Telia Carrier and Coriant plan to introduce 400G-capable Coriant CloudWave Optics technology to the pan-European carrier’s backbone network, the companies announced.

The power-efficient coherent interface technology will enable Telia Carrier to double the capacity and reduce latency on its DWDM infrastructure, which is based on the Coriant’s hiT 7300 multi-haul transport platform.  

The first deployment of Coriant CloudWave Optics in Telia Carrier’s network will include a 400G-enabled fibre route between the cities Copenhagen, Denmark and Frankfurt, Germany.

Via the software programmable modulation capabilities, Coriant Cloudwave Optics will also enable Telia Carrier to maximise reach and performance throughout its wider network, including the challenging fibre routes such as subsea long-haul transmission to London, a major Internet hub in the region.

‘As our customers in Europe experience increased demand for capacity to support their business-critical applications, we are committed to investing in best-in-class innovation to stay at the forefront of service excellence,’ said Mattias Fridström, chief technology officer, Telia Carrier. ‘The Coriant solution enables us to significantly improve utilisation of our existing DWDM infrastructure and rapidly provision new services to meet our customers’ dynamic connectivity requirements.’

Tarcisio Ribeiro, executive vice president, global sales and services, says the selection of Coriant’s coherent optics solution ‘demonstrates the real-world value of optical layer programmability and fast service deployment’.

Coriant CloudWave Optics is a key photonic layer technology that combines an advanced signal processing engine, optimised integrated photonics, and embedded software intelligence to enhance optical performance, efficiency, and scalability in networks facing unprecedented traffic growth.
