Application Note: Agile Core Transport Networks

  1. 1. APPLICATION NOTEAgile CoreTransport Networks “The ROADM provides the ability to simplify our operations infrastructure and reduce related costs. At the same time, the FSP 3000 platform delivers better utilization of our fiber plant.” Kaida Kaeval, TelevõrguStriving for the Lowest Cost per GbE MileThe core of the network is the workhorse that must handle the enormous amounts of data that are consumedby video, cloud computing and other popular bandwidth-intensive Web 2.0 applications. Yet, most core networksare still too inefficient and limited in bandwidth. As new services arise and become increasingly popular, networkoperators need to rapidly adapt and increase network capacity. They also need to reduce their cost of deploying,operating and scaling optical core networks in order to keep margins strong. In the past, there has been onesimple formula to rate the performance of a core network: What is the cost per GbE mile? This has changed. Withthe demand to shorten time-to-revenue and reduce operational expenses, increased network flexibility and loweroperational complexity have also become important areas of focus for service providers.Our Solution –Agile Core TransportAny wavelength, anywhere, anytime! What started cost barrier in today’s environment of constrainedas a vision is now reality. Colorless, directionless and operational budgets. 100Gbit/s is the bit rate ofcontentionless multi-degree ROADM technology in choice in tomorrow’s optical core networks. And it isour FSP 3000 has introduced unprecedented flexibility the most efficient way to interwork with the packetin the optical layer. This next-generation architecture data and storage worlds. Our efficient 100Gbit/sis fully flexible and non-blocking. It requires very technology offers you the right-sized implementationlittle technical skill from the operational staff and for both metro and long-haul core connectivity.eliminates the need for labor-intensive pre-planning.Next-generation ROADMs, enabled with multi-haul Our FSP 3000 offers a variety of traffic protectioncapability, are the foundation of a fully automated and restoration options that support today’s high-optical core network. availability requirements. This support enables the network to adapt to a range of survivability criteria.Thanks to our industry-leading multi-layer GMPLS Networks can be deployed at minimal cost whilecontrol plane, operators can run a complex meshed being flexible and future-proof against changes in thenetwork without worrying about technical parameters. service mix.With our FSP Service Manager, network operatorscan provision wavelengths, OTH connections andEthernet Virtual Circuits with the touch of a button.Our FSP 3000 can turn your optical core networkinto a service-friendly data highway and allows forintelligent interworking with the IP/MPLS technologythat rides on top.Increasing the bit rate per wavelength rather thanlighting more wavelengths removes a significant National Core Network
