavanti, Executive Vice President of Sales, Coriant. "We are pleased that CHT selected the Coriant 7090 Packet Transport Platform and look forward to supporting their service needs in the future."

The Coriant 7090 Packet Transport Platform complements Coriant's comprehensive packet optical transport offerings, which include the Coriant 7100 Nano Packet Optical Transport Platform, the Coriant mTera™ Universal Transport Platform, and the hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform, to provide a powerful, fully-integrated end-to-end solution for the efficient and flexible transport of "any-service" across access, aggregation and core networks.
