Munich-based hyperscale networking firm Coriant has unveiled a carrier-class, disaggregated IP/MPLS software offering designed for evolving carrier, enterprise, and cloud networks.

The Coriant Network Operating System is based on an open and modular software architecture designed to operate on industry-standard COTS white boxes as well as application-optimized white boxes such as the newly introduced Coriant Vibe X90 Programmable Packet Platform.

Features include hardware-independent flexibility and disaggregated software components such as Open Network Linux operating system, hardware abstraction layer, IP stack, and network protocol suite.

“By separating the NOS from the routing hardware, Coriant provides network operators the chance to break the vendor lock-in constraints of traditional IP routing solutions,” said Coriant R&D and PLM executive VP and CTO Uwe Fischer.
