To power its "Managed WDM Service," KDDI is deploying ADVA Optical's FSP 3000 WDM solution. Already adopted by various large enterprises, KDDI will leverage ADVA's platform to deliver optical services from the Kanto area in Japan.
Built on advanced optics, the new "Managed WDM Service" will provide 1- and 10 Gbps Ethernet and 1- and 2 Gbps Fiber Channel interfaces. By updating its network with ADVA's WDM gear, it will be better prepared to address the need for a diverse set enterprise network protocols, including native Gigabit Ethernet and Fibre Channel.
"We selected ADVA Optical Networking to deliver our primary solution because we needed a highly reliable network," explained Mr. Yasuhisa Yamada, director of the Data Network Product Planning Department from KDDI in a release. "Enterprise customers today cannot tolerate network downtime, and they need the flexibility to expand network services as their business changes."
