ADVA Optical Networking (FSE: ADV) said that St. John's University has deployed its 100-Gbps core technology, which is built on the ADVA FSP 3000 AccessConnect platform, in a scalable and ultra-efficient transport network. The technology connects all buildings within the university's New York campus across an existing fiber network infrastructure.
The completely redundant fiber-optic ring network delivers the reliable connectivity that is needed for a data-focused teaching and learning environment, along with power efficiency and a minimal footprint, says ADVA. New York City-based communication provider and ADVA partner Techgardens helped with the new system's design.
"Meeting the soaring data demand of students and departments has become a major challenge for today's universities. What they want is transport technology that maximizes space and power while also enabling an easy route to further expansion. Working closely with the teams at ADVA and St. John's University, we've been able to create a solution that precisely answers this need," said Jim Sanveren, Techgardens CEO. "Based on the ADVA FSP 3000 AccessConnect, this network is a shrewd investment by St. John's University. As edge networks continue to become faster and video communications more prevalent, this jump in technology enables them to satisfy demand and push the boundaries of possibility even further."
ADVA has delivered its FSP 3000 technology to other educational institutions recently, including the New York State Education and Research Network (NYSERNet; see "NYSERNet chooses ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect for New York R&E fiber network").
