SwissIX upgrades core network

SwissIX Internet Exchange, the largest Internet exchange point in Switzerland, has deployed the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform to scale interconnection bandwidth between core network sites to 100G and beyond.

Following rigorous evaluation and testing of competing solutions, SwissIX selected the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform based on its high density and low power consumption, as well as its proven reliability in challenging fiber conditions.

“This upgrade represents an important milestone in the SwissIX 2020 infrastructure project as we future-proof our network for the surging bandwidth demands of our peers,” said Ulf Kieber, President, SwissIX Internet Exchange. “The best-in-class Groove solution not only gives us tremendous efficiencies in terms of power and space, but also enables us to expand end-user connectivity to 100G while laying the foundation for core network scalability to 200G and beyond.”

Deployed in the most demanding DCI and internet exchange environments, the Coriant Groove™ G30 DCI Platform is an innovative stackable transport solution for cloud and data center networks that delivers industry-leading 3.2 Tbps of capacity throughput in a highly compact, power-efficient 1RU form factor.

“As traffic volumes between data centers drive demand for higher speed optical layer connectivity, link performance in DCI applications becomes increasingly critical, especially in cases where existing fiber plants present transmission challenges,” said Marcus Bienek, Director of Customer Operations Germany/Switzerland, Coriant. “We were pleased to deliver SwissIX a purpose-built DCI solution that demonstrated superior performance not only in terms of resiliency, but also system density, power efficiency, and pay-as-you-grow scalability.”

Powered by Coriant CloudWave™ Optics, the Coriant Groove™ G30 supports software programmable and highly scalable DWDM line rates (100G/150G/200G) that enable operators to maximize cost-efficiency and transmission performance in a broad range of metro, regional, and long haul DCI applications.
