JSC Fortex Deploys ADVA 100G Metro Throughout Moscow Network
Plug-and-Play Simplicity Key to ADVA Optical Networking's Success
MOSCOW, Oct. 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --
ADVA Optical Networking announced today that
JSC Fortex has deployed its 100G Metro throughout Moscow and the surrounding
regions. With a network covering over 3,000km of fiber, JSC Fortex is using the
ADVA 100G Metro primarily to upgrade existing 10G services and prepare for
increased bandwidth demand from its mix of business and residential customers.
The ADVA 100G Metro was specifically selected by JSC Fortex because of its plug-
and-play simplicity, especially when upgrading existing services. Installed by
IT integrators, Connect Unit, JSC Fortex expects to make further deployments of
the ADVA 100G Metro throughout 2013.
"There's a common thread for all of our customers, one common denominator and
that's bandwidth. Enterprise customers, residential customers, the demand for
greater data access continues to surge," said Andrey Varslavan, CTO, JSC Fortex.
"What's key for us is speed of response, speed of meeting our customers'
demands. We need to ensure that we have the solution they need, when they need
it. This is what's so special about the ADVA 100G Metro. We were able to plug
this into our network and immediately upgrade current 10G services. The
experience was seamless."
Fully integrated into the ADVA FSP 3000, ADVA Optical Networking's 100G Metro
solution is built on 4x28G direct detection technology delivering four key
efficiencies: cost, space, power and spectral. These efficiencies are critical
for service providers and enterprises that want to deploy 100G solutions in the
metro environment, but do not want the associated cost or footprint of coherent
technology. ADVA Optical Networking's 100G Metro solution is a direct response
to customers' demands for efficient 100Gbit/s data transport across distances of
up to 500km.
"When talking to our customers, one thing is very clear. They want simplicity.
They want ease of use. They want plug and play," commented Stephan Rettenberger,
vice president, Marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. "This is why our ADVA 100G
Metro is proving so popular within the industry. For JSC Fortex, this simplicity
was critical in upgrading its current 10G services. With an incredibly diverse
range of business and residential customers, JSC Fortex couldn't risk any
downtime, any costly delays with this upgrade."
