ADVA Optical Networking Wins Prize for Best Energy Efficiency at SDN NFV World Congress
Network Transformation Awards Recognize ADVA FSP 3000 for Industry’s Lowest Power Consumption
... the platform is now approaching efficiency of 0.2W/Gbit/s – a value never before seen in optical transmission.
ADVA Optical Networking was presented with the accolade at the inaugural Network Transformation Awards, established to honor achievement in advancing the next generation of networks. The award demonstrates the critical role that the ADVA FSP 3000 has to play in reducing energy usage as global traffic grows. With its latest innovations, the platform is now approaching efficiency of 0.2W/Gbit/s – a value never before seen in optical transmission. This is due to improvements in several key areas, including advances in cooling methods, innovation in DC/DC voltage supply and optimization between modularity and monolithic integration. The solution's enhanced efficiency also facilitates an even more compact design so it now requires less floor space than ever before.
“We take sustainability extremely seriously. That’s why awards like this mean so much to everyone in the team. We’re all proud of what we’ve achieved with our FSP 3000. And it keeps on getting better. We’re now reaching levels of efficiency that not long ago were unimaginable,” commented Stephan Rettenberger SVP, marketing and investor relations, ADVA Optical Networking. “Fueled by the surge in mobility and mass migration to the cloud, global ICT emissions are rising steeply. Companies across the industry now recognize how urgently they need to limit future energy consumption and CO2 emissions. That's why so many are leveraging our FSP 3000. Sustainable optical networking is essential for the future of the planet. We’re proud to be at the forefront of that vital innovation.”
