With ADVA as our technology partner, we can roll out high-capacity Layer 2 services with total flexibility and bring intelligence and automation to the edge of our enterprise network,” said Harsha Ram, vice president, telecom services, at Sify. ”The ADVA FSP 150 delivers new levels of agility for service innovation. It empowers us to provide the ideal solution for the budget, strategy and technical needs of each and every customer. What’s more, with ADVA’s technology, we can put IP traffic control at the end user’s fingertips.
