ADVA Optical Networking Removes Risk of NFV Migration With New One Network Edge Device
ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4) Uses Pluggable Server for Simple and Cost-Effective Virtualization
For so many customers, the latest addition to our One Network Edge family is the missing piece of the puzzle.
The ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4) is a multi-technology solution for multi-layer business service demarcation and VNF hosting. It combines virtual and physical network functions for low-latency forwarding and significantly enhanced performance. Hardware-assisted support functions, such as tunneling technologies and service assurance, free up compute resources for revenue-generating services, enabling CSPs to offer a wide range of demanding applications far more efficiently. Unique VNF monitoring functions are implemented in hardware for server-independent service assurance, providing essential information for managing and optimizing the NFV infrastructure. These features are a key differentiator for the ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe series and were recently confirmed in independent EANTC tests.
“What we bring to bear here is our real-world experience of helping CSPs to simply and efficiently virtualize service delivery. With our pluggable server, we’ve completed the virtualization business case. For so many customers, the latest addition to our One Network Edge family is the missing piece of the puzzle,” said Ulrich Kohn, director, technical marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. “We’ve focused on VNF service assurance and implemented unique hardware-based support functions. With our integrated carrier-grade server, we’re giving CSPs an NFV roadmap with no risks, no unknowns and no unnecessary costs. What’s more, our new, pluggable FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4) will help significantly with server lifecycle management. It makes the process of upgrading simple and efficient so new technology can be deployed as soon as it’s developed.”
