ADVA Supplies 100G Core in Washington State

The Northwest Open Access Network (NoaNet) has deployed ADVA Optical Networking's 100G Core technology throughout Washington state.

The deployment, which was partly supported by stimulus funding from the Broadband Technology Opportunities Program to provide services to unserved and underserved communities, reaches many rural areas of the state.

“We first started working with the team at ADVA Optical Networking almost 10 years ago. During this time our network has scaled from 10G to 40G and now 100G,” said Rob Kopp, CTO, NoaNet. “The key to this relationship is trust. Their team understands our network, our communities. They realize how important it is to bridge the digital divide and provide ubiquitous Internet access to all. Our network now extends over thousands of miles of fiber and what's key about ADVA Optical Networking's 100G technology is its reach. With this technology we are able to provide services to rural communities that rival or exceed what is available in metro areas.”
