ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it has supplied its ADVA FSP 3000 open line system (OLS) with ConnectGuard Optical encryption to conova communications. The Austrian IT service provider is using the equipment for high-capacity, secure data center interconnect.
conova has implemented a fully redundant data center interconnect infrastructure to support delivery of cloud services, including 100-Gbps Carrier Ethernet and 32G Gen 6 Fibre Channel offerings. Designed and implemented by ADVA Elite partner dacoso, the fiber-optic connections also leverage ADVA ALM fiber assurance technology to improve network reliability.
“In recent years, we’ve grown rapidly as our customers’ businesses have expanded. ADVA’s technology enables us to meet new levels of demand for high-security, high-availability cloud and storage services in a way that also supports further growth in the future. With the ability to transport the most advanced low-latency 32-Gbps Fibre Channel services, our new network also empowers us to realize the full value of our state-of-the-art data centers,” said Stefan Kaltenbrunner, CSO, conova. “Our new fully redundant network is key to our mission of delivering the optimal IT infrastructure for every business. It helps us provide our customers with fast access to their mission-critical data around the clock as well as the peace of mind that comes from knowing that it’s safe and secure.”
