ADVA's CloudConnect DCI Carries 2 X 200 Gbps Wavelengths over 385km Span

The Poznań Supercomputing and Networking Center (PSNC) has tested ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 CloudConnect platform to link two data centers at 400 Gbps.

The trial connected research and education centers in Poznań and Warsaw over a 385 km fiber span using the live commercial PIONIER network. PIONIER is a consortium of Polish research and education organizations and its network is operated domestically by PSNC. The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect was configured with two 200 Gbps wavelengths operating at 16QAM within an optical super-channel. The system also featured reconfigurable add/drop multiplexers (ROADMs) and hybrid amplifiers. The company said its DCI technology transported data continuously for 14 hours without any block errors.

“Our DCI technology is helping to redefine the market. It’s completely changed people’s expectations about what’s possible,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our 400 Gbps trial with PSNC is the latest example of this. It’s a landmark event for our FSP 3000 CloudConnect™. Transporting 400 Gbps over 385km at 16QAM and with no errors is a clear indication of how robust and reliable our technology is. In many respects, this is what stands our DCI solution apart. It’s true plug and play. There are very few companies in our industry that can make that statement and mean it. This trial is another clear illustration of why our DCI technology is proving so popular with customers.”


  • In June 2015, ADVA Optical Networking introduced its 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 .  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.
