Juniper Networks and Coriant Partner for Converged Packet Optical Backbone

By CIOReview | Friday, November 14, 2014

FREMONT, CA: Kazakhteleom JSC selected Juniper Networks and Coriant to provide Integrated Packet Transport Network (IPTN) in order to build a converged packet optical national backbone. To that end, Juniper Networks collaborated with Coriant to demonstrate 100Gbps Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) services in a live field trial for Kazakhtelecom JSC. The 100Gbps DWDM services were streamed from Juniper Networks’ PTX 5000 routing platform to the Coriant hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform.  

The intent is to provide integrated end-to-end provisioning of 100Gbps services across Internet Protocol/Multiprotocol Label Switching (IP/MPLS) DWDM infrastructure for greater data connectivity and transmission across Kazakhtelecom JSC network.

The technology used in the collaborative effort is seamless and resilient across the network infrastructure which will aid Kazakhtelecom JSC’s current and new high-speed services and applications. The live trial conducted is part of a broader expansion projects for the Kazakhstan’s major service provider.

Flexible IPTN solution resulted in successfully conducting the field trial while simultaneously carrying out data transmission through existing 100Gbps coherent network with live traffic. The trial demonstrated IPTN’s engineering robustness. The trial recorded zero bit error rate for a stretch of up to 130km.
