Bhutan Telecom has selected the Coriant® hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform as the backbone solution for its new country-wide DWDM infrastructure network to support its mobile and fixed network. The Operator is deploying the hiT 7300 platform to enhance the performance of its high-bandwidth business and consumer services, including 3G, LTE, VPN, and fixed line broadband Internet access.

According to Coriant, the new country-wide optical fiber backbone network, which replaces Bhutan Telecom's existing SDH transmission infrastructure, will be based on Coriant's coherent optical transmission technology. The Coriant solution leverages key features of the compact and resilient hiT 7300 platform, including seamless scalability (10G, 40G, 100G, and beyond), cost-optimized ROADM flexibility, and end-to-end automated optical link control for optimal performance under changing network conditions. 

The Coriant solution offering includes the Coriant® Transport Network Management System(TNMS), an end-to-end management platform that simplifies service provisioning and reduces operating expenses.
