ADVA FSP 3000 ROADM Technology Plays Key Role in Delivering Ultimate Network
Flexibility

Dublin, Ireland. May 21, 2014.
ADVA Optical Networkingannounced today that it is showcasing a 4K video
services network at TNC2014. Developed in collaboration with HEAnet, i2CAT
and Eurotek, the demo is designed to outline how enterprises can roll-out
commercially viable ultra-high definition video streaming services. Based
principally upon a software-defined networking (SDN) controller and theADVA
FSP 3000'scolorless and directionless reconfigurable optical add drop
multiplexers (ROADMs), the network underlines how you can effectively
transport terabits of data to a multi-tenant cloud-based infrastructure.

"Flexibility is key for tomorrow's networks; it's a fundamental building block
that could prove to be the deciding factor between success and failure," said
Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical Networking. "This is especially true
for service providers that need to provision enormous amounts of streaming
media. Being able to rapidly respond to fluctuating bandwidth demand is
vital. That's why this demo is so important. We've harnessed OpenDaylight to
build an SDN controller that is capable of orchestrating end-to-end 4K video
services over an advanced ROADM network using OpenNaaS as a service
orchestration platform. This is something that has never been done before."

The TNC2014 demo is the latest collaboration between the teams at ADVA Optical
Networking and HEAnet. Over the past eight years, ADVA Optical Networking has
worked with HEAnet to rapidly expand its research and education (R&E)
network. With a footprint that covers over 4,000 institutions and 200,000
users across Ireland, HEAnet is continually advancing its infrastructure. In
2013, ADVA Optical Networking completed the latest upgrade to HEAnet's
national backbone with the deployment of theADVA 100G Core,
multi-degreeROADMsand theFSP Network Manager.

"We've worked side-by-side with the team at ADVA Optical Networking for many
years. They're continually helping us to drive our network forward and
realize our users' ambitions," commented John Boland, CEO, HEAnet. "With the
TNC2014 demo, we're showing how the flexibility of software-defined
networking can be applied to optical networks like the HEAnet national
backbone network in the future."
