ADVA's FSP 3000 Recognized for Energy Efficiency

October 16, 2017

ADVA Optical Networking last week was named a Layer 123 2017 Network Transformation Award winner. The company’s FSP 3000 platform received accolades for Best Energy Efficiency.

The award was presented during the SDN NFV World Congress. That took place in The Hague, Netherlands. ZTE’s Carrier Edge Data Center with Immersion Liquid Cooling System was the other winner in the energy efficiency category.

A panel of leading industry analysts picked the ADVA Optical Networking FSP 3000 out of the bunch. These judges included Caroline Chappell, principal analyst of Analysis Mason; Jennifer Clark, founder and general manager of Battle Green Research; Tim Doiron, principal analyst and practice lead of intelligent networking at ACG Research; and Eric Hanselman, chief analyst at 451 Research. Michael Howard, senior research director and advisor of carrier networks at IHS Markit;

Patrick Kelly, founder and principal analyst at Appledore Research Group;

Sue Rudd, director of service provider analysis at Strategy Analytics; David Snow, principal analyst for global telecom technology and software at GlobalData; and

Shin Umeda, vice president at Dell’Oro Group also participated in the judging.

The FSP 300 is a scalable optical transport solution that features 10gbps, 40gbps, and 100gbps transponders. It leverages multi-degree ROADM technology, GMPLS Control Plane software, dynamic routing, and automation. And ADVA says it reduces space and energy costs by up to 50 percent.

While this award is new, the ADVA Optical Networking FSP 3000 is not. However, this popular solution has always been energy efficient, ADVA says. And recent improvements have made it even more so.

ADVA recently reduced its power consumption toward 0.2W/gbps. The company says that’s a new benchmark for long-distance optical transport. That was possible via advances in cooling, improvements related to DC/DC voltage supply, and optimization between modularity and monolithic integration.

“Fueled by the surge in mobility and mass migration to the cloud, global ICT emissions are rising steeply,” says Stephan Rettenberger senior vice president of marketing and investor relations at ADVA Optical Networking. “Companies across the industry now recognize how urgently they need to limit future energy consumption and CO2 emissions. That's why so many are leveraging our FSP 3000. Sustainable optical networking is essential for the future of the planet. We’re proud to be at the forefront of that vital innovation.”

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.
