We live in a world of virtualised resources and distributed systems. From evolving radio access networks, to algorithmic and high-frequency trading platforms, to smart national power grids and beyond, all these environments are designed for flawless performance and need to be timed with increasing precision. To ensure that performance is maximised, all appliances in a network need to be interconnected at the lowest latency and synchronised to sub-microsecond precision, ensuring tight coordination.
ADVA Optical Networking AG
JOHANNESBURG, SOUTH AFRICA -- ADVA Optical Networking today announced that it has been selected as the technology partner of FibreCo Telecommunications, enabling the fiber network operator to roll out high-bandwidth services across South Africa. FibreCo, one of the country's leading communication service providers, will harness ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 metro and long-haul technology to offer tailor-made connectivity services to its business, government and carrier customers.
ADVA Optical Networking has launched the FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4), a device engineered to help communications service providers more easily and cost-effectively introduce network functions virtualisation (NFV) into their networks.
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.

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.
ADVA Optical Networking introduced its new network functions virtualisation (NFV) product family to the industry at the Open Networking Summit (ONS) 2015. The ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series is a unique multi-layer service demarcation product that has been specifically engineered to enable network operators to smoothly introduce NFV-based services.
ADVA Optical Networking has launched its new ConnectGuard product family. Engineered specifically to provide the most advanced data protection possible, ConnectGuard presents service providers and enterprises with unique solutions to secure their connectivity networks.
ADVA Optical Networking recently launched its new FSP 3000 Access Link Monitoring (ALM) solution in response to operators’ demands for greater insights into expanding fibre access networks.
