ADVA Intros "CloudConnect" Data Center Interconnect Solution

ADVA Optical Networking introduced a new Data Center Interconnect (DCI) solution designed for Internet Content Providers (ICPs) and Cloud Service Providers (CSPs).

The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect, which is available in multiple chassis configurations including four rack units (4RUs), features a 400 Gbps single line card. It can transport up to 25.6 Tbps  duplex capacity per fiber pair from a single rack, delivering 51.2 Tbps of total throughput at 1.4 Tbps per rack unit. It includes amplifiers, multiplexers and all other necessary components.a

ADVA said its FSP 3000 CloudConnect has been specifically engineered to scale and there’s no client port lock-in. As new Ethernet data rates emerge, they can be supported by plugging new line cards into the entire range of chassis. Instead of an active backplane, the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect features a modular design that eliminates unnecessary electrical processing. The system offers auto discovery and provisioning of the optical layer. It also supports a range of customizable APIs for programmability, including CLI, REST, NETCONF, and RESTCONF. For advanced virtualized and multi-tenant networks, a network hypervisor with fully open Northbound interfaces is available to abstract the DCI transport network so that end-to-end optimization of multi-layer packet flows is possible.

“The DCI market is experiencing one of the most fundamental shifts in its history. The phenomenal success of ICPs and CSPs, along with the continued adoption of cloud-based services, means that DCI networks are struggling to transport enormous amounts of data,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “Such a fundamental shift in demand requires a fundamental shift in technology. This is the genesis of our new FSP 3000 CloudConnect. It’s something truly unique within the industry. We worked closely with the key players here to build exactly what was required. Our 4RU chassis is a clear example of this. Everyone we spoke to said they needed a chassis that isn’t too large and isn’t too small – the 4RU is the sweet spot for the DCI market. ”
