YORK, U.K. and MARTINSREID/MUNICH -- ADVA Optical Networking today announced that BT’s UK-based access network arm, Openreach, is deploying the ADVA FSP 2000 to support its nationwide Optical Spectrum Access (OSA) services. With OSA, Openreach’s customers enjoy very high-bandwidth connectivity between two end-user sites. The services are particularly well-suited for Wide Area Network (WAN) and Storage Area Network (SAN) applications where multiple client interfaces are involved.

“Our customers have exacting demands, which means their service selection must be versatile and reliable enough to meet these demands at a competitive price and on a timescale that is realistic for the end customer,” said Richard Thorpe, connectivity services general manager at Openreach. “We chose the ADVA FSP 2000 to support our OSA services because customers demand lower lead times and the flexibility to offer multi-speed, multi-protocol services that are supported by the latest DWDM (Dense Wavelength Division Multiplexing) technology. ADVA Optical Networking solutions enabled us to offer a short delivery lead time and at the same time cost-effectively support our customers’ strict Service Level Agreements (SLAs), which gives customers the security that their services are reliable and always proactively monitored.”
