ADVA FSP 150 ProVM Plays Pivotal Role in Video-Surveillance Demonstration

Düsseldorf, Germany. October 12, 2015.
ADVA Optical Networkingtoday launched a joint demonstration with BT that
reveals the future of managed services built uponnetwork functions
virtualization (NFV). This demonstration highlights how specific enterprise
applications can harness NFV to share resources and dramatically increase
efficiency. The demonstration focuses on CCTV-based video surveillance and
shows how backhaul-intensive applications such as this are currently limited
by the need to centrally process enormous amounts of data. ADVA Optical
Networking's newFSP 150 ProVM, with its built-in server, underlines how these
applications can use NFV at the network's edge to decentralize processes and
drastically improve application performance. The video surveillance
application is supplied by ADVA Optical Networking's partner - Alchera
Technologies.

"NFV is radically altering the technology landscape. It's presenting
significant opportunities to develop new services and help enterprises take
the next step in simplifying their IT operations," said Peter Willis, chief
researcher, data networks, BT. "With ADVA Optical Networking, we're showing
how simple and effective it is to decentralize services and push
functionality to the edge of the network. Our video-surveillance
demonstration clearly highlights the many efficiencies and enhancements that
can be gained. The key to achieving this is the ADVA FSP 150 ProVM. This new
technology enables us to add applications directly at the edge of the network
in the demarcation device. The potential here is enormous."

The CCTV-based video surveillance demonstration is a strong example of how the
ADVA FSP 150 ProVM can be used to significantly alter the managed services
landscape. Traditionally, this application is hosted centrally. However, the
ultrafast network connectivity required to carry high-definition video is not
always possible in some scenarios when such surveillance is needed most.
Decentralizing key functions and placing them at the network's edge, not only
improves the quality and quantity of information available, but also reduces
operational and capital costs. What makes this possible is the ADVA FSP 150
ProVM's unique marrying of hardware and application. By combining
hardware-supported performance monitoring of the server and the appliances
running on it, ADVA Optical Networking has created a unique carrier-grade NFV
platform essential for mission-critical applications. The implications here
for the development and deployment of managed services are profound.

"What we're showcasing here with BT is a new vision for managed services. It
marks the first step in a new era of NFV-enabled business opportunities for
service providers," commented Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA Optical
Networking. "The application we're focusing upon is one of many that we could
have highlighted, especially when you consider the continued progression of
the Internet of Things (IoT) and especially the industrial IoT. Consider the
opportunities for NFV-focused managed services in the utilities or
manufacturing industries. Our FSP 150 ProVM is the enabling factor here.
We've developed a unique design that tightly connects the application with
the hardware. What's more, it's completely open. There are no walled gardens.
These are the key elements that will drive our technology's success."

The joint demonstration will take place at the SDN&OpenFlow World Congress in
ADVA Optical Networking's booth from October 12 until October 16.
