ADVA Optical Networking Acquires Engineering Division from Technology Incubator
New Team Members to Play Strategic Role in Developing Optical Monitoring Solutions
In 2016, our FSP 3000 ALM will be a product to watch. I can’t wait to see what our new team achieves.
ADVA Optical Networking’s FSP 3000 ALM was introduced as a direct response to service providers’ requests for more insight into their fiber access networks. Previously, this was only possible with very large and expensive optical monitoring equipment. By contrast, the ADVA FSP 3000 ALM is a small, non-intrusive device that operates independently of data networking equipment. This separation of fiber monitoring from services and applications enables the ADVA FSP 3000 ALM to monitor fiber access networks regardless of the bitrate and protocol the overlaying service is using. The ADVA FSP 3000 ALM gives service providers up-to-the-second knowledge of their fiber plant and an understanding of where and what action may need to be taken to ensure continued service availability.
“We’re a company focused on developing the next generation of innovators – people who are going to help drive technology to new heights. It’s our business and our passion,” commented, Claus-Georg Müller, CEO, mic AG. “In many respects, ADVA Optical Networking is a kindred spirit. They understand how important it is to nurture talent; how important it is to invest in people and technology. They’ve seen on many occasions what happens when you do this. The ADVA FSP 3000 ALM is one clear example. With this acquisition, ADVA Optical Networking will gain an incredible team of engineers; people who have a deep understanding of optical monitoring equipment and will be able to rapidly propel the ADVA FSP 3000 ALM forward. I’m proud of each member of this team and can’t wait to follow their next steps.”
