ADVA Optical Networking Introduces One Network Edge
ADVA FSP 150 Product Family Provides Customers With Industry’s Most Comprehensive Range of Edge Functions and Devices
With edge devices to suit every edge application, service providers now have one clear choice to simplify their product inventory while scaling to meet new business opportunities.
ADVA Optical Networking is introducing One Network Edge at a significant point in the development of the network. The growing interest in network functions virtualization, the demand for improved security, the need for synchronization and an increasingly challenging demarcation space, are all placing significant strains on services providers. To successfully address each of these areas, service providers need to manage a complex mix of heterogeneous equipment from multiple vendors. The capital and operating costs here are enormous. One Network Edge immediately simplifies this situation. With edge devices to suit every edge application, service providers now have one clear choice to simplify their product inventory while scaling to meet new business opportunities. Using the rock-solid foundation of the ADVA FSP 150 product family, One Network Edge presents the industry with a new benchmark for edge simplicity, scale and comprehensiveness.
“When we talk to service providers, there’s always one issue, one frustration – the network edge is too fragmented, too complex; it’s limiting their ability to meet customer demands and new business opportunities. This is the genesis of One Network Edge,” commented Stephan Rettenberger, VP, marketing and investor relations, ADVA Optical Networking. “Ultimately, One Network Edge is the next step of the journey for our FSP 150 product family. It’s the evolution of a technology that has continually garnered industry praise and topped analysts’ charts of Ethernet access devices (EADs). Our FSP 150 has the highest installed base of any EAD in the industry. We’ve taken all of this experience, all of this knowledge and created something game changing. One Network Edge offers customers something unique in the industry, something that will help them to take their next steps. It’s all about building one network together.”
