HOPUS selects Coriant Groove platform to evolve transport infrastructure

Marseille-based IP connectivity services provider, Hopus has selected Coriant’s Groove G30 platform to help evolve its resilient, high-capacity transport infrastructure that provides quality routes to major networks.

The new regional network deployment will support 100G DWDM transport between the Paris and Amsterdam metropolitan markets and enable efficient delivery of end-to-end internet exchange and IP services. The disaggregation platform was chosen to help cost-efficiently scale network capacity and accelerate provisioning of high-speed transit services, to meet the growing IP traffic demands and dynamic applications of its domestic and international service provider, content provider, and internet access customers.

The Groove G30 platform is a 1RU modular open transport solution, designed to deliver programmable, high speed, and secure bandwidth optimised for the growing capacity demands of mobile, video, IoT, and cloud applications. Widely deployed in web-scale internet operator, service provider, IXP, and cable MSO networks, the platform can be equipped as a muxponder terminal solution and as an Open Line System (OLS) optical layer solution. Open APIs ensure rapid introduction and easy integration within any network operating environment.

Philippe Duguet, CEO at Hopus commented: ‘With the unabated explosion of high-bandwidth end-user applications, not only is demand for capacity growing, but so is our customers’ need for faster response times. In order to address these evolving demands, we needed an optical transport solution that could meet our stringent performance requirements for efficiency, scalability, and resiliency, while offering operational simplicity and flexibility to facilitate fast and easy service deployment.’

The Groove platform has also been used by Latin American connectivity infrastructure and ICT solutions provider InterNexa to complete an open optical transport field trial featuring disaggregated 100G and 200G transmission over third-party optical infrastructure (see Latin America gets into the Groove with InterNexa and Coriant).
