Robust Encryption, Low Latency and Proven Scalability Key Criteria for Success

Muscat, Sultanate of Oman. May 7, 2014.
ADVA Optical Networkingannounced today that Orpic (Oman Oil Refineries and
Petroleum Industries Company) has deployed theADVA FSP 3000to connect its
regional data centers. Stretching across 280km of fiber, Orpic's network will
use the ADVA FSP 3000 to transport and protect mission-critical data.
Featuring the latest encryption and low latency technology, the ADVA FSP 3000
has been specifically configured to provide the most secure and fastest data
transport possible. The network was installed and will be maintained by
systems integrator HTC (Hussam Technology Company), a new channel for ADVA
Optical Networking within the country.

"We compete within one of the fiercest marketplaces, within one of the
fiercest industries. In this environment, every advantage is a competitive
edge," said Zakariya Al-Maghdri, information technology services manager,
Orpic. "That's why our network is so important. It enables us to be more
efficient, to be more flexible, to be more dynamic. Over the next four years
our company will undergo transformational growth as three major projects come
on stream. With the ADVA FSP 3000, our network has a firm foundation, one
that can scale as our company grows. From 10G to 100G and beyond - there are
no limits here. The ADVA FSP 3000 doesn't just provide scale though, it's
also about peace of mind, about security, and with its encryption technology
we know our data is safe throughout the network. There are no weaknesses, no
blind spots and this is vital."

In addition to its encryption and low latency capabilities, the ADVA FSP 3000
was also chosen because of its extensive qualifications within the storage
and data center community, particularly from Brocade. Orpic is primarily
using nativeFibre Channel (FC)between its data centers and was intent on
working with a partner that has specific experience of transporting FC over
expansive distances. This is a skill that ADVA Optical Networking's team has
developed over many years. With over 15,000 enterprise customers, including
many of the Fortune 1,000, ADVA Optical Networking has an intrinsic
understanding of how to build and leverage networks to become an enterprise's
competitive edge.

"We don't just build technology, we build a framework for success, a
foundation for the future," commented Olaf Schönheit, senior director,
Business Development, ADVA Optical Networking. "Our team worked closely with
Orpic and HTC to ensure that our ADVA FSP 3000 met every criteria, every
requirement necessary. The result is a network that exceeds expectations, a
network that will grow at the same pace as Orpic's business. This was no
small task. Effectively connecting data centers over distance requires a team
with extensive knowledge of the technology and the region. This is where our
team excels. What's more, our relationship with HTC provides a compelling
partnership, one that we're sure will lead to further success within the

"When we build a network, we're not simply integrating the best technology,
we're integrating the best team, the best expertise," noted Mohammed
Al-Abduwani, senior sales manager, HTC. "It's this combined integration of
technology, people and knowledge that ensures our success; that ensures our
customers' success. This is why our relationship with ADVA Optical Networking
is so important. We've worked side-by-side with ADVA Optical Networking's
team to develop a network that exceeds Orpic's expectations. From design, to
testing, to implementation, we've taken each step together. This unity will
prove key in the future and is a unity that will continue to grow in
