12 Dec 2014

US-based supplier Coriant has been selected by China Unicom to expand the telco’s 100G backbone network linking the cities of Wuhan, Hefei and Nanjing. Under the deal Coriant will supply its hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Transport Platform, which the vendor says will provide Unicom with superior capacity as well as support of photonic mesh configurations and scalability from 40G to 100G and beyond. The director of network technology at China Unicom’s Network Technology Research Institute, Guangquan Wang commented: ‘We’re constantly working to accelerate the expansion of our mobile communications network across China, while providing our customers with high-quality broadband communications and information services. For this network expansion we chose the Coriant hiT 7300 solution because it enables us to support an upgrade without interrupting existing traffic. It also provides us with the flexibility to add capacity as network demands increase.’
