New Product Delivers Unique Service Assurance for NFV-Based Applications

Munich, Germany. October 8, 2015.
ADVA Optical Networkingtoday achieved an industry first with the launch of
itsFSP 150 ProVMproduct family. The ADVA FSP 150 ProVM is a new generation of
edgenetwork functions virtualization(NFV) technology that significantly
extends the capabilities of present network interface devices by combining
Carrier Ethernet 2.0 and IP demarcation with an internal server that can host
virtual network applications. What stands this product family apart is that
it's the only carrier-grade virtual network functions (VNF) edge solution on
the market that can deliver comprehensive service assurance for both its
integrated server as well as the connecting network. Hardware-assisted
monitoring enables service providers to directly monitor the performance of
applications in the most detailed and reliable manner possible. Such service
assurance is critical for service providers as they seek to expand their
business to offer managed network services.

"Service providers are standing on the edge of a new era of revenue
opportunity. NFV presents them with a real chance to dramatically increase
the managed services they sell," said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical
Networking. "The key to success here is in the implementation. Our new FSP
150 ProVM is the only carrier-grade VNF solution in the industry that
combines extensive, hardware-assisted service assurance with virtual
application hosting. And this is critical. Service providers need the same
level of operations, administration and maintenance as they have with their
existing demarcation technology. Without this, they'll lack critical
functionality. NFV at the edge of the network needs assurance, openness and
security - three vital ingredients and our FSP 150 ProVM has them all. There
can be no question that this technology will be an important component of
NFV-centric networks."

To ensure that service providers are able to fully leverage the potential of
NFV, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM is a completely open solution. It includes
standardized interfaces based on OpenFlow, OpenStack and Netconf/YANG. The
close integration of control and management systems with the underlying
hardware creates strong synergies between physical and virtual network
functions, resulting in optimum performance. To mitigate the security risks
of migrating to open-source software and standard network components, the
ADVA FSP 150 ProVM includes ADVA ConnectGuard(TM). This technology provides a
key mix of features that ensure network security and data protection. These
features include robust encryption, tamper resistance and network isolation
with access control lists. What's more, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM also includes
the company's unique SyncjackTMtime distribution and assurance technology, a
compelling feature for virtualization in the radio access network.

"We've worked closely with a number of leading service providers to develop
our FSP 150 ProVM. This tight collaboration with fixed and mobile operators
has resulted in an essential solution - one that meets all specific
functional and operational network requirements," commented Stephan
Rettenberger, VP, marketing, ADVA Optical Networking. "Our team has crafted
an edge NFV device that is unlike anything on the market. It builds on our
Etherjack(TM) technology to create service demarcation for the virtualized
world. And by combining this directly with an internal server that hosts
VNFs, you have a synergy of hardware and software that delivers unparalleled
results. This unique combination will prove imperative for service providers
as they rapidly respond to a wealth of new business opportunities."

The capabilities of the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM will be displayed in a joint
demonstration with BT and Alchera Technologies at the SDN&OpenFlow World
Congress from October 12 until October 16.
