ADVA FSP 3000 and Service Manager Enable Faster Service Provisioning for Triple-Play Services

ADVA Optical Networking announced today that VOO, the leading provider of cable television service to Belgium's Brussels and Wallonia regions, has upgraded its ADVA FSP 3000 core optical network with ROADM technology. Spanning over 2,500 kilometers of fiber, VOO's optical network consists of 11 100G capable core nodes and over 100 secondary optical nodes. The network now enables flexible service routing that reduces planning time, operational costs and lead times when deploying Business-to-Business (B2B), mobile backhaul and triple play cable services. This new ROADM infrastructure, implemented by the system integrator, Arcadiz Telecom, interconnects content distribution networks and centralized transport platforms.

"In a highly competitive environment, quality, flexibility, scalability, fast service delivery and innovation are key elements," said Nico Weymaere, CTO, VOO. "In order to maintain our strong footprint, we deployed a flexible converged next-generation network with ROADM technology that is our key to success in delivering innovative services quickly and efficiently to our customers. The continuous support and expertise of Arcadiz Telecom, coupled with the quality and simplicity of the market-leading metro WDM solution from ADVA Optical Networking gives us the technological advantage to keep ahead of the competition and offer our customers a best-in-class service experience."

"With over 1 million business and residential customers driving the demand for increased bandwidth and advanced services, VOO required a scalable and flexible end-to-end solution that allowed for fast provisioning of new services through the FSP Service Manager," said Jos Vermeylen, managing director, Arcadiz Telecom. "The flexible ROADM network saves time and resources, enabling VOO to turn on its triple play residential and B2B services with one simple click."

"ROADM technology adds an unprecedented level of flexibility and scalability in the optical layer of this network," commented Yann Evain, sales director, BeNeLux, ADVA Optical Networking. "This flexibility is what enables customers like VOO to focus on growing its business and maintaining high customer satisfaction while having a network that simply works and supports future growth. We have worked closely with VOO for years to understand their needs. Arcadiz Telecom has been an invaluable part of the equation by providing continued design support, expertise and maintenance as the system integrator."

The ADVA FSP 3000 is a scalable Wavelength Division Multiplexing (WDM) system specifically designed for large enterprises and service providers that require a flexible, cost-effective system that will multiplex, transport and protect high-speed data, storage, voice and video applications over fiber optic networks.
