NYSERNet deploys ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) in statewide R&E network

OpenFabric(TM) cross-connect and ROADM technology provide automation, openness and agility

New York, New York, USA. April 17, 2018. ADVA (FSE: ADV) announced today that the New York State Education and Research Network (NYSERNet) has deployed its core technology to create an agile, open and automated transport network. NYSERNet, a non-profit organization that provides internet access to education, research and health care institutions, will use the open infrastructure to transport native and alien wavelengths at up to 200Gbit/s across New York State. Built on the ADVA FSP 3000 platform, including high-density CloudConnect(TM) shelves, the new infrastructure leverages ADVA's OpenFabric(TM) cross-connect technology for flexible service delivery. The network also features ADVA's route-and-select, flexgrid-capable ROADM architecture, ensuring NYSERNet can rapidly respond to growing demand for new services and bandwidth.

"ADVA's engineers have worked closely with us to ensure that this new solution addresses each of our specific networking demands. We now have a highly flexible and sustainable transport system - one that's open, fully redundant and able to provide our member institutions with access to next-generation bandwidth and optical services," said Bill Owens, CTO, NYSERNet. "ADVA's flexible and scalable technology empowers us to maximize our resources and prepare for a multi-Terabit future. With this deployment, we're ensuring world-class opportunities for faculty and students and helping our academic community stay at the forefront of scientific research."

NYSERNet's tailor-made transport network features some of ADVA's most innovative technology. The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) gives NYSERNt the ability to maximize the throughput of its optical layer, reduces operational complexity and offers scalability for future growth. The solution features ADVA's unique QuadFlex(TM) line cards for ultra-high capacity as well as the ADVA FSP 3000 OpenFabric(TM), an OTN cross-connect that extends the delivery of bandwidth services throughout NYSERNet's new network. ADVA's advanced ROADMs with flexgrid technology enhance spectral efficiency and enable an agile, fully automated optical network. Every aspect of the infrastructure will be overseen by the ADVA FSP Service Manager, giving NYSERNet's operators complete control and the ability to actively track, manage and remotely support the network.

"This solution takes the capacity of NYSERNet's network to a whole new level. And, just as importantly, it puts them in complete control. Now they can have instant access to capacity as and when it's required. This highly versatile and efficient transport system is perfect for the challenges NYSERNet faces today and ready for the demands of tomorrow," commented John Scherzinger, senior VP, sales, North America, ADVA. "Key to the success of this deployment was the flexibility and interoperability of our platform. Our open technology makes it simple to implement, install and manage. With our FSP 3000 platform and the ongoing support of our service team, NYSERNet will easily be able to address the growing communication and collaboration needs of New York's research and education community."

Day 4, Cisco Live! - The Wrap

Day 4 was the final day of our first ever Cisco Live! We had a great show, with many great conversations and new connections with existing and potential end users, resellers, partners and job hunters.

Day 3, Cisco Live!

Day 3 of Cisco Live is history! For Fiber Mountain, we continued to enjoy visits from decision makers and influencers who were eager to share their data center and structured cabling challenges.

Day 2, Cisco Live!

Tuesday was Day 2 of Cisco Live for Fiber Mountain and we continued to experience high levels of traffic, with many high value decision makers and influencers visiting our booth. One very interesting difference from most conferences I attend is that there are no titles on anyone's show badges. This allows open conversations without people being pretentious. I think this is a very good idea.

Day 1, Cisco Live!

Fiber Mountain is exhibiting at Cisco Live! In Las Vegas for the first time ever! Our first day was hugely successful from just about any perspective - from quantity and quality of booth visitors to successful meetings with customers.
