TIP harnesses ADVA for successful trial of end-to-end open optical network

Share

ADVA (FSE: ADV) today announced that its FSP 3000 open line system (OLS) and Ensemble Controller network management and SDN domain controller system played a key role in a successful Telecom Infra Project (TIP) open optical networking proof of concept (PoC). The demo is a crucial step for vendor-neutral disaggregated solutions with operators able to mix and match best-in-breed technology and leverage different product lifecycles. The PoC showed how multi-vendor network components can be managed by a unified software-defined networking (SDN) control system. Specifically designed for easy interoperability, ADVA’s FSP 3000 OLS and Ensemble Controller ensured seamless integration into the open environment, including third-party terminals. The PoC will be on display at OFC at the virtual Demo Zone from June 7 to 11.

“This PoC is an important milestone in the journey to fully open and disaggregated optical networking. It offers new levels of visibility and a way to manage the entire multi-vendor environment. With the power to seamlessly integrate components from different suppliers, network operators can confidently deploy best-in-class infrastructure that meets their exact requirements,” said Christoph Glingener, CTO, ADVA. “Our FSP 3000 OLS was central to the demo. It’s a truly open solution that gives operators freedom to build multi-supplier architectures and then evolve and optimize each network layer separately. With our Ensemble Controller also playing a major role – providing network management and programmatic SDN control – this demo highlights the value of technology like ours that supports interoperability and disaggregation.”

Conducted by TIP’s Converged Architectures for Network Disaggregation & Integration (CANDI) sub-group, the PoC proved that all components of an open optical network can be operated by a single SDN controller. By demonstrating unified management of the OLS, open terminals and optical planning tool, the demo paves the way for true open networking and a new model of infrastructure operations with operators taking over network integration and optimization processes. The demo utilized ADVA’s compact and modular FSP 3000 OLS. With its open interfaces, the OLS interworks seamlessly with third-party transceivers and supports the latest coherent transport innovation. It also featured ADVA’s Ensemble Controller network management system, which was specifically designed to help network operators break up network layers while moving towards a software-defined multi-vendor architecture. TIP partners collaborating with ADVA on the demo included the major network operators Orange, Telefónica and Telia Company.

“The success of TIP’s PoC offers a major boost to communication service providers looking to harness the benefits of increased agility and supplier diversity in their optical infrastructure. Our open technology gives network operators the opportunity to massively increase efficiencies by moving away from closed proprietary systems and towards vendor-neutral networking,” commented Stephan Neidlinger, VP, global business development, ADVA. “The TIP community has once again accomplished a significant step forward for open, disaggregated and standards-based connectivity technology. By collaborating closely with our partners in this project, our team has helped to accelerate the development of the next generation of communication networks, free from vendor lock-in and ready to connect tomorrow’s world.”

ISAE-SUPAERO's "Collaborative Rover and Drone" Project, Facilitating the Exploration of the Moon21.6.2021 09:54:00 CEST | Press release

While Thomas Pesquet launched on April 22 as part of the Alpha mission, one of humanity's biggest challenges remains even further away than the ISS, 400,000 km from Earth: the establishment of a lunar base. But before being able to settle on the Moon in a prolonged way to exploit its resources or as a logistic support for future exploration missions further away, an exploration work is necessary. The use of autonomous robotic systems would allow mapping of dangerous or hard-to-reach areas from space, before eventually deploying infrastructure such as a spaceport or human habitation. Faced with this exploration challenge, the Space Advanced Concepts Laboratory (SaCLaB) of ISAE-SUPAERO in Toulouse and a team of students from the Institute are developing the Collaborative Rover and Drone (CoRoDro) project to study navigation and autonomous operations for space robotic systems. This scientific study is one of 12 university technology projects selected in 8 different countries as part of th
