Massive amount of digital traffic is negatively affecting the end user experience as bandwidth intensive services are being accessed by consumers, SMBs, enterprises and everyone else. Network operators are looking for flexible and open solutions that can be configured to more effectively manage Data Center Interconnect (DCI) and metro transport applications cost effectively. The Coriant (News - Alert) Groove G30 is a platform that can deliver on these points, which is why it was recognized by the annual Next Generation Optical Networking and Optical Data Centre Interconnect (NGON & Optical DCI) industry event with an award for the Best Optical Open Line System (OLS) Product.


The award is given in recognition of vendors in the optical networking industry who have developed innovative solutions as it applies to the technology, pricing, service and support, management tools, R&D roadmap, and cost.

“We are pleased that our Groove G30 has been recognized as the best Optical Open Line System Product by NGON & Optical DCI and its distinguished panel of industry analyst judges. Coriant innovation continues to drive the evolution of optical transport to empower more cost-disruptive network architectures to significantly reduce CapEx and OpEx,” said JC Fahmy, Vice President of Product Line Management, Data Center Solutions, Coriant.

Coriant develops networking solutions to keep pace with the highly-dynamic digital ecosystem in which businesses operate today. Whether it is cloud, real-time services, or conferencing, network operators need technologies to scale network capacity, reduce operational complexity, and the infrastructure to deliver these services.
