8 Sep 2011 Martinsried - ADVA Optical Networking has launched its 100G Metro solution designed specifically to address the continued fierce bandwidth growth in the metro environment. The new solution is a response to the demands of service providers and enterprises for efficient 100Gbit/s data transport across distances of up to 500km. Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, the 100G Metro solution increases the capacity of Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing (DWDM) networks while lowering cost and reducing space and power consumption.
The foundation of the 100G Metro solution is in its non-coherent 4x28G technology that enables four key efficiencies:
"Today's metro networks are rapidly reaching capacity. Service providers and enterprises are struggling to transport the enormous amounts of data required and this could seriously impact business operations", commented Christoph Glingener, chief technology officer of ADVA Optical Networking. "100G is the only solution to this problem, but it needs to be developed throughout the entire network, not just in the long haul. Our 100G Metro is the first solution on the market to address this issue, enabling our customers to meet their business expectations."
"Considering their history of success in the enterprise vertical, ADVA Optical Networkings latest 100GE Metro offering extends this by addressing the need for 100G among metro customers as well. The needs of the metro demand a much different solution, both technically and from a pricing perspective", stated Andrew Schmitt, directing analyst at Infonetics Research. "With this latest offering, 100G has leapt ahead of other higher speed alternatives, becoming a viable alternative to 10x10G."
The ADVA FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for service providers and large enterprises that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications.
