MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany, Jan. 30 -- ADVA Optical Networking, a provider of optical networking solutions, has launched a new set of optical transceiver and amplifier modules for its fiber service platform (FSP) 3000 carrier-class metro infrastructure solution. These new modules deliver higher tolerance for impairment, greater dispersion load and higher gain, thereby extending the system's reach capability to 500 kilometers in metro regional networks without regeneration.
ADVA's FSP 3000, a metro system based on dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) technology, offers a low up-front investment with a "pay-as-you-grow" cost structure and a variety of interfaces, including local area network (LAN), storage area network (SAN), and
synchronous optical network (SONET)/synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH) services. The FSP 3000 also provides quick and easy provisioning, a variety of architectures, simple planning tools and robust operation. Carriers now have a strong and compelling alternative to the long haul systems traditionally deployed for metro regional applications with ADVA's FSP 3000, and can benefit to a greater extent from the system's unique value proposition.
The FSP 3000 employs parallel use of DWDM and time division multiplexing (TDM) technology to enable all protocols between 8 Mb/s and 10 Gb/s and up to 256 applications with a total capacity of 640 Gb/s to be transported over one single fiber pair. The system's design supports point-to-point, linear add/drop, ring and meshed network topologies of up to 10 nodes across distances up to 500 kilometers without regeneration. A Slimline chassis version was launched in early 2003 as a feeder solution to transport limited numbers of high-bandwidth applications.
The new FSP 3000 modules for metro regional network applications will be released this quarter.
