ADVA Optical Networking (Booth 4875) announces the latest release of its flagship optical platform product, the Fiber Service Platform (FSP) 3000 Release 8. Highlights include new dynamic optical transport features for faster service provisioning; improved ease of use and platform interoperability; and a common, generalized MPLS control plane for helping to improve a user's path setup, including path computation, resource reservation and ROADM configuration across the entire FSP 3000 product family. The system also has common management and service provisioning and planning across the entire FSP 3000 product family, as well as an expanded ROADM portfolio with new WSS and iPLC modules. It provides variable gain amplifiers and Layer 2 features to include residential broadband rollouts for complex service offerings, including video-on-demand, IPTV, VoIP and Internet access. The FSP 3000 will include expanded aggregation with multiple GbE per 10G wavelength and new GbE ADM for increased GbE service provisioning. Other enhanced Ethernet features include RMON-based performance monitoring, Metro Ethernet Forum-compliant UNI and ITU-T Y.1731-based OAM and support for multiple Ethernet virtual circuits per port with VLAN tagging, support for unicast and broadcast services and support for multiple classes of service. The product also features integrated 1x40G and 4x10G transponders with OUT-3 network port and expanded multiservice transponder options with a single muxponder card for Ethernet, storage and any legacy Sonet/synchronous digital hierarchy services.
