Coriant product and services portfolio enhances optical network flexibility and resiliency while lowering CAPEX and OPEX

MUNICH, Germany, December 17, 2013 - Coriant, a global supplier of industry-leading optical networking solutions, announced today that Telefónica Vivo, the largest telecommunications company in Brazil, has selected Coriant's hiT 7300, hiT 7100, TNMS and related support services to drive network expansion and increase capacity in its optical backbone network. Telefónica Vivo's vision to provide enhanced end-user services has led to the increased need for a flexible and dynamic optical network. Coriant's portfolio of solutions, including 100G optical transport and OTN switching, enables Telefónica Vivo to deliver a network that offers enhanced broadband connectivity, while reducing total cost of ownership.

"The reliability and scalability of our optical service infrastructure is critical as we continue to introduce new and innovative digital services to consumer and business customers throughout Brazil," said Leonardo Capdeville, director at Vivo. "These new services require flexible and resilient connectivity, and always-on performance. The outstanding quality and stability of the Coriant portfolio of products, and a proven service and support team with exceptional optical networking expertise, were key decision factors as we looked to expand the capability of our backbone network and enhance the quality of experience for our end-user customers."

After successful competitive analysis, Telefónica Vivo selected Coriant's hiT 7300 intelligent optical transport platform, hiT 7100 OTN/MPLS-TP switch, and TNMS, a holistic network management system designed to simplify end-to-end service provisioning and control. Future-proof 40/100G coherent technology, a flexible ROADM architecture, and integrated packet and optical service capabilities were key portfolio features that played an important role in Telefónica Vivo's decision. In addition, the Coriant solution delivered tangible operational cost savings through improved efficiencies in space and power.

ShieldX's CEO and Founder, Ratinder Ahuja, believes that traditional security solutions are not designed to be effective in the cloud. The role of Data Loss Prevention must evolve in order to combat the challenges of changing infrastructure associated with modernized cloud environments. Ratinder will call out the notion that security processes and controls must be equally dynamic and able to adapt for the cloud. Utilizing four key factors of automation, enterprises can remediate issues and improve their security posture by maximizing their investments in legacy DLP solutions. The factors include new infrastructures opening up, public cloud, fast services and appliance models to fit in the new world of cloud security.
