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.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
