ADVA Optical Networking says that Masergy, a global provider of secure, virtualized network services, is using the FSP 150 to deliver Ethernet services to its global enterprise customers.

The FSP 150 and its Etherjack technology provide Masergy with service visibility and and end-to-end monitoring. Via a range of remote operations, administration, and maintenance (OAM) features, the FSP 150 enables Masergy to test its network and address issues before they affect services, ADVA asserts. These features enable Masergy to establish and enforce strict service-level agreements (SLAs).

“Delivering world class network services to enterprises requires access equipment that is highly reliable, flexible, and efficient,” said Terry Traina, vice president engineering at Masergy. “Our customers transport mission-critical information across our network 24x7, so we can’t risk their business or our reputation on Ethernet access devices that have limited capabilities or deliver inconsistent performance. Our clients often require multiple VPN services on the same circuit to maximize network efficacy, so flexibility is a critical component of our service offerings. That is why we use ADVA Optical Networking’s FSP 150 to provide these rigorous global Ethernet services. The FSP 150 allows Masergy to standardize on a single access device to expedite service delivery while ensuring that we meet the strictest of SLAs.”

The FSP150 monitors availability, latency, jitter and packet loss, says ADVA. These parameters are critical for verifying SLA conformance and providing an advanced indication of performance degradation before a service outage occurs, the company adds.
