Coriant announced it has extended its long-standing network technology collaboration with Telefónica Colombia with the introduction of the Coriant Groove G30 muxponder platform.

The compact 1RU Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solution enables Telefónica Colombia to cost-efficiently deliver high-performance 100G interconnect solutions to large enterprises and web-scale Internet operators, while building upon a scalable and efficient end-to-end packet optical network powered by Coriant technology.

In addition to the recent deployment of the Groove G30 platform, the Coriant metro to long haul packet optical transport solution for Telefónica Colombia includes the latest features of the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform and the Coriant mTera Universal Transport Platform.

The tightly integrated solution helps Telefónica Colombia maximize utilization of deployed network resources to reduce CapEx, while accelerating service provisioning and reducing OpEx with end-to-end service management enabled by the Coriant Transport Network Management System (TNMS).
