ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it has begun supply of its FSP 150-GO102Pro Series to Openreach, BT Group’s infrastructure subsidiary. Openreach is using the demarcation units as part of an infrastructure that will enable mobile network operators (MNOs) to roll out small cell services throughout the UK.
Openreach is deploying the MEF 3.0-certified ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro demarcation devices in “street furniture access points” to support its Street Access service. The units will support Openreach’s 1-Gbps Carrier Ethernet and IP services as well as delivery of the phase synchronization necessary for 5G mobile connectivity.
“The ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro is a key tool in our drive to address urgent small cell challenges. Its design and feature set enable us to roll out the highly efficient mobile backhaul architecture we need to support our 1-Gbps Street Access product as well as LTE Advanced and 5G services,” said Mark Logan, product director, Openreach. “The ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro requires no expensive air conditioning system. It also has an extremely compact form factor coupled with a design ruggedized to withstand harsh conditions, making it ideal for deployment in lampposts and street cabinets. And, despite being the smallest network terminating equipment solution on the market, the ADVA FSP 150-GO102Pro provides true carrier-class capabilities including automated testing, in-service monitoring, and full phase sync support.”
