Evolving the metro network

With bandwidth-intensive applications like video-chat becoming commonplace, the metro is facing unprecedented demand. Unfortunately, many networks are out of date and not up to the task. As an expanding customer-base demands more from an increasing number of connected devices, metro networks need to evolve away from traditional fixed OADM technologies if they want to increase capacity and avoid significant and costly bottlenecks. 


In order to transform the metro into a simpler to operate, future-proof environment, three ADVA technologies are key. The ADVA FSP 3000 MicroConnect™ delivers ROADM flexibility at virtually the same cost as OADM technology and is optimised to save on space while also being incredibly power efficient. The FSP 3000 OpenFabric™ provides OTN scalability for far greater efficiency, and FSP 3000 TrueTime™ delivers the precise timing requirements needed to provide robust 5G services. 


Discover the operational simplicity, unprecedented agility and ease of use of the ADVA FSP 3000 MicroConnect™. Read how our FAP 3000 OpenFabric™ technology scales as demand dictates. And providing precise synchronization as we move into the 5G era, learn how our FSP 3000 TrueTime™ uses advanced timing technologies to deliver the sub-microsecond accuracy necessary for true service evolution.
