ADVA Optical Networking

ADVA Optical Networking (booth 1709) will showcase its FSP Network Hypervisor – a key component in the drive to virtualise optical networks. The software has been specifically developed to help service providers automate service discovery and service activation, especially when paired with the ADVA FSP 3000 DCI platform. It creates an abstracted view of the underlying physical infrastructure, helping to decouple the complexities of managing photonic transmission systems while enabling greater network automation and optimisation.

ADVA enhances FSP 3000 CloudConnect DCI platform

In response to feedback from its customers, optical transport vendor ADVA Optical Networking has added new client rates, multiplexing and amplification capabilities to its FSP 3000 CloudConnect platform.

The company's flagship data centre interconnect (DCI) technology can now support 10Gb/s and 40Gb/s client rates in addition to 100Gb/s. This mix of client rates ensures that customers can effectively scale their DCI networks as their business demands. Also available are a range of new channel multiplexers, including a high-density 48-channel multiplexer on a single line card.
