MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany, and RAMSEY, N.J. -- ADVA Optical Networking (German Neuer Markt: ADV), a leading global provider of metro optical networking solutions, today announced the launch of an all-optical switching (OXC) module. Designed using Micro Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS) technology and provided as a plug-in module, the OXC module fully integrates into the FSP 3000, ADVA’s carrier-class metro transport platform.“To support the dynamic nature of today’s services efficiently, metro service providers must be able to rapidly reconfigure their networks,” stated Brian P. McCann, Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of ADVA. “ADVA’s OXC solution is designed to enable service providers to do so with the click of a mouse. It is a simple and an elegant solution to optimize their existing infrastructure, and enables new revenue opportunities. ADVA’s OXC solution also results in considerable savings compared to alternative static solutions."ADVA’s OXC module will be demonstrated at the upcoming National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference (NFOEC) July 9 through July 11th 2001, in Baltimore. ADVA will be at booth 4408 in the Convention Center.ADVA AG Optical NetworkingFor more information on NFOEC, please visit the Light Reading NFOEC Site.
