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. It has been engineered to work with all open source and commercial SDN controllers.
