inexio and Axians Deploy ADVA 100G Metro for Rapid Regional Bandwidth Growth

New Connectivity Plays Key Role in Enterprise and Residential Connectivity

MARTINSRIED/MUNICH, Germany, Dec. 4, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADVA Optical
Networking announced today that inexio has deployed the ADVA 100G Metro for
regional connectivity in Germany and Luxembourg. Operating one of Europe's
fastest growing networks, inexio is harnessing the ADVA 100G Metro to respond
to significant bandwidth growth from both its enterprise and residential
customers. A long-standing customer of ADVA Optical Networking and Axians,
inexio has benefited from the native scalability of the ADVA FSP3000,
gradually expanding its network infrastructure with customer demand. With over
5,000km of fiber, inexio will be making further 100G deployments in 2014. The
ADVA 100G Metro was installed by ADVA Optical Networking Elite partner

"We're a company  that believes in  technology, that believes  in trust,  that 
believes in providing customers with the best experience possible," said David
Zimmer,  managing  director,  inexio.  "That's  why  we've  developed  such  a 
long-term relationship  with the  team at  ADVA Optical  Networking and  their 
partner Axians. They  share our focus,  our passion. Together  we've built  an 
incredibly responsive network, one that continues to meet the expectations  of 
all  our  customers,  whether  they're  enterprises  seeking  robust  business 
continuity  solutions   or  residents   seeking  the   latest   high-bandwidth 
connections - we provide everything they need.  The ADVA 100G Metro is key  to 
this and ensures that we have access to all the bandwidth we could want."

Since its release in 2011, the ADVA  100G Metro has built a strong  reputation 
within the industry, enabling service providers and enterprises to deploy 100G
technology without  the associated  costs of  alternative coherent  solutions. 
Built on 4x28G direct detection technology, the ADVA 100G Metro delivers  four 
key efficiencies: cost,  space, power  and spectral.  These efficiencies  were 
central to inexio's  selection and deployment  of the ADVA  100G Metro.  Fully 
integrated into the  ADVA FSP 3000,  the direct detection  technology can  now 
transport data across  distances in  excess of  1,000km -  something that  was 
previously only possible with coherent equipment.

"Our focus isn't purely on technology, it isn't purely on networks. Our  focus 
is on our customers, on  helping them to be the  best they can be,"  commented 
Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, vice  president, Sales Central  Europe, ADVA  Optical 
Networking. "That's  why we  developed our  100G Metro  technology. It  was  a 
direct response to our customers who wanted to deploy a different kind of 100G
technology, one that  didn't exist anywhere  on the market.  We listen and  we 
act. That's why inexio has been a customer for over five years. That's why our
partner Axians  further  strengthened their  commitment  and became  an  Elite 
member of our Partner  Ecosphere Program. They value  our focus on  customers. 
They value our focus on helping them to achieve their goals and meet their own
customers' expectations. This is where our team excels, on pushing boundaries,
on developing technology that always delights."

"inexio is a  company with incredible  ambition. An ambition  that is  matched 
only  by  its  commitment  to  its  customers,  a  commitment  to  exceed  all 
expectations," said Detlev  Schmidt, managing  director and  head of  business 
unit, Carrier &  Service Providers,  Axians. "Our  team is  intent on  helping 
inexio strive to achieve these ambitions. With the ADVA 100G Metro, inexio  is 
taking the next  step in  the evolution  of its  network. As  it continues  to 
expand its customer base with even more enterprises and even more  residential 
communities, it needs a  network that can scale  to meet increasing  bandwidth 
demand. This is  what the  ADVA 100G  Metro was  built for.  And with  Axians, 
inexio can rely on a service  partner with great practical experience of  this 
technology, successfully  implemented  in other  networks.  With Axians  as  a 
trusted partner to reliably support the design and implementation and with the
ADVA 100G Metro, there is no  bandwidth ceiling, no bandwidth limitations,  no 
customer disappointment. It's the 100G technology you always imagined."
