ADVA offers FSP 150-XG400 Series compact MEF 3.0 100G edge demarcation and aggregation platforms

Feb. 18, 2020
The company asserts the platforms are the most compact available to businesses and mobile network operators (MNOs), as well as the only to offer uncompromised line-rate 100-Gbps activation testing.

ADVA (FSE: ADV) has unveiled the ADVA FSP 150-XG400 Series of demarcation and aggregation platforms for the delivery of MEF 3.0-certified 100-Gbps services to the network edge. The company asserts the platforms are the most compact available to businesses and mobile network operators (MNOs), as well as the only to offer uncompromised line-rate 100-Gbps activation testing.

Available in a 1RU or 2RU form factors, the FSP 150-XG400 Series features platforms with 1, 10, 25, 40, or 100 Gigbit Ethernet interfaces. They benefit from carrier-class Ethernet OAM and Y.1564 feature sets, including the aforementioned full line-speed activation testing for services up to 100 Gbps. The platforms support network overlay capabilities for the delivery of MEF services over IP networks and provide standard SDN interfaces for direct control from open source and commercial SDN controllers.

“Our newest product family removes all the roadblocks and makes the task of transforming metro networks simple. With our FSP 150-XG400 Series delivering high-density demarcation and aggregation, businesses can expand and embrace the potential of IoT, and operators can deliver the next level of resilient SLA-based Carrier Ethernet services,” commented James Buchanan, GM, Edge Cloud, ADVA.

For mobile network applications such as radio access networks, the environmentally hardened platforms also support hardware-based timing for precise frequency and phase synchronization.

“The arrival of 5G is bringing unprecedented data speeds, but mobile applications can only be as fast as the backhaul network. That’s why MNOs are now looking to upgrade their access infrastructure from 10-Gbps to 100-Gbps line rates. Our FSP 150-XG400 Series supports a smooth and extremely cost-effective migration to higher capacity while also enabling the distribution of precise network synchronization that next-generation services require,” said Stephan Rettenberger, senior vice president, marketing and investor relations, at ADVA.
