NAPERVILLE, Ill., Nov. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Coriant, a global supplier of SDN-enabled end-to-end transport solutions, today announced that PGASCOM has chosen the Coriant™ hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform to expand the capacity of its long haul submarine cable network that links Jakarta and Singapore. The hiT 7300 is an industry-leading, high-performance optical transport platform optimized for reliable and efficient transport in regional, long haul and ultra-long haul terrestrial and subsea networks. PGASCOM selected the future-proof hiT 7300 platform based on its ability to seamlessly increase network capacity, support flexible network configurations, and deliver unmatched reliability.
"For this critical expansion project we were looking for a DWDM platform with superior performance as well as an experienced support team with proven optical transport expertise – and Coriant has delivered both," said Jamalum Simamora, Network Operations General Manager, PGASCOM. "The Coriant solution will not only enable us to efficiently increase service capacity and expand our network without disrupting existing traffic, but also help extend the lifespan of our submarine network and seamlessly scale to meet future demands."
Widely deployed in the most demanding transport networks in the world, the hiT 7300 delivers superior density and reach, photonic mesh for enhanced resiliency and agility, and cost-effective scalability to 100G and beyond. The hiT 7300 will help PGASCOM improve optical performance in its Jakarta to Singapore long haul link and reliably expand network capacity in a pay-as-you-grow fashion to meet the evolving service demands of its end-user carrier customers. Key benefits of the Coriant solution include reduced latency, simpler operations due to a reduction of equipment at cable landing sites, and higher availability due to advanced optical layer management and mesh restoration.
"We are pleased to be chosen as PGASCOM's strategic partner as they expand their network," said Stefan Voll, Vice President, Product Management, Packet Optical & NMS, Coriant. "Submarine networks are critical for international broadband connectivity in Southeast Asia, and these networks can be a potential bottleneck due to the time, expense, and environmental challenges associated with capacity upgrades. Our solution meets these challenges with virtually unlimited capacity, system upgrade simplicity, and unparalleled resiliency."
The hiT 7300 is also a key component of the Coriant Dynamic Optical Cloud™ solution, which combines a flexible transport infrastructure, dynamic network control based on the Coriant Transcend™ SDN Solution, and integrated network planning to ensure that our customers are maximizing their network revenue by supporting differentiated services over an efficient transport network both today and long into the future.
