Bhutan Tele­com has se­lected a back­bone so­lu­tion from Co­ri­ant for its new coun­try-wide DWDM in­fra­struc­ture net­work.

The op­er­a­tor is the mar­ket leader for tele­com and in­ter­net ser­vices in the King­dom of Bhutan, as well as the coun­try’s only fixed­line provider. Un­der the agree­ment, it will de­ploy Co­ri­ant’s hiT 7300 Multi-Haul Trans­port Plat­form, al­low­ing it to cost-ef­fec­tively scale op­ti­cal trans­port ca­pac­ity as band­width-in­ten­sive end-user ap­pli­ca­tions and ser­vices drive de­mand for in­creased net­work band­width.

Co­ri­ant’s plat­form will help Bhutan Tele­com en­hance the per­for­mance of its high-band­width busi­ness and con­sumer ser­vices, in­clud­ing 3G, LTE, VPN, and fixed line broad­band In­ter­net ac­cess. The new coun­try­wide op­ti­cal fi­bre back­bone net­work, which re- places Bhutan Tele­com’s ex­ist­ing SDH trans­mis­sion in­fra­struc­ture, will be based on Co­ri­ant’s co­her­ent op­ti­cal trans­mis­sion tech­nol­ogy.

The of­fer­ing in­cludes the Co­ri­ant Trans­port Net­work Man­age­ment Sys­tem (TNMS), an endto-end man­age­ment plat­form that sim­pli­fies ser­vice pro­vi­sion­ing and re­duces op­er­at­ing ex­penses, as well as a suite of pro­fes­sional ser­vices that will pro­vide Bhutan Tele­com with ex­per­tise in SDH net­work mi­gra­tion, pho­tonic layer plan­ning and de­sign, net­work in­stal­la­tion and main­te­nance, and other sup­port ser­vices.

Tshe­wang Gyelt­shen, CEO, Bhutan Tele­com, said: “As the com­mu­ni­ca­tions needs of our cus­tomers evolve, our new high-ca­pac­ity DWDM in­fra­struc­ture will al­low us to de­liver the ser­vice per­for­mance and qual­ity they re­quire to max­imise the value of re­li­able broad­band con­nec­tiv­ity.”

hiT 7300 is an in­dus- try-lead­ing co­her­ent op­ti­cal com­mu­ni­ca­tions sys­tem that sup­ports the se­cure and re­li­able trans­mis­sion of 100G+ per chan­nel. The hiT 7300 achieves a to­tal sys­tem ca­pac­ity of up to 9.6 Tbps per fi­bre pair via 96 x 100G chan­nels, and is de­signed to sup­port up to 25.6 Tbps when us­ing ad­vanced flexi-rate, flexi-grid, and su­per-chan­nel ca­pa­bil­i­ties pow­ered by Co­ri­ant CloudWave Op­tics.

“Bhutan Tele­com is an im­por­tant new cus­tomer for Co­ri­ant”, said Tar­ci­sio Ribeiro, Ex­ec­u­tive Vice Pres­i­dent, Global Sales & Ser­vices, Co­ri­ant. “We re­main com­mit­ted to bring­ing the in­dus­try’s most ad­vanced net­work­ing so­lu­tions to cus­tomers around the world as they build strate­gic in­fra­struc­ture net­works op­ti­mised for the best­pos­si­ble cus­tomer ex­pe­ri­ence.”
