Ultrafast nationwide backbone for Germany enables instant access to high-quality TV.

Adva Optical Networking has announced that the German digital service provider Exaring has deployed its technology in the country’s first fully integrated platform for IP entertainment services. Built on Adva’s FSP 3000 system, Exaring’s new national backbone network will transmit high-quality, on-demand television and gaming services to around 23 million households.

The 100Gbit/s core transport infrastructure, which also features Adva’s FSP Network Manager, has a total fibre length of 12,000km. Its reach, reliability and low latency were proven in rigorous large-scale field trials. Adva’s long-term partner Dacoso designed and implemented the network.

“With our new high-speed solution, we can provide an unrivalled viewing experience, combining the simplicity of an app and the flexibility of the cloud. Our innovative IP service model delivers unprecedented choice and phenomenal quality to both residential and mobile customers,” said Tim Kleefass, head of network, at Exaring.

He added, “Digitisation is changing the media landscape at an unprecedented rate. Now, thanks to the low latency and small footprint of the FSP 3000, we have the technological advantage to keep ahead of the competition. What’s more, the power and scalability of our network means we can explore further entertainment innovation in the future, such as virtual reality and 3D holography.”

Exaring’s 80-channel fibre-optic transport system will be used exclusively for the transmission of IP entertainment applications, including next-generation technologies such as Ultra-HD 8K TV. With a robust, high-capacity DWDM network solely dedicated to on-demand streaming and multi-player gaming, internet bottlenecks are bypassed and delay-free services are assured.

Frank Hering, director, sales, Germany, Adva, commented, “We’re helping Exaring take digital entertainment to another level. Our FSP 3000 gives them the foundation to provide the viewing and gaming experiences of the future. By delivering their cloud-based entertainment services through their own robust, high-capacity IP network, Exaring can guarantee their customers freedom from quality distortion as well as unprecedented choice.”
