ADVA unveils FSP 3000 OpenFabric1200 more metro network traffic grooming

Nov. 11, 2021
The newest member of the FSP 3000 OpenFabric Series is an open “switchponder” card that combines 400 Gbps pluggable coherent transport with OTN switching on a single blade.

ADVA (FSE: ADV) says it now offers the FSP 3000 OpenFabric1200. The newest member of the FSP 3000 OpenFabric Series is an open “switchponder” card that combines 400 Gbps pluggable coherent transport with OTN switching on a single blade. The blade is designed to support the grooming of lower-speed traffic into 400-Gbps wavelengths in metro network applications.

The ADVA FSP 3000 OpenFabric1200 has an interface capacity of 1.2 Tbps and will support Ethernet and OTN services from 10 Gbps to 400 Gbps. The blade can operate in as an ADM on a blade, a DWDM muxponder, or OTN cross-connect. The open design ensures client services can be connected directly or via standard OTN-based transponders without the need for adapters, ADVA adds.

“Our FSP 3000 OpenFabric1200™ will be a key tool in tackling skyrocketing bandwidth demand while supporting existing low-speed services. The technology takes our OpenFabric™ concept to the next level, enabling traffic grooming at the edge where it’s most efficient and delivering 1.2Tbit/s interface capacity. It offers the power to adapt to changing traffic demands without a hardware upgrade while simplifying operations and enabling network operators to scale as and when needed,” commented Cornelius Fürst, director, product line management, ADVA. “Our FSP 3000 OpenFabric1200™ is the flexible OTN solution that’s about to switch things up. For metro network operators, our new switchponder opens the door to the benefits of disaggregated environments and the latest pluggable coherent 400Gbit/s technology.”
