ADVA Optical Adds Security Suite to FSP 3000 Platform

ADVA Optical Networking has enhanced its flagship FSP 3000 platform with a security suite that adds low-latency encryption, in-service fiber plant monitoring and security-hardened management capabilities.


The encryption capabilities address the threat posed by the development of more sophisticated fiber-tapping and intrusion technologies. The integrated FSP 3000 encryption solution offers physical layer encryption, which operates at wire speed and keeps latency at its lowest levels. ADVA Optical Networking's implementation utilizes Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption technology and uses the Diffie-Hellman algorithm for automatic key exchange, both of which provide the highest levels of security.


The FSP 3000 platform also gains integrated optical line monitoring capabilities, which provide real-time analysis of the power readings from the optical link. These capabilities help detect fiber breaks or bends and identify security issues such as illegal fiber taps that jeopardize the integrity of mission-critical data.


ADVA is also introducing a security-hardened software architecture to protect the network operator against malicious intrusion attempts that target the command-and-control function of the network element.


"Information increasingly defines the core of every business; to compromise data is to lose the trust of your customers," stated Christoph Glingener, ADVA Optical Networking's chief technology officer. "The new security features of our FSP 3000 platform provide private enterprises a solution to secure the transport of data between data centers, optimizing security and lowering costs. The solution also delivers key functionality that enables managed service providers to deliver premium service portfolios."http://www.advaoptical.com

  • ADVA's FSP 3000 is a multi-service metro and regional transport platform supporting optical access, backhaul and wavelength services. It is also used for 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.
