It dramatically simplifies operations, drives energy efficiency throughout the network and provides an abundance of new revenue opportunities.
WiTCOM operates a 500km network with eight nodes connected in a ring architecture. The newly installed ROADM system transforms the network into a meshed ring topology. Links between all sites can be configured instantly through adding and dropping wavelengths on multiple fibers. What’s more, the modular design of the ADVA FSP 3000 creates the flexible foundation that WiTCOM needs. To ensure the solution worked perfectly from the start, the equipment was first tested in dacoso’s laboratories in Langen, Germany. Operators were also trained in how to utilize the embedded multi-layer GMPLS Control Plane, RAYcontrol™. The combination of ADVA Optical Networking’s hardware and software results in true network automation, dynamic routing and self-learning. It dramatically simplifies operations, drives energy efficiency throughout the network and provides an abundance of new revenue opportunities.
“WiTCOM is a company that continually strives to give their customers every advantage,” commented Josef Sissmeier, sales director, Central Europe, ADVA Optical Networking. “Right now, delivering optimum service means harnessing the power of ROADMs. We’re proud to put WiTCOM in full control of their network infrastructure. This empowers them to deliver increasingly innovative services, to address every customer’s needs and develop more business opportunities. WiTCOM is a great example of how regional carriers can leverage the performance, flexibility and simplicity of our FSP 3000. We’re very excited to be contributing to their success in maximizing their network’s efficiency and potential. We’ve provided them with the tools and the technology. Now they’re ready to take the next step in their journey. They can look to the future, a future where agile, intelligent and responsive data transport is available for more and more users.”
“Together with ADVA Optical Networking, we’ve safeguarded the future connectivity of WiTCOM’s customers,” said Martin Stengel, CTO, dacoso. “Building on what was already a successful three-way partnership, we were able to remove the rigid nature of WiTCOM’s network and supply them with a versatile, efficient and scalable solution. We’re always eager to join forces with ADVA Optical Networking. And this relationship is set to go further as WiTCOM plan to enhance their network with ADVA Optical Networking’s ConnectGuard™ encryption solution.”
