PARIS -- ADVA Optical Networking and InfoVista (NASDAQ: IVTA; Euronext IFV - FR0004031649) today announced a global partnership through which InfoVista’s industry-leading performance-management solution, VistaInsight for Networks, will be paired with ADVA’s Etherjack-enabled FSP 150 product family. Used in tandem, the joint solution enables service providers to confidently offer exacting service level agreements (SLAs) with their intelligent Ethernet offerings and deliver customers real-time access to information on the performance of those services. By so comprehensively supporting Ethernet SLAs, the combined benefits of InfoVista’s and ADVA Optical Networking’s solutions address a critical last obstacle to mass-market adoption of Ethernet services.

ADVA Optical Networking will demonstrate InfoVista’s VistaInsight for Networks with the FSP 150 products in Booth 26 at Carrier Ethernet World Congress in Madrid, Spain, Sept. 25-29.

With ADVA Optical Networking’s Etherjack Service Assurance (ESA) feature, service providers for the first time can offer, monitor and verify Ethernet SLAs. Drawing data from the ADVA FSP 150 equipment, InfoVista’s VistaInsight for Networks enables Ethernet customers to easily see that they are experiencing the performance levels guaranteed in their SLAs. Through VistaInsight for Networks’ customer portal, enterprises can monitor data on frame delay, frame delay variation, frame loss and network availability end–to-end across services. This data gives enterprise customers the confidence that their Ethernet services are as carrier-grade as Frame Relay, Asynchronous Transfer Mode (ATM), Private Line and other traditional offerings with historically strong levels of support for mission-critical business applications.

"We are continuing to see strong uptake of our Ethernet services, and one of the key reasons is that we have put in place an infrastructure that enables us to offer Ethernet SLAs as stringent as those offered with traditional services," said Brendan Park, Director of Strategy with Uecomm ( http://www.uecomm.com.au/ ), a national Australian carrier offering high-speed broadband data solutions across its own advanced fiber optic network. "More and more businesses recognize the unprecedented value of Ethernet-based business services, and the ability to offer and assure Ethernet SLAs enables them to migrate."
