ADVA Optical Networking has announced a pair of system deployments by Neo Telecoms in the latter’s Paris network. The metropolitan fiber-optic network services and international hosting and IP services provider is using the ADVA FSP 150 to offer Internet Protocol to the Building (IPTB) services to business customers in the city, and the ADVA FSP 3000 to connect its Paris network with a new data center located in Besançon.

Neo Telecoms’ IPTB offering provides fiber-based Internet-access services from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps directly to business sites. The service provider will use the ADVA FSP 150 as the engine to deliver this service in a manner that helps ensure that service-level agreements (SLAs) are met.

“Our IPTB service gives us an innovative and differentiated offering in the very competitive Paris business-services market,” said Didier Soucheyre, president and founder of Neo Telecoms. “The combination of our extensive network of dark fiber throughout Paris and ADVA Optical Networking’s technology allows us to capitalize on it by confidently offering a dependable service. The ADVA FSP 150’s intelligent Ethernet service demarcation capability eliminates blinds spots from our IPTB offering by providing visibility, monitoring, and assurance at the critical handoff point to a customer’s network.”

Meanwhile, the new data center connection via the FSP 3000 will enable Neo Telecoms to target customers in previously underserved French markets. The connection will feature 40 channels of 10 Gbps across a 560-km link.

“Over 80% of all French data centers are currently based in Paris and that leaves many areas of France with insufficient capacity for proximity hosting, IP transit, network connectivity, cloud, storage, and other high-demand business services,” explained Soucheyre. “The opening of new regional data centers is critical to reaching new business customers in parts of France that have been historically underserved. The ADVA FSP 3000 is key to helping us achieve this goal. It provides us with the optical networking scalability to successfully fill that market void.”
