Service providers and enterprises are faced with an increasingly complex networking environment. The continued explosion in bandwidth demand combined with growing expectations to access data-intensive applications wherever you are and with the lowest latency possible is rapidly changing our global networks. To ensure continued profitability, it is vital that networks are built on a scalable optical foundation that can grow with changing business demands. Cloud Connectiv can help you build and grow your dark fiber based network leveraging Adva’s industry leading platform.
Are You Ready for True Network Automation?
To ensure continued profitability, it’s critical that service providers and enterprises simplify their network architectures and automate their infrastructures. Not only does this significantly reduce operational costs, but it also enables new services to be turned up with the simple click of a button. Cloud Connevtiv can help you leverage Adva FSP 3000 adds a new dimension to flexible service delivery. You will experience true network automation, dynamic routing and superior scalability. Simplify your network operations and embrace new revenue opportunities.
What Does the Future Hold?
The only certainty for tomorrow’s network is the continued demand for bandwidth and the need to deliver it to any location as quickly as possible. The two technologies that will accommodate this demand are optical and Ethernet. Our FSP 3000 is built on an Optical+Ethernet foundation, providing our customers with a future-proof networking solution that will scale to tomorrow’s unconstrained data transport needs.
A Comprehensive Optical Solution
For over a decade, service providers and enterprises alike have relied on Cisco for metro, regional, long haul, and data center optical transport networks. These networks transport huge quantities of data at high rates over great distances, providing the foundation for all WANs.
Features and Capabilities
Cisco ushered optical transport into the modern era with the Multiservice Provisioning Platform (MSPP) and continued its leadership by introducing the industry’s first widely deployed reconfigurable optical add/drop multiplexer (ROADM) technology. This brought the operational ease of use of the MSPP into dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) networks.
Cisco ROADM innovation continues into its fourth generation, with the first Single Module ROADM. It combines multidegree wavelength switching functionality with optical amplification and spectrum analysis in a single slot line card.
In combination with advanced features such as colorless and omnidirectional add/drop, the Cisco ONS 15454 Multiservice Transport Platform (MSTP) provides wavelength switched optical network (WSON) functionality. This embeds optical layer intelligence directly into optical network elements, to support true wavelength-on-demand services and dynamic restoration.
Gain Flexible Aggregation
Cisco optical transport aggregation solutions integrate packet, SONET, and OTN aggregation and switching into the DWDM transport platform. Customers will realize the benefits of efficient wavelength fill and tight communication among network layers.
Selected on a per card basis, a mix of Layer 1 services, time division multiplexing (TDM), and packet switching technologies can be deployed where needed. This can meet customer and network requirements, while reducing footprint and simplifying operations. The ONS 15454 MSTP can aggregate services into 2.5, 10, 40, and 100 Gb wavelengths.
Did your computing needs shoot up overnight? Or did they drop drastically during your slow season? Instead of having to hire — or fire — new staff or purchase more equipment to handle it yourself, you can just make a call to your colocation provider and scale your service up or down as needed.
Colocation providers keep your servers in climate-controlled data centers, with high bandwidth speeds, and excellent redundancy for network connections. You won’t have to pay the costs to purchase and maintain this kind of IT infrastructure in your own offices, and your internal IT staff can focus on other business operations.
Quality colocation providers house your servers in secure data centers, with security measures that include biometric scanners, closed circuit cameras, on-site security, coded access, alarm systems, and more. And with colocation, you don’t have to hire or purchase any of these security measures yourself — it’s all included in your service plan.
If you have to move offices, or are hit with a power outage, or suffer a natural disaster, you won’t have to worry about your data or services going down. A colocation provider will have multiple backup generators and contingencies in place to ensure that there is never an interruption in service, for you, or for your customers.
Not only does using a colocation provider often save money, but it also turns unpredictable capital outlays into predictable monthly expenses. You only pay for your own equipment, not a whole datacenter. Your company will be able to budget for IT needs and allocate existing resources more efficiently.
