- Telstra Wholesale uses ADVA packet edge solution in highly resilient Ethernet service
- New service uses mobile technology to backup fiber connection and increase service availability
- Long-standing partnership key to continued service innovation
ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that Telstra Wholesale has deployed its FSP 150 packet edge device with LTE backup to deliver the new Ethernet Access – Mobile Backup service. Unique to the Australian market, the offering improves service availability and strengthens business continuity. With Layer 2 mobile backup capabilities, ADVA’s technology automatically switches traffic to Telstra Wholesale’s 4G mobile network if fiber connectivity fails. This helps to provide peace of mind for enterprise customers that no longer have the burden of configuring costly mobile backup and recovery systems. The new service is the latest stage in a long-standing partnership between ADVA and Telstra Wholesale, which has been key to advancing the reliability and resiliency of Ethernet services for Telstra Wholesale customers throughout Australia.
This truly unique service is integrated into the end user’s Ethernet Access fiber connection, which means there is no need for our Telstra Wholesale customers to build a complex bespoke backup solution.
