Mar. 7, 2001--ADVA Optical Networking, a global provider of optical networking solutions, announced the launch of the FSP 1000, a new optical access feeder system joining the company's Fiber Service Platform (FSP) portfolio.

ADVA Optical Networking (German Neuer Markt: ADV), a global provider of optical networking solutions, announced the launch of the FSP 1000, a new optical access feeder system joining the company's Fiber Service Platform (FSP) portfolio.

The ADVA FSP 1000 is a time division multiplexing (TDM) system specifically designed for Metropolitan Area Service Providers who require flexible, cost-effective aggregation of up to eight (8) high-speed data, storage, video or voice applications on to a common 2.488 Gbit/s signal. The system is ideal for enterprise or service provider deployment at customer premise or central office sites, and can be used as a DWDM feeder, managed fiber access solution, or for SONET/SDH tail circuits.

The modular architecture of the FSP 1000 comprises a small, rack-mountable, NEBS/ETSI compliant chassis and up to eight (8) hot-swappable converter modules that can be selected to meet the application requirements. The individual modules support all protocols between the range of 34 Mbit/s and 1.25 Gbit/s, including FDDI, ATM, ESCON, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet SX and LX, OC-3/-12, STM-1/-4, Fibre Channel, and FICON. The aggregated 2.488 Gbit/s signal is SONET/SDH-compatible and can be connected directly over a singlemode fiber pair or any selected 2.5 Gbit/s DWDM channel.

FSP 1000 is fully interoperable with other ADVA FSP hardware and network management solutions. It can be used as a managed DWDM feeder into ADVA's FSP 3000, a highly-scalable metro system for service provider networks which enables them to build a comprehensive managed Metro Optical Network. The software includes error rate analysis and forward error correction on the aggregate link to ensure the service levels are both monitored and maintained.

The FSP 1000 supports point-to-point and star topologies. Pricing for the system starts at $4,000 per application and customer field trials are scheduled to start in Q2 2001.

ADVA Optical Networking will be at OFC, booth 236 from March 18-22 in Anaheim, CA, USA. In addition, ADVA Optical Networking will be at CEBIT 2001, booth F058 in Hall 17, from March 22-28 in Hannover, Germany.
