BT's Openreach Uses ADVA FSP 150 for 10G EAD Service

BT's Openreach infrastructure division has deployed the ADVA FSP 150CC-XG210 as the foundation of its new, point-to-point 10 Gbps Ethernet Access Direct (EAD) service.

The new service is expected to cost a little more than twice the price of the current 1 Gbps service.

ADVA said its FSP 150 delivers strict service level assurance for carrier and enterprise applications through its extensive quality of service management.

“EAD 10G is going to bring substantial benefits to a great number of UK enterprises and we’re proud to have played such a big part in helping Openreach take this exciting leap forward,” said Sarah Mendham, sales director, ADVA Optical Networking.
