February 19, 2003--ADVA Optical Networking announced that Inrange Technologies Corp., a provider of enterprise connectivity and storage networking solutions, has qualified ADVA's Fiber Service Platform (FSP) systems with INRANGE's complete line of IN-VSN FC/9000 Fibre Channel Directors in INRANGE's Interoperability Initiative (I3) Lab, based in Lumberton, NJ.

Based upon a mutually agreed test plan, new FSP features including 2:1 TDM functionality and 2-Gigabit Fibre Channel cards were qualified with the 64-, 128-, and 256-port models of the FC/9000. Given the increasing deployment of storage solutions by carriers and enterprises worldwide, this comprehensive interoperability testing provides customers with assurance for transportation of their mission-critical applications.

ADVA's FSP systems employ parallel use of coarse and dense WDM and TDM technology to enable up to 256 applications to be transported over a single fiber pair.

INRANGE and ADVA have partnered since 1995 to provide interoperable equipment that enables customers to benefit from secure, reliable data access across the network. As an OEM partner, INRANGE sells and supports the FSP products under the IN-VSN Spectrum label.
