Disaggregated multi-vendor architecture transports 200G more than 500km
Athens, Greece. March 13, 2018. ADVA today announced that GRNET, the Greek
research and technology network, has successfully completed a joint field trial
involving the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) and Voyager, the Facebook-designed
packet transport system. The innovative transport solution successfully carried
200Gbit/s alien wavelengths across 510km of GRNET's existing WDM infrastructure.
The tests used standard interfaces for multi-vendor management and
orchestration, highlighting the value of optical network disaggregation and SDN-
based openness. Both the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) and TIP's Voyager will
be on display at ADVA's booth, 2601, at OFC.
"Data demand in the research and academic community is growing rapidly. That's
why we're exploring the power of the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) to transport
ultra-high-capacity alien wavelengths. Combined with Voyager, it creates a
compelling multi-vendor solution," said Chrysostomos Tziouvaras, broadband
infrastructures development manager, GRNET. "We're excited by the results of
this trial. It shows the potential of disaggregation to enhance our existing
network and the role that open interfaces can play in creating new
opportunities. By leveraging open, programmable cost-disruptive technology like
the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) and Voyager, we can efficiently respond to
changing customer demands and slot the latest and best equipment into our
network as soon as it's available."
In the field trial, 100Gbit/s and 200Gbit/s third-party wavelengths were
transported over GRNET's network, which spans 510km between Athens and Crete.
Central to the tests was the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM). Designed for
scalability and bandwidth optimization, the DCI platform offers unrivalled
efficiency and delivers huge energy savings. Also key was Voyager, the Facebook-
designed open optical packet transport system developed for the Telecom Infra
Project. Standardized open interfaces were used to orchestrate both technologies
and manage the multi-vendor architecture. ADVA's partner, the IT solutions
provider ADAPTIT, also played a pivotal role in facilitating the field trial.
"Today's service providers are facing fundamental challenges. Keeping pace with
ever-increasing data demand is simply impossible without a fundamental change to
network architecture. As this trial demonstrates, service providers now have the
power to leverage unprecedented value from their deployed infrastructure,"
commented Andreas Jelinek, senior director, sales, Eastern Europe, ADVA. "We've
been working closely together with GRNET and our partner ADAPTIT to address the
needs of Greece's R&E network through a unique combination of the most
innovative networking technologies. By expanding the horizons of what multi-
vendor infrastructure can achieve, we're shaping the future of connectivity and
collaboration and enabling educators and researchers to go further than ever
