The ADVA 500 series operates in bookended mode, to extend Ethernet services to any customer regardless of the intermediate access network. This enables flexible low cost deployments for point-to-point connectivity.


Our 500 series delivers Ethernet services in a compact, economical package that easily scales in capacity and service ubiquity as part of ADVA’s unique access portfolio. ADVA 500 devices come in 4-circuit and 8-circuit variants, supporting up to 16Mbit/s of connectivity (in E1 mode, with 12Mbit/s of connectivity in T1 mode). A robust service model including flexible VLAN manipulation, traffic shaping, traffic policing, and hierarchical traffic management allows carriers to guarantee the delivery of multiple services competing for the limited bandwidth over an access connection. The ADVA 500 series also benefits from our years of experience deploying end-to-end service OAM standards such as 802.1ag and Y. 1731, with quick and easy methods for monitoring service performance and availability across any network.

Simple Maintenance

Like the ADVA 400 family of products, our 500 series is also plug-and-play with it’s zero-touch installation capability. The central aggregator automatically creates a management channel, updates the software and pushes the configuration to any ADVA 500 series device connected. Extensive debugging and troubleshooting capabilities eliminate costly truck rolls. The product also provides a comprehensive, user-friendly command-line interface (CLI), SNMP, and an embedded web manager that requires no client software – all of which can be accessed over any in-band or out-of-band IP interface.


Our 500 series is a temperature-hardened, NEBS3-certified, full front access device, making it universally deployable in any environment – from the central office to a customer premise to a cell tower. With the ADVA 500 series, carriers can cost-effectively deploy high-speed Ethernet-over-PDH services to business sites and cell towers that do not have access to fiber and which cannot be reached by copper.
