ADVA LAUNCHES FSP 1000 PLATFORM FOR LAST MILE SERVICES.
The ADVA FSP 1000 is a time division multiplexing (TDM) system specifically designed for Metropolitan Area Service Providers who require flexible, cost-effective aggregation of up to eight (8) high-speed data, storage, video or voice applications onto a common 2.488 Gbit/s signal. The system is ideal for enterprise or service provider deployment at customer premise or central office sites, and can be used as a DWDM feeder, managed fiber access solution, or for SONET/SDH tail circuits.
The modular architecture of the FSP 1000 comprises a small, rack-mountable, NEBS/ETSI compliant chassis and up to eight (8) hot-swappable converter modules that can be selected to meet the application requirements. The individual modules support all protocols between the range of 34 Mbit/s and 1.25 Gbit/s, including FDDI, ATM, ESCON, Fast Ethernet, Gigabit Ethernet SX and LX, OC-3/-12, STM-1/-4, Fibre Channel, and FICON. The aggregated 2.488 Gbit/s signal is SONET/SDH-compatible and can be connected directly over a singlemode fiber pair or any selected 2.5 Gbit/s DWDM channel.
FSP 1000 is fully interoperable with other ADVA FSP hardware and network management solutions. It can be used as a managed DWDM feeder into ADVA's FSP 3000, a highly-scalable metro system for service provider networks which enables them to build a comprehensive managed Metro Optical Network. The software includes error rate analysis and forward error correction on the aggregate link to ensure the service levels are both monitored and maintained.
The FSP 1000 supports point-to-point and star topologies. Pricing for the system starts at $4,000 per application and customer field trials are scheduled to start in Q2 2001.
"ADVA's FSP 1000 small-form factor and industry-standard interfaces allow carriers to quickly and simply transport value-added data services from customer premises into the carrier network," stated Scott Clavenna, President at PointEast Research. "Its low entry price, efficient operating costs, and ability to optimise use of fiber bandwidth enable these last-mile services to be economically viable. The FSP 1000 is an important step towards alleviating the last-mile bottleneck created by the intense demand for end-to-end data services."
"We have been working together closely with our service provider customers to drive the market for cost-effective optical networking solutions," stated Brian P. McCann, chief sales & marketing officer at ADVA Optical Networking. "ADVA has become a leader in providing high-speed services between customer premise or central office facilities. Our new FSP 1000 platform provides us with a complete end-to-end solution for all high speed services from the business user to the metro core."
