SingTel Picks ADVA FSP 3000 WDM

Singapore Telecommunications (SingTel) has appointed ADVA Optical Networking as a vendor for its high-speed managed metropolitan optical network service known as GigaWaveLite (GWL).

SingTel's GigaWaveLite is a managed high-speed, point-to-point optical service for enterprise customers needing to connect two or more sites. It uses WDM to ensure that an enterprise's mission-critical data remains secure throughout transport at speeds of up to 10 Gbps. SingTel offers its GWL service to the banking, finance, healthcare, education, manufacturing and logistics industries, as well as to media content and other information technology solution providers.

ADVA's FSP 3000 supports a range of data center protocols, including multiple Fibre Channel line speeds, 10Gigabit Ethernet, FICON, ESCON and others, and has been qualified interoperable with most of the industry's major storage solution vendors.

  • In February 2010, 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.
