ADVA Optical Networking Demonstrates Industry-First 32G Fibre Channel Transmission Over 100km
Field Trial Uses Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel Technology and ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™
Together with Brocade, we’re answering the tremendous growth in data demand and enabling enterprises to maximize the performance of flash-enhanced data storage.
The pairing of Brocade’s newly introduced Gen 6 Fibre Channel technology and the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ offers the highest levels of performance, availability and scalability. The transmission of 32Gbit/s Fibre Channel over 100km represents a critical breakthrough in business continuity and disaster recovery planning. As companies evolve towards the new low-cost, high-performance storage model, they require networks that deliver low-latency, high-capacity bandwidth together with maximum reliability. This demonstration of 32Gbit/s Fibre Channel connectivity shows that networks can now maximize the performance of flash array technology.
“Our demo proves the power of Brocade Gen 6 Fibre Channel technology when combined with our DCI transport solution. Together, we’re answering the tremendous growth in data demand and enabling enterprises to maximize the performance of flash-enhanced data storage,” commented Uli Schlegel, PLM director, ADVA Optical Networking. “By collaborating closely with Brocade, we’ve been able to meet customers’ mission-critical needs and helped define data center infrastructure for over two decades. Today’s DCI applications require phenomenal speed, but they also need new levels of efficiency, flexibility and availability. Built directly with the industry to address all pain points, our FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ delivers in every key area.”
