MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany -- ADVA Optical Networking today introduced its new Network Functions Virtualization (NFV) product family to the industry at the Open Networking Summit (ONS) 2015. The ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series is a unique multi-layer service demarcation solution that has been specifically engineered to enable network operators to smoothly introduce NFV-based services. This new technology is built around openness, security and service assurance - critical components for NFV-optimized Network Interface Devices (NIDs). The ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series is currently in trials with a number of network operators and will be commercially available later in 2015.
The ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series enables network operators to offer true multi-service access by combining the demarcation of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and IP services in one network element. This single box also features ADVA ConnectGuard Ethernet technology - a security suite that is critical in an NFV environment to ensure that stringent privacy requirements are met. What's more, the ADVA FSP 150-GE110Pro Series reflects ADVA Optical Networking's commitment to building best-in-breed open technology. It has been developed on a fully open and standardized architecture, ensuring that it's not limited to vendor-specific orchestration solutions. This openness is vital to network operators that want to build the best possible NFV platforms.
