The new transport network has the capacity, resiliency and scalability IRON needs to help Idaho play a key role in the global community of learning and scientific discovery.
By utilizing the ADVA FSP 3000 in its backbone network, IRON is minimizing costs and ensuring maximum efficiency across every section of its transport infrastructure. The new backbone network now supports 100Gbit/s transport so that higher education institutions and research centers even in remote rural areas can take advantage of ultra-fast broadband services. This enables technical data transfer and storage objectives that would otherwise be impossible in many regions. ADVA Optical Networking’s modular solution provides flexibility and cost-efficiency as it transmits, multiplexes and protects high-speed data. Its high-density design guarantees power efficiency and the smallest possible footprint. What’s more, the ADVA FSP 3000’s scalable modular architecture ensures that IRON’s new network is future-proofed against further growth in demand.
“Research and education communities need to be at the cutting edge of technology. With this deployment, IRON is ensuring that laboratories and academic institutions across the state can access high-bandwidth applications and further push the boundaries of what’s possible,” commented John Scherzinger, senior VP, sales, North America, ADVA Optical Networking. “Built on our FSP 3000, this new transport network has the capacity, resiliency and scalability IRON needs to help Idaho play a key role in the global community of learning and scientific discovery. With the capacity to quickly and easily turn up new services and the ability to scale to 100Gbit/s and beyond, IRON’s new infrastructure will satisfy the needs of universities, laboratories and research hospitals for a long time to come.”
