SANReN selects ADVA FSP 3000 with ALM fiber monitoring solution
Flexible, energy-efficient, high-bandwidth technology brings hyperscale capacity to South African research and education network
SANReN chose our technology because of the advantages it offers in terms of capacity, energy efficiency and density of design.
“SANReN chose our technology because of the advantages it offers in terms of capacity, energy efficiency and density of design. Fast, reliable connectivity is an essential tool for today’s R&E institutions. Together with our partner NEC XON, we’re helping to give academics and scientists throughout South Africa access to high-bandwidth applications and enhanced data sharing, creating invaluable opportunities for research teams,” said Günter Landers, sales director, Africa, ADVA. “We’ve created a solution that meets all of SANReN’s demands. Our network management solution greatly simplifies the provisioning, monitoring and reporting of network operations and our ALM fiber assurance technology will be key to providing always-on availability.“
“By working closely with SANReN and the ADVA team, we’re ensuring that every aspect of this deployment is smooth and straightforward. Our dedicated local team will also provide ongoing support to make sure South Africa’s R&E centers receive the full value of the new technology,” said Ross Templeton, GM, networking, NEC XON. “What makes this project special is that it’s an ecologically sound solution. The small footprint and low energy consumption of the ADVA FSP 3000 coupled with the in-service monitoring of the ADVA ALM ensures that SANReN’s increased capacity goes hand in hand with improved sustainability. By reducing truck rolls and tackling carbon footprint, we’re helping to create value both now and in the future.”
