Hurricane Electric deploys Coriant Groove DCI platform

The market for data centre interconnect (DCI) equipment continues to expand and Coriant is enjoying its share of the action. Hurricane Electric, which claims to operate the world’s largest IPv6 backbone, has deployed the vendor's Groove G30 platform to connect data centres in Silicon Valley.

Ranked amongst the top in the world, Hurricane Electric's international backbone has connections ranging from multiple 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) to multiple 100 GbE. Coriant’s modular transport platform was chosen to scale capacity between key data centre locations in Silicon Valley – including San Francisco, Palo Alto, San Jose, and Fremont – as well as for its ability to support efficient multi-terabit optical transmission over dark fibre metro and regional networks. The Groove G30 platform will also use alien wavelengths to extend multi-terabit connectivity between regions.

Mike Leber, president at Hurricane Electric, commented: ‘We continue to enhance our network infrastructure to meet the throughput and low latency requirements our global customers require to deliver a best-in-class Internet experience. Interconnection needs in Silicon Valley are some of the most demanding in the world, and as we scaled our fibre optic transport backbone in the Bay Area we needed a proven solution with superior technical capabilities. The Coriant Groove G30 was a perfect fit for our need, and proved to be extremely easy to use and quick to deploy.’

Added Jon Fishlow, managing director at Coriant: ‘We are delighted that Hurricane Electric selected Coriant as their networking partner of choice for this important transport upgrade project. This new deployment represents further validation of our Groove G30 solution, which is currently providing resilient and efficient transport for many of the world’s leading service providers and web-scale Internet operators.’

Coriant is winning ‘Groovy’ customers all over the world, with recent announcements from Japan and Columbia (see JPIX boosts capacity in Tokyo and Osaka with Coriant Groove and Coriant to deploy Groove platform for Telefonica Colombia).
