Nordic Firm Deploys ADVA's FSP 3000

June 01, 2017

Netnod today announced it is using ADVA Optical Networking technology to power its new Optical IX service. The Nordic Internet exchange operator has deployed the supplier’s FSP 3000 CloudConnect with QuadFlex 400Gbit/s, its hypervisor, and ADVA’s reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexers.

FSP 3000 CloudConnect is an open data center interconnect solution that supports Open Optical Line System hardware and OpenConfig protocols to enable customers to create multi-vendor networks. This solution enables Netnod to provide its customers with complete traffic control and connectivity of up to 100 gigabits per second.

“ADVA Optical Networking's DCI technology will enable Netnod to offer industry-leading optical IX services,” said Netnod CEO Lars Michael Jogbäck. “With a scalable platform built to accommodate significant increases in capacity, Netnod can offer customers more choice of how they connect and exchange traffic. Together with ADVA Optical Networking, Netnod is taking network automation to the next level. By offering a flexible, future-proof infrastructure with software-defined networking in the optical layer, Netnod will continue to be the number one choice for access to the highly-interconnected Nordic region, as well as the crucial Russian and Baltic markets.”

Nicklas Boqvist, sales manager of the Nordics and Baltics for ADVA Optical Networking, added: “Netnod customers are seeing an increased

demand for a greater range of robust solutions for higher capacity and connectivity. To do that takes exceptional levels of flexibility. That's exactly what our FSP 3000 QuadFlexline card delivers. As well as astoundingly high capacity, it gives Netnod the flexibility to offer their customers a wide variety of configurations.”

In addition to the Netnod deployment, ADVA Optical Networking today announced a deal with Poznan Supercomputing and Networking Center.

PSNC also has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect with QuadFlex 400Gbit/s technology. The PSNC 96-channel network connects supercomputing centers in Poznan and Warsaw, Poland, enabling the research and education community there to access data-intensive applications, collaborate, and distribute findings at what ADVA and PSNC say is an unprecedented scale.

Maciej Stroinski, technical director at PSNC, commented, “The giant leap in capacity opens up so many more possibilities. We can now provide almost unlimited access to our world-class IT resources, facilitating computational-based research into everything from climate modeling to space exploration. What’s more, we now have the power to seamlessly scale our network to accommodate the needs of tomorrow.”

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.
