BT's Openreach Reaches Ethernet Access Milestone
LONDON -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Openreach, the infrastructure division of BT Group, has deployed over 100,000 FSP 150 circuits into its Ethernet Access Direct (EAD) services. This figure marks a major milestone and represents one of the largest installed bases of Ethernet connectivity in the world. One of the key reasons for this success is the ADVA FSP Management Suite that enables Openreach to drastically simplify the provisioning of new services and rapidly respond to customer requests.
Since its public launch in 2009, EAD services have been widely adopted by enterprises throughout the U.K. It's this success that demands a robust network management tool that is capable of removing complexity from operations, administration and maintenance tasks. This is one of the strengths of the ADVA FSP Management Suite. Over a decade of development means that it can meet even the most exacting networking demands. During the course of 2013/14, there will be further development of the management suite to include additional support for Synchronous Ethernet and virtual services.
