MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Orpic (Oman Oil Refineries and Petroleum Industries Company) has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 to connect its regional data centers. Stretching across 280km of fiber, Orpic's network will use the ADVA FSP 3000 to transport and protect mission-critical data. Featuring the latest encryption and low latency technology, the ADVA FSP 3000 has been specifically configured to provide the most secure and fastest data transport possible. The network was installed and will be maintained by systems integrator HTC (Hussam Technology Company), a new channel for ADVA Optical Networking within the country.

"We compete within one of the fiercest marketplaces, within one of the fiercest industries. In this environment, every advantage is a competitive edge," said Zakariya Al-Maghdri, information technology services manager, Orpic. "That's why our network is so important. It enables us to be more efficient, to be more flexible, to be more dynamic. Over the next four years our company will undergo transformational growth as three major projects come on stream. With the ADVA FSP 3000, our network has a firm foundation, one that can scale as our company grows. From 10G to 100G and beyond - there are no limits here. The ADVA FSP 3000 doesn't just provide scale though, it's also about peace of mind, about security, and with its encryption technology we know our data is safe throughout the network. There are no weaknesses, no blind spots and this is vital."

In addition to its encryption and low latency capabilities, the ADVA FSP 3000 was also chosen because of its extensive qualifications within the storage and data center community, particularly from Brocade. Orpic is primarily using native Fibre Channel (FC) between its data centers and was intent on working with a partner that has specific experience of transporting FC over expansive distances. This is a skill that ADVA Optical Networking's team has developed over many years. With over 15,000 enterprise customers, including many of the Fortune 1,000, ADVA Optical Networking has an intrinsic understanding of how to build and leverage networks to become an enterprise's competitive edge.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
