Coriant Collaborates with Juniper Networks to Drive Integration of Network Layers

Companies demonstrate multi-vendor optical Long Haul interoperability between router and DWDM system

SAN FRANCISCO, California, March 12, 2014 - Coriant, a global supplier of dynamic metro-to-core transport solutions, today announced the latest progress in its collaboration with Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation, to create an integrated packet transport network (IPTN), which the two companies are demonstrating live this month at the Optical Fiber Communications Conference (OFC 2014). Recent joint R&D between the two networking innovators resulted in the first multi-vendor line side interworking between router and DWDM system suitable for long haul (LH) transmission.

This technology advancement will enable network operators to efficiently deploy a converged packet optical infrastructure that increases network capacity while lowering costs. Proven in leading carrier networks, the IPTN solution provides the foundation for faster and more reliable services optimized for high bandwidth applications driving network growth.

The IPTN solution is a combination of the Coriant hiT 7300 DWDM system, Coriant TransNet planning tool, and TNMS network management system with industry-leading Juniper Networks® MX Series and PTX Series routers. The latest interoperability test was carried out on line side interworking of PTX 100G DWDM interfaces with hiT 7300 transponders and line system. The results highlight new use cases in seamless packet optical networks, which now include regeneration of router interfaces and handoff between routers from different vendors, which were not previously attuned on the line side.

At OFC 2014, Coriant and Juniper Networks will demonstrate key functionality of their joint IPTN solution. At the Coriant (#2511) and Juniper (#309) booths, visitors will be able to see a live demonstration of line side interworking of 100G DWDM wavelengths. Both companies are committed to their collaboration on the IPTN solution and will continue to drive the full scope of packet optical integration including the interworking of the data plane, control plane and management plane based on standardized, open interfaces.

"We see this collaboration between Coriant and Juniper as an important step that allows operators to offer reliable and scalable networks for richer services to its end-users by a tighter integration of the IP/MPLS and optical network layers," said Uwe Fischer, Chief Technology Officer at Coriant. "Both companies are highly motivated to create integrated packet network transport solutions to contend with the exponential growth in data and to offer long-term support to our customers from now and well into the future."

"Juniper Networks has a long-standing history of developing open, interoperable solutions for our customers. Extending our partnership with Coriant is another example of Juniper working with best-in-class technology partners to simplify network infrastructure and help customers scale. Our established relationship with the optical networking development team at Coriant extends our collaboration as multilayer interworking continues to be critical to the performance of our customers' networks," said Paul Obsitnik, Vice President, Service Provider Marketing at Juniper Networks. "We are pleased with the test results that highlight additional use cases that Coriant and Juniper can offer to operators."

In his keynote at 19th Cloud Expo, Sheng Liang, co-founder and CEO of Rancher Labs, discussed the technological advances and new business opportunities created by the rapid adoption of containers. With the success of Amazon Web Services (AWS) and various open source technologies used to build private clouds, cloud computing has become an essential component of IT strategy. However, users continue to face challenges in implementing clouds, as older technologies evolve and newer ones like Docker c...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
