ADVA Adds G.8032v2 for Carrier Ethernet Ring Protection

ADVA Optical Networking has added Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) to its
FSP 150 family, enabling business Ethernet and mobile backhaul service providers to aggregate subrate Gigabit Ethernet services onto Gigabit or even 10 Gigabit Ethernet protected rings using a drop-and-continue architecture.

ERPS, also known as G.8032v2,  is an ITU-T standard that provides sub 50 millisecond protection and recovery switching, ensuring highest reliability for ring-based Carrier Ethernet infrastructures.
