ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) said that it has supplied its FSP 3000 CloudConnect data center interconnect platform to Previder, a Dutch-owned colocation and cloud services provider, to address increasing enterprise cloud service demand. The deployment, which includes ADVA's OpenFabric cross-connect technology, comes as Previder upgrades its open, multiprotocol network to 100 Gbps.
Based in the Netherlands and Germany, Previder is the largest Dutch-owned data center company in the Netherlands. It is part of the Odin Group, a technology holding with four IT companies, and delivers an array of cloud services and end-user connectivity to government and healthcare organizations, and large and mid-sized companies.
The provider will use its new 400-km ring network to deliver 100GbE and 16G Fibre Channel services to its enterprise customers. The ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect platforms used in the upgrade feature ADVA's FSP 3000 QuadFlex line card capabilities, allowing a single chassis to support multi-terabit transmissions across long distances with no signal regeneration necessary, says the company. Additionally, Previder is using FSP 3000 OpenFabric, which is part of ADVA's 2017 upgrades to the FSP 3000 platform (see "ADVA Optical Networking revamps FSP 3000 for metro networks").
"Deploying ADVA's next-generation DCI technology is key to growing our cloud enterprise services. With its flexibility, high-capacity and multi-protocol support, this new solution is also central to our business continuity and disaster recovery service strategy," said Tim Timmerman, CEO, Previder. "After extensive comparisons with other vendors and thorough PoCs [proof of concepts] conducted with TrueCom and ADVA, it was the small footprint and energy efficiency of the FSP 3000 CloudConnect that set it out from the crowd.
"Interoperability was also crucial," Timmerman continued. "This solution ensured a seamless transition, protecting the value of our previous investment and enabling all elements to be controlled by a single management system. What's more, our network is now scalable and ready to expand with our customers' needs."
ADVA recently has also supplied its FSP 3000 CloudConnect data center interconnect platform to Telehouse America/New York International Internet Exchange (NYIIX) to meet growing data needs in its metro network, and to the New York State Education and Research Network (NYSERNet) for deployment in a statewide fiber network that can support native and alien wavelengths of 200 Gbps (see "ADVA supplies FSP 3000 CloudConnect to Telehouse for metro network data needs" and "NYSERNet chooses ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect for New York R&E fiber network").
