Multi-Degree ROADM Network Features Complete Automation and Fast Provisioning

ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Colt, the information delivery platform for European business, has selected the FSP 3000 as the foundation of its new ROADM-based network in Dublin, Ireland. The infrastructure enables incremental bandwidth to be added on demand with fast provisioning through the FSP Service Manager. The eleven-node, ring-based network spanning 100km is capable of flexible service routing that reduces operational costs, planning time and lead times when deploying new services.

Colt's enterprise and carrier customers will benefit from the flexibility that ROADM networks enable that will allow Colt to use a combination of hardware pre-provisioning and point-and-click configuration software to improve their customer's service delivery experience. This will give Colt a unique ability to deliver exceptional lead times for high bandwidth services for data centers, financial institutions and business campus locations around Dublin.

"The multi-degree ROADM architecture provides us with a flexible provisioning option, allowing us to easily provide access at nodes as demand grows with point-and-click technology, giving us a competitive advantage to attract customers through reduced lead times" said Ken Sherry, operations director for Colt in Ireland. "This will save valuable time and resources in network planning and service provisioning, making us more efficient and agile than ever before," he added.

"Scalability is a key component in today's networks as increasing amounts of data are being transported," commented Marcello Forti, vice president, U.K. & Ireland Sales, ADVA Optical Networking. "Service providers like Colt need the ability to quickly provision services and respond to customers. Fast provisioning through the FSP Service Manager saves time and resources, giving Colt an advantage in a competitive environment. Business customers benefit greatly by having bandwidth when and where they need it. That is what modern networking is all about."

The FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for large enterprises and service providers that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications over fiber optic networks.
