ADVA Optical Networking Achieves NFV First With FSP 150 ProVM
New Product Delivers Unique Service Assurance for NFV-Based Applications
Our team has crafted an edge NFV device that is unlike anything on the market.
To ensure that service providers are able to fully leverage the potential of NFV, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM is a completely open solution. It includes standardized interfaces based on OpenFlow, OpenStack and Netconf/YANG. The close integration of control and management systems with the underlying hardware creates strong synergies between physical and virtual network functions, resulting in optimum performance. To mitigate the security risks of migrating to open-source software and standard network components, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM includes ADVA ConnectGuard™. This technology provides a key mix of features that ensure network security and data protection. These features include robust encryption, tamper resistance and network isolation with access control lists. What’s more, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM also includes the company’s unique Syncjack™ time distribution and assurance technology, a compelling feature for virtualization in the radio access network.
“We’ve worked closely with a number of leading service providers to develop our FSP 150 ProVM. This tight collaboration with fixed and mobile operators has resulted in an essential solution – one that meets all specific functional and operational network requirements,” commented Stephan Rettenberger, VP, marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our team has crafted an edge NFV device that is unlike anything on the market. It builds on our Etherjack™ technology to create service demarcation for the virtualized world. And by combining this directly with an internal server that hosts VNFs, you have a synergy of hardware and software that delivers unparalleled results. This unique combination will prove imperative for service providers as they rapidly respond to a wealth of new business opportunities.”
The capabilities of the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM will be displayed in a joint demonstration with BT and Alchera Technologies at the SDN & OpenFlow World Congress from October 12 until October 16.
