Telia Carrier, a leading global IP network provider based in Stockholm has deployed hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform for its pan-European backbone network. The 400G-capable Coriant CloudWave Optics coherent interface technology will enable Telia Carrier to double the capacity on its DWDM infrastructure.

The first implementation of Coriant CloudWave Optics in Telia Carrier’s pan-European backbone network will include a 400G-enabled fiber route between the cities of Copenhagen, Denmark and Frankfurt, Germany. The solution will also enable Telia Carrier to maximize reach and performance throughout their wider network, including across the challenging fiber routes such as subsea long haul transmission to London, a major Internet hub in the region, said Coriant.

Coriant notes that CloudWave Optics is a key photonic layer technology that combines a leading signal processing engine, optimized integrated photonics, and embedded software intelligence that brings a new level of optical performance, efficiency, and scalability to infrastructure networks facing unprecedented traffic growth. 

Mattias Fridström, Chief Technology Officer, Telia Carrier
The Coriant solution enables us to significantly improve utilization 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, Coriant
We are pleased to extend our long-standing relationship with Telia Carrier and continue to deliver the technology innovation that allows them to unlock the full potential of their DWDM infrastructure. The Coriant solution demonstrates the real-world value of optical layer programmability and fast service deployment.
