Coriant (booth 1715) will discuss how now, more than ever, innovation at the transport layer is critical to transformation as the ongoing explosion of video and the growing dominance of hyperscale cloud traffic intensify the opex and capex challenges faced by network operators around the world. Coriant is excited to be taking part in OFC 2017, where it will showcase the latest innovations in its portfolio and how they are redefining open, multi-layer transport from the network edge to the optical core. Highlights include the new Coriant Groove Open Line System (OLS). This latest product complements the company’s portfolio of packet-optical networking and data centre interconnect (DCI) platforms, enabling network operators to cost-efficiently scale network capacity, reduce operational complexity, and create the resilient foundation for a new generation of mobile, video, and cloud services.
