New Functionality Delivers Highest Reliability For Carrier Ethernet-Based
ADVA Optical Networking announced
today the availability of Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) on
150 family. The ITU-T standard, also known as G.8032v2, provides
millisecond protection and recovery switching, ensuring highest
ring-based Carrier Ethernet infrastructures. Fully configured to support
Connectivity Fault Management (802.1ag), the FSP 150 family now features
fast failure detection, protection and advanced multi-vendor
"We're continuously listening to our customers, continuously
products to deliver what our customers need," said Christoph Glingener,
ADVA Optical Networking. "The introduction of ERPS is a clear
this. Our engineers have worked hard to ensure that our ERPS is
configure, robust and capable of multi-vendor interoperability. Carrier
depend heavily on survivable ring topologies, and we have taken
functionality to the next level."
The FSP 150 family with ERPS now enables business Ethernet and mobile
service providers to aggregate subrate Gigabit Ethernet services onto
even 10 Gigabit Ethernet protected rings using a drop-and-continue
A robust quality of service mechanism operates independently on
transit traffic, guaranteeing that service level agreements are met.
150 family uses a standard protocol for multi-vendor
supports point-to-point and multipoint services.
"Carrier Ethernet has started to rapidly replace SONET/SDH technology
conquering more and more segments of carrier infrastructure," commented
Howard, co-founder and principal analyst, Infonetics Research. "I learned
ago that service providers like rings for their resiliency and lower port
advantages. As Ethernet replacements of SONET/SDH have gathered pace,
desire for access rings have correspondingly grown. Providers will
evaluate ADVA Optical Networking's ERPS technology, since it is an
and multi-vendor interoperable approach to ring protection, something
market clearly wants."
