Coriant launches Vibe X90 carrier-class white box packet switch and aggregation platform

Coriant has introduced the Coriant Vibe X90 Programmable Packet Platform – the first in its Vibe series of carrier-class white boxes – designed to enable cost-efficient service aggregation from access to the core.

Described as a ‘key enabler’ of Coriant’s Hyperscale Carrier Architecture, the Vibe series will be able to provide the foundation for a disaggregated open networking solution or be added to a COTS white box-based disaggregated networking solution to enable/enhance specific network applications.
