Good news for ADAPTIT’s partner ADVA: GRNET trials ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ and TIP’s ( http://www.telecominfraproject.com/who-we-are/ ) Voyager white box solution. Disaggregated multi-vendor architecture transports 200G more than 500km. ADAPTIT played a pivotal role in facilitating the field trial and is proud to announce that GRNET, the Greek research and technology network, has successfully completed a joint field trial involving the ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect™ 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™ and TIP’s Voyager will be on display at ADVA’s booth, 2601, at OFC.
“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 before”, commented Andreas Jelinek, Senior Sales Director, ADVA Eastern Europe.
