Netsam expands Swedish metro network
Swedish communication service provider, Netsam has selected ADVA to help expand its metro network in answer to data demand.
Netsam was set up in 2018 as a joint venture between regional Swedish utility suppliers Habo Energi and Jonkoping Energi to run their municipal broadband networks. The new organisation was designed to help improve service quality and expand consumer choice through greater service competition.
The ADVA FSP 3000 open line system (OLS) with micro-ROADMs and ADVA FSP 150 demarcation technology allow Netsam the power to turn up new high-value services. The flexible ROADM-based photonic layer ensures the provider’s fibre resources are used with optimal efficiency. With this and the ADVA FSP 150 CPE solution deployed at customer premises, Netsam is able to provide SLA-based business services with speeds up to 100Gb/s. ADVA’s partner NetNordic, a Scandinavian solutions integrator, also played a key role in the project.
Rickard Höglund, communication architect at Netsam commented: ‘The ADVA and NetNordic teams bring the best technology and the support of world-class engineers. Both of these have been crucial in our transition to next-generation Ethernet services. The ADVA FSP 3000 platform creates a flexible network topology. That gives us the ability to rapidly respond to growing demand for new services and bandwidth at the touch of a button.’
Peter Atterlöf, director, sales, Nordics and Baltics at ADVA added: ‘Netsam’s new network delivers a huge boost in terms of capacity and efficiency. As the first CSP in the Nordics to utilize our flexible, metro-optimized technology to support 100Gbit/s packet services, it’s bringing new levels of agility and fibre efficiency to the region and ensuring its customers receive flexible, high-quality services at the most attractive possible prices. Our technology empowers Netsam to handle huge increases in traffic volume while also making savings on power and rack space.’
