ADVA FSP Supports Ethernet Rings
MUNICH -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today the availability of Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) on its
FSP 150 family. The ITU-T standard, also known as G.8032v2, provides sub 50 millisecond protection and recovery switching, ensuring highest reliability for ring-based Carrier Ethernet infrastructures. Fully configured to support IEEE Connectivity Fault Management (802.1ag), the FSP 150 family now features robust fast failure detection, protection and advanced multi-vendor interoperability.
“We're continuously listening to our customers, continuously refining our products to deliver what our customers need,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. “The introduction of ERPS is a clear reflection of this. Our engineers have worked hard to ensure that our ERPS is simple to configure, robust and capable of multi-vendor interoperability. Carrier networks depend heavily on survivable ring topologies, and we have taken this functionality to the next level.”
