Lonestar Education and Research Network (LEARN) has deployed ADVA Optical Networking's FSP 3000 DWDM platform to extend its metro solutions in Dallas, San Antonio and Houston, Texas, and has named the FSP 3000 as its platform-of-choice for future network expansion. LEARN is a consortium of K-12, colleges, universities, research, healthcare and public-service institutions in the state of Texas.

"ADVA Optical Networking has a proud tradition of supporting the research-and-education community," stated Stephan Rettenberger, vice president of marketing at ADVA Optical Networking.

With the decision to deploy the R7 version of the FSP 3000, LEARN can support the ongoing drive for bandwidth from its future-focused member base."
