PSNC Deploys ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ to Drive 400G Connectivity in Research and Education Network
ADVA Optical Networking’s Transmission Technology Boosts Capacity Over 385km DCI Network
Designed for scalability and bandwidth optimization, the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ platform offers unrivalled efficiency.
Built on the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™, the new infrastructure utilizes the company’s QuadFlex™ technology to transport 400Gbit/s over 385km without the need for signal regeneration. To achieve this channel capacity, it is configured with two 200Gbit/s wavelengths operating at 16QAM within an optical super-channel. Designed for scalability and bandwidth optimization, the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ platform offers unrivalled efficiency. It delivers huge energy savings and, with its incredibly small footprint, consumes less rack space than competing technology. The ultra-high-capacity link is a key section of the PIONIER network, which is operated domestically by PSNC. PIONIER is a consortium of Polish research and education organizations, including universities, scientific institutions and super-computing centers.
“Our FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ solution is ideal for delivering 400Gbit/s bandwidth in research and education networks. Developed to meet the most stringent density, security and energy demands, our DCI technology is uniquely positioned to help PSNC cope with exponential growth in data demand,” commented Ardashes Garabedian, senior sales manager, Eastern Europe and CIS, ADVA Optical Networking. “But as well as innovation, what was crucial here was the extensive experience of our engineers when it comes to creating optical transport solutions that our customers can rely on. PSNC has always been at the forefront of research and education networking globally. We helped it create one of Europe’s first national academic networks to be built on its own dark fiber. PSNC was quick to harness 100Gbit/s connectivity. Now it’s leading the way by enabling 400Gbit/s connectivity for vital, data-intensive research.”
