New Product Suite Provides Unprecedented Customer Choice and the Industry's
Most Comprehensive NFV Solutions

Munich, Germany. February 17, 2016.
ADVA Optical Networkingtoday launched Ensemble, a strategic division and
product suite focused purely on network functions virtualization (NFV). The
division combines the software engineering capabilities of ADVA Optical
Networking and the award-winning NFV portfolio of its most recent acquisition
- Overture. TheADVA Ensemble solutionpresents communication service providers
(CSPs) with the industry's most comprehensive NFV product suite available.
This means that CSPs have an incredible range of choice as to how they
implement NFV - choice of hardware platforms, choice of software vendors and
choice of deployment locations. ADVA Optical Networking will showcase the
ADVA Ensemble product suite at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from
February 22 until February 25, 2016.

"What we're announcing here isn't simply a new division or a combined product
suite. It's our stake in the NFV landscape - a signal to our customers and to
the industry that we're making something special," said Brian Protiva, CEO,
ADVA Optical Networking. "Even at this early stage of the ADVA Ensemble
solution, it's clear we can now offer our customers something no one else in
the industry can - freedom of choice. However they want to implement NFV,
however they want to develop their network - we can do it. Our Ensemble
software architecture and our open hardware solutions enable our customers to
select best-of-breed elements of our portfolio or tightly integrated
end-to-end solutions. Our customers see this as truly compelling. When we
said we were creating an NFV powerhouse with our Overture acquisition, we
meant it. The ADVA Ensemble product suite is the first big step in our
journey."

The ADVA Ensemble solution is built upon an award-winning and already deployed
customer product set. This is something that very few in the NFV market can
offer. While other vendors continue to mature their fledgling technologies,
the ADVA Ensemble product suite has an advanced mixture of tried and tested
pure-play virtualization hardware and software. The Ensemble team is led by
James Buchanan as general manager, Prayson Pate, Overture co-founder, as CTO,
and Chris Swan as head of business development. Each of these individuals has
already had considerable success at driving NFV strategies and product
roadmaps forward. Collectively, they will harness their experience to ensure
that the ADVA Ensemble solution is at the core of NFV innovation and a key
player in the industry. The management group will be supported by a global
team of NFV developers and engineers.

"Ensemble is an ideal name for our new division because it takes the best of
ADVA Optical Networking and Overture's NFV technology and talent and meshes
them into one unified whole," commented Prayson Pate, CTO, Ensemble Division.
"As a combined force, we present the industry with something unique -
complete choice. Together, our teams have found incredible synergies and this
has led to an incredible product set. It goes beyond hardware and software
though. Ultimately it's about the people behind the products and our combined
engineering force is simply unmatched. We have more NFV knowledge and talent
than any other vendor in the market - something our customers already value
and appreciate. They know that the ADVA Ensemble team will help them every
step of their journey to seizing NFV's full potential."
