PSNC Deploys ADVA Optical Networking 96-Channel 100G Core Solution in Pan-European Research Network
ADVA FSP 3000 With ROADM Technology Connects Polish Supercomputing Center to CERN
We’ve created a reliable, dynamic and ultra-fast network that will enable many of the world’s most innovative research teams to realize their technological ambitions.
The new fully redundant GMPLS-based network connects Polish supercomputing centers in Poznań, Gdansk, Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. It features 96 channels and has a reach of more than 3,466km without signal regeneration. As well as ADVA FSP 3000 core transport technology, the solution utilizes ADVA Optical Networking’s colorless, directionless and flexgrid multi-degree ROADMs. These create remote cross-connections on the optical layer to boost availability and simplify operations. PIONIER was one of the first national academic networks in Europe to leverage its own 10Gbit/s dark fiber network. Now, all links in the meshed infrastructure can transport 100Gbit/s and the modular design of the ADVA FSP 3000 means the network is ready to scale to 400Gbit/s and beyond in the future.
“Our technology is helping to propel international collaboration and scientific exploration. By working closely with PSNC and our partner ALMA SA, we’ve created a reliable, dynamic and ultra-fast network that will enable many of the world’s most innovative research teams to realize their technological ambitions,” commented Ardashes Garabedian, senior sales manager, Eastern Europe and CIS, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our FSP 3000 combines agile core transport functionality with massive scalability and superb ease of use. It will be a vital tool in some of the world’s most advanced research projects. Also key are our directionless, colorless and gridless ROADMs, which will give researchers the power to quickly and easily set up new services, providing even more freedom for exploration and discovery.”
