Optovia and ADVA Optical Team Up; ADVA Expands Product Reach with Optovia's Award-winning Optical Line Systems.

ACTON, Mass. -- Optovia(TM) Corporation, a leading optical line systems company providing solutions for telecommunications carriers, cable system operators, and corporate enterprises, today announced an OEM agreement with ADVA Optical Networking (OTC: ADVOF.PK), ( Under the agreement, ADVA will expand the reach of their Fiber Service Platform (FSP) 3000 scalable optical transport solution by integrating Optovia's award-winning Hut Skip(TM) and SpanExpress(TM) line system solutions. The combined offering will allow ADVA to offer service providers and large enterprises a flexible, cost-effective system delivering farther reach and significant total cost of ownership savings.

ADVA's FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for service providers and large enterprises that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications. Service providers today deploy the FSP 3000 to maximize the bandwidth and service flexibility of their access, metro core and regional networks, while supporting new revenue opportunities for high-speed Ethernet and managed SAN services.

Optovia's Hut-Skip Line System solution radically improves the economics of conventional optical networks by eliminating 50% of network line amplifier sites and their associated operational costs, delivering the lowest total cost of ownership of any optical line system on the market today. From carriers to cable companies to enterprise networks, the vast majority of network routes greater than 1000 kilometers in length in North America, Europe and Asia benefit greatly from the site elimination achieved with Optovia's Hut Skip solution. Similarly, in disaster recovery networks where today's storage area networking (SAN) protocols enable data centers and remote data sites to be spaced up to 200 kilometers apart, Optovia's SpanExpress Line System solution enables enterprises to locate secondary data centers farther away without the cost, complexity and risks associated with mid-span amplification. The Hut-Skip and SpanExpress Line Systems are both offered on Optovia's 300mm deep chassis with an open standard ATCA backplane.

Today's announced partnership between the two companies will capitalize on the convergence of DWDM transport with long-reach optical line systems to provide a focused business continuity solution for carriers, cable system operators, and enterprises. Current deployments have addressed the Fortune 100 enterprise market initially.

"Optovia's technology extends the reach of the FSP 3000 to over 1000 kilometers and also enables long-single-span networks for business continuity deployments," said Brian McCann, chief marketing and strategy officer at ADVA. "This allows our customers to use a single platform and management system for Enterprise, Access, Metro, and Regional applications, simplifying their networks and reducing their total cost of ownership."

"We are excited to be playing a key role in ADVA's execution of their business continuance vision," said Harmeet Singh, executive chairman at Optovia. "As enterprise interest in long reach and high capacity disaster recovery strategies intensifies, ADVA is enabling new business models that will drive higher performance across the industry value chain."
