ADVA Tunes its FSP 3000 for Cloud Computing

ADVA Optical Networking released a new version of its flagship FSP 3000 product optimized for cloud computing applications. With cloud computing, data center operators must deliver reliable storage and compute resources at often very short notice. The new capabilities are designed to help operators provide ultra-high bandwidth between data centers and remote backup locations.


ADVA's FSP 3000 is a multi-service metro and regional transport platform supporting optical access, backhaul and wavelength services. It is also used private enterprise networks over dark fiber. As a WDM system, it offers up to 80 protected wavelength carried over various topologies.


ADVA said its enhanced FSP 3000 empowers an operator to choose any transport protocol at any rate and transport it over a fully tunable long-haul DWDM channel. Specifically, the FSP 3000 can deliver speeds that range from 1, 2, 4, 8 to 10 Gbps, while addressing all storage interfaces currently in use in today's data centers, including Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet, among others.


In addition, the FSP 3000 offers optional encryption. Security is addressed at the most efficient and cost-effective transport layer, providing high security with minimum impact on latency. It thereby creates a strong and viable solution for high-performance networks in the data center and cloud computing environment.


"In the context of Cloud Computing, the network is a critical asset and the selection of the right transport technology is vitally important. Most existing multi-protocol platforms require protocol conversion and add significant latency to the network. Our new FSP 3000 does not," stated Christoph Glingener, chief technology officer of ADVA Optical Networking.
