Adva Optical Networking has announced that Eurofiber is deploying its FSP 150 technology as the foundation of its new flexible business services. The intelligent, multi-layer demarcation and aggregation technology will enable Eurofiber to respond to rapidly growing demand from enterprises across the Netherlands and Belgium for high-bandwidth, cost-effective SLA-based Carrier Ethernet connectivity.

Deployed at the customer premises, the FSP 150 provides a single platform for MEF-certified Layer 2 and 3 services and easily scales from 1GbE to 10GbE. With zero touch provisioning, the device offers comprehensive assurance services to support for SLA management. Adva’s partner Netways Europe also provided valuable support with the deployment of the new solution.

“What makes the FSP 150 such an effective CPE solution is its flexibility and scale. It empowers us to give our customers a genuinely future-proof architecture ready to expand alongside the growing needs of their business,” said Hessel Idzenga, manager, design and architecture at Eurofiber.

“The FSP 150 is a powerful tool for accelerating new service activation while at the same time driving down operational costs. It also integrates seamlessly with our existing management system,” he added.

Ed Zalmstra, sales director, at Adva Netherlands, commented, “Our FSP 150 delivers the flexibility to quickly transition from 1Gbit/s to 10Gbit/s Ethernet services without requiring extra space and power consumption.”

With one device supporting multiple technologies, Eurofiber can easily provide a price-compettive route to high-performance 10Gbit/s services. The new CPE solution delivers multi-layer demarcation and aggregation, supporting MEF-certified CE 2.0, IPv4/IPv6 and MPLS service demarcation. With its comprehensive set of service assurance functions, the FSP 150 provides full visibility of service quality – an essential tool for effective SLA management. And, with its zero touch provisioning capabilities, the technology can be easily installed and connected by customers. It has been integrated seamlessly with Eurofiber’s existing network management system.

Zalmstra added, “Our FSP 150 enables Eurofiber to meet ever-increasing demand for cloud services while also optimising its infrastructure to support diverse network technologies. Now it can instantly increase bandwidth as soon as customers require it and address the emerging need for multi-layer networking.”
