Coriant Groove™ G30 Disaggregated Platform Update: Market Impact Report

Coriant announced new Coherent Multiservice Sleds for the Coriant Groove™ G30 Network Disaggregation Platform. The high-density, 1RU Groove G30 supports operation as an optical transponder for data center interconnect, metro, long-haul and submarine applications as well as an open line system for coherent and direct-detect wavelengths for Coriant or third-party sources.

The new coherent sleds are backward compatible with existing Groove G30 chassis and represent a significant enhancement in capacity, power and reach. The CHM1T sled module occupies one of four slots of the Groove G30 chassis and supports 3x400G client interfaces and 2x600G 64QAM coherent line-side interfaces. A chassis populated with all four sleds can deliver 4.8 Tb/s client and 4.8 Tb/s line-side capacity for a total of 9.6 Tb/s combined. Integration and collaboration with Coriant’s CloudWave™ Optics reduces power to 0.16 watts per gigabit. With 16nm DSP technology, optical transmission distances are significantly extended, including 400G, 50 GHz channel coherent transmission beyond 1,000 kilometers.

Service providers and web-scale Internet operators seeking high-density, multi-terabit, modular, disaggregated optical solutions should consider the enhanced Coriant Groove™ G30 platform with increased capacity and performance.
