ADVA adds time-sensitive networking to FSP 150-XG418

Nov. 10, 2022
The MEF 3.0-certified ADVA FSP 150-XG418 is a multi-layer 100-Gbps demarcation device that now features express forwarding for ultra-low latency transport.

ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it has added time-sensitive networking (TSN) capabilities to its FSP 150-XG418 high-speed packet edge device. The MEF 3.0-certified ADVA FSP 150-XG418 is a multi-layer 100-Gbps demarcation device that now features express forwarding for ultra-low latency transport. The company says the new functionality will help operators speed their 5G rollouts.

The company envisions network operators using the FSP 150-XG418 to mix fronthaul and backhaul traffic without the need for a dedicated gateway for the transport of Ethernet CPRI or eCPRI services. The demarcation device also supports SyncE and G.8275.1 PTP Telecom Profile timing. The system is standards-compliant to ensure interoperability within multi-vendor networks.

“Low latency is crucial for many emerging use cases, from industrial IoT to metaverse applications to AI-powered autonomous driving systems. Our FSP 150-XG418 enables operators to achieve ultra-low values even in highly congested operations at the network edge. Its TSN forwarding features ensure extremely low latency end-to-end, supporting eCPRI connectivity and delivering the performance needed for 5G fronthaul,” commented Mike Heffner, general manager of edge cloud at ADVA. “What’s more, our FSP 150-XG418 offers a major efficiency boost. Now that operators can use the same device for eCPRI and fronthaul traffic, that’s one fewer box in the system.”
