Internet Exchange Operator Takes Peering in the Nordics to the Next Level With ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™
Built on dynamically operating ROADMs for fully automated control, the directionless optical transport system provides an unparalleled degree of flexibility.
The new 96-channel infrastructure features ADVA Optical Networking’s open optical layer enhanced with FSP 3000 QuadFlex™ 400Gbit/s capabilities. This creates an enormous increase in capacity through two 200Gbit/s wavelengths operating at 16QAM within an optical super-channel. Built on dynamically operating ROADMs for fully automated control, the directionless optical transport system provides an unparalleled degree of flexibility. This enables Netnod’s customers to choose to interconnect across its optical, physical or data link network layer. It also provides the freedom to select single ports or fully redundant options. What’s more, with ADVA Optical Networking’s multi-degree ROADM technology and FSP Network Hypervisor, Netnod has a complete foundation for software-defined networking.
