Adtran offers FSP 3000 open line system for coherent optical edge networks

May 25, 2023
The OLS is designed to leverage coherent 100ZR and 400ZR pluggable optics to support linear, hub-and-spoke, and tree architectures in edge networking applications.

Adtran has unveiled the FSP 3000 Edge OLS, an open line system (OLS) aimed at coherent edge access, aggregation, and metro networks. The OLS is designed to leverage coherent 100ZR and 400ZR pluggable optics to support linear, hub-and-spoke, and tree architectures in edge networking applications.

The company asserts the FSP 3000 Edge OLS is designed to enable operators to deploy coherent at the edge in a flexible and cost-efficient manner. The small, low-power nodes are engineered to operate at the extended temperature ranges expected in outdoor environments, such as street cabinets. Such nodes can be as small as 1RU, expandable to 12RU.

“Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS offers a major boost to operators looking for an affordable way to tackle relentless growth in data traffic. Low-cost yet highly flexible, it can scale to transparently accommodate any line speed or baud rate. Now there’s a clear route to deploying an optical layer that leverages coherent transport technology, including 100ZR and 400ZR optics, and meets the stringent requirements of the new optical edge,” commented Henning Hinderthür, vice president of product line management, optical networks at Adtran. “Our FSP 3000 Edge OLS harnesses advanced wavelength broadcast technology for new levels of power and cost efficiency. It’s also ready to be deployed anywhere from central offices to street furniture.”
