May 20, 2010 -- IVV GmbH, an IT services provider to Germany’s public insurance carriers, is using the FSP 3000 platform from ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) to connect its data centers, the systems house says.

The service provider decided on the ADVA Optical Networking technology as it began preparations to deploy a new data center. IVV selected the FSP 3000 because it offered a future-proof approach, could be easily installed and commissioned, and easily supports a variety of data center transmission protocols, ADVA asserts.

IVV decided to buy new equipment as it began relocation of one of its data centers. The company delivers IT services to its customers via a redundant data center configuration. In the event that one of these locations experiences an outage, the second can take on the entire workload, ensuring that user services remain up. This capability calls for fast, secure, and highly available data links between the two locations.

Regional network carrier htp, which provides telecommunication services to the commercial triangle around Hanover, Braunschweig, and Hildesheim, assisted with the conceptual design of the data center connectivity architecture. It was htp that recommended ADVA Optical Networking’s FSP 3000 to IVV.

Because of the FSP 3000’s support of multiple protocols, IVV needed just two types of cards to handle the all of its traffic and can now therefore react more flexibly to change, ADVA says.

“We selected ADVA Optical Networking because an exceptionally reliable network is critical to our ability to deliver our service portfolio,” said Peter Gieseke of IVV. “We are an IT services provider specializing in business-critical applications, and our customers rely on us to consistently provide reliable, high-availability services. With the FSP 3000 serving as the foundation of our network, we’re better equipped to accomplish this than ever before. In addition, the solution from ADVA Optical Networking represented the most future-proof option.”
