Clouditalia Deploys Coriant Solution to Enable New Service Portfolio for Small and Medium Enterprises in Italy
Coriant® 7090 Packet Transport Platform Creates Efficient Foundation for Innovative Business Services and Applications, Including Flexible Gigabit Ethernet and Data Center Interconnect
NAPERVILLE, Illinois, 12 May 2015 – Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end transport networking solutions, today announced that Clouditalia, a provider of integrated telecommunications and cloud services throughout Italy, has deployed the Coriant® 7090 Packet Transport Platform to enhance service delivery to its Small and Medium Enterprise (SME) business customers. The Coriant Packet Transport Network (PTN) solution, which includes support for MPLS-TP, enables Clouditalia to cost-effectively deliver flexible Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) services directly to end-user business customers, while expanding support for growing cloud and Data Center Interconnect (DCI) applications. With the ability to efficiently support diverse traffic types on the same platform, the Coriant solution also enables Clouditalia to enhance customer value by seamlessly migrating legacy services such as E1, SDH, and lower bit rate Ethernet.
“Providing our customers a total solution – from multiservice cloud access to wholesale optical transport – is a cornerstone of our service differentiation,” said Marco Iannucci, Chief Executive Officer, Clouditalia. “This flexible and scalable PTN solution, which builds upon our Coriant-powered coherent 100G fiber optic network, significantly enhances our ability to deliver innovative new business services optimized for the current and future bandwidth needs of our small and medium-sized customers.”
In addition to supporting a broad range of TDM and packet-based services, the MPLS-TP-enabled 7090 PTN solution met Clouditalia’s stringent feature and performance requirements, including carrier-grade restoration and Quality of Service (QoS), efficient and redundant grooming and aggregation at the network edge, AC and DC power options, VLAN management, and support for ring- and mesh-based protection architectures. These 7090 capabilities ensure maximum flexibility in network design and service creation, while reducing operating costs such as space and power. With advanced network management capabilities, the Coriant PTN solution also enables Clouditalia to accelerate service deployment to meet the demands of their end-user business customers, while simplifying operations and enhancing overall agility and flexibility of network and service management.
“The 7090 solution enables Clouditalia to cost-effectively capitalize on the growing trend of enterprise customers moving more and more of their applications into the cloud by providing flexible and efficient GbE services from the datacenters directly to end-user business customers and bypassing traditionally complex and expensive IP-based transport infrastructure,” said Pat DiPietro, President & Chief Executive Officer, Coriant. “Interworking across the Coriant portfolio further enhances network efficiencies and service innovation– from flexible business services at the network edge to low latency optical transport in the core at 100G and beyond transmission speeds.”
The Coriant 7090 portfolio of PTN-enabled products offers service providers proven technology solutions optimized for packet-centric transport, including MPLS-TP and Carrier Ethernet (CE). Service emulation and connection-oriented QoS capabilities enable a seamless migration path from legacy SONET/SDH-based networks to more scalable and efficient packet-based transport infrastructure. With a broad set of scalable product and configuration options, the 7090 series helps service providers create tailored solutions based on the unique service requirements of their business customers.
