Netsam uses ADVA technology to boost metro network capacity

ADVA (FSE: ADV) has announced that Netsam has deployed its FSP 3000 and FSP 150 to dramatically expand its metro network and answer fierce data demand, the company said.

Featuring the ADVA FSP 3000 open line system (OLS) with micro-ROADMs and ADVA FSP 150 demarcation technology, the new solution gives the Swedish communication service provider (CSP) the power to quickly and easily turn up new high-value services.

The flexible ROADM-based photonic layer ensures Netsam´s fiber resources are used with optimal efficiency. With this and the ADVA FSP 150 deployed at customer premises, Netsam is able to provide SLA-based business services with speeds up to 100Gbit/s. ADVA´s partner NetNordic, a solutions integrator in Scandinavia, also played a key role in the project.

The network upgrade offers a major boost to Netsam´s business and residential customers in the county of Jönköping. As well as supporting capacity up to 100Gbit/s, the new solution simplifies operations and enables Netsam to rapidly activate assured SLA-based applications.

It features the ADVA FSP 3000 OLS, a metro-optimized packet-optical solution that consolidates multiple key functions to ensure footprint, configuration and cabling needs are kept to a minimum. Netsam has also begun deploying the ADVA FSP 150 as a CPE solution. This provides true multi-service access by combining the demarcation of Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and IP services in a single device.
