MUNICH -- ADVA Optical Networking today launched its Big Data Transport (BDT) solution. Designed specifically to transport enormous amounts of data in the most efficient, scalable and secure way possible, BDT will help to define a new era of data center connectivity. Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, BDT has been jointly developed with the world's leading data center and storage area networking enterprises. It's these enterprises that have requested a single product that can channel increasingly enormous amounts of data between an ever growing number of geographically dispersed data centers. BDT is the most scalable solution on the market capable of doing this in the most secure way possible.

“Data centers are entering a new era of rapid growth, a new era of extreme data demands,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “But to connect these data centers and transport the ever growing data volumes in the fastest and securest manner is no small task. This is especially true when we look at the emergence of the mega data centers. That's why we've developed our BDT solution. It's a direct response to customers who need the ultimate in efficiency, the ultimate in scale, the ultimate in security. There can be no question that 2014 will prove to be a pivotal year for enterprises seeking to evolve their data center strategies and intertwine these with their long-term business goals.”

ADVA Optical Networking's BDT solution has been heavily optimized to deliver several key efficiencies - space, power and cost. Each of these efficiencies is designed to drive down operating expenditures and reduce IT budgets. BDT is also inherently scalable. From 10Gbit/s, to 40Gbit/s, to 100Gbit/s and beyond, BDT can scale to specific networking demands. This scalability is critical when we consider the continued growth in data, something that is not forecast to slow anytime soon. Scale is about more than speeds though and BDT has been developed to ensure fiber efficiency. Its single fiber working (SFW) technology provides 192 bidirectional wavelengths on one point-to-point fiber - a vital asset in an age of fiber scarcity and resource optimization.

One of the most critical aspects of BDT is its innate security. It's been engineered to provide the most robust encryption technology possible. It's currently the only solution in the industry to offer 100Gbit/s with AES 256 in-flight encryption. It also encrypts the header and checksum of the signal, not just the payload or select bytes in the header. Every bit that enters one of our client ports is encrypted. What’s more, it provides encryption at the lowest network layer and is completely agnostic to protocols such as Fibre Channel, InfiniBand and Ethernet. In the wake of recent security scares and possible fiber tapping, this level of data protection is vital for enterprises that need maximum security.

Broadband speeds are ramping up across Europe as the continent, at its own pace, follows North America towards a gigabit society. But there are many steps to take on the road to gigabit broadband availability and a number of technology options that can meet the various requirements of Europe’s high-speed fixed broadband network operators. During this radio show we will look at some of the catalysts for broadband network investments and examine the menu of technology options on offer, including vectoring and for copper plant evolution and the various deployment possibilities for FTTH/B.
