Global operator Interoute has successfully deployed a packet transport platform from Coriant to improve operational efficiency and enhance future service delivery across its network in the UK.
Coriant has supplied its 7090 Series packet transport platform and sophisticated end-to-end network management software, which will enable Interoute to cost-efficiently support diverse end-user services on a unified, packet-based platform while accelerating service provisioning for customers.
“As part of our continuous drive for improvement we are enhancing our network to keep pace with our customers' evolving communications needs, including cloud-optimised connectivity and rapid service activation,” said Robin Tero, director of network transport, Interoute. “For this project we worked in close partnership with Coriant, through all phases of this network upgrade, including solution development, evaluation, testing, and implementation. The result is a state-of-the-art solution that not only provides a more efficient and scalable foundation for future customer service delivery, but also significantly simplifies our operational procedures.”
Deployed throughout Interoute's UK network, the MEF-certified 7090 platform supports Ethernet service delivery using MPLS-TP technology, which combines the resiliency and predictability of carrier-grade transport with the efficiencies of packet technology.
The Coriant 7090 platform also enables Interoute to consolidate a wide range of legacy traffic types and technologies, including PDH and SDH, on a single and highly scalable platform. To efficiently manage a mix of TDM and packet-based network services and simplify end-to-end service provisioning, Interoute will rely on Coriant TNMS, its transport network management system.
