Open optical networking

Opening the door to tomorrow’s networks

Communication service providers (CSPs) and enterprises are facing unprecedented challenges. The continued surge in bandwidth demand combined with growing expectations to access data-intensive applications anywhere and with the lowest latency possible demands a new approach to building networks. Embracing openness and disaggregation is now essential to avoid the constraints of vendor lock-in and seize the freedom to harness the latest innovation. Our open optical technology is designed for easy interoperability and integration, providing an agile, scalable foundation ready to expand and evolve.

Total flexibility, complete choice

From metro to long-haul, networks are being transformed by the power of open innovation. Solutions like the Adtran FSP 3000 are freeing CSPs and businesses from the shackles of today’s closed systems. With its modular design, our FSP 3000 OLS delivers more flexibility than ever before with customers able to select the chassis, amplifiers and filters they need. And, whether coherent or direct detect technology is preferred, our unified OLS meets all needs with new levels of automation for easy setup and operation. What’s more, FSP 3000 terminals with advanced coherent technology are now taking capacity and flexibility to unprecedented levels. Our TeraFlex™ is a 1RU platform that enables channels of up to 1.2Tbit/s and a total capacity of 7.2Tbit/s.

Best of both worlds

Our comprehensive range of open optical transport solutions includes the FSP 3000 OpenFabric™, an entirely new and open OTN switch specifically engineered to enable CSPs to leverage more value from their deployed infrastructure. Another key technology is the MicroMux™, a highly innovative pluggable module which provides ultimate client port flexibility for data center interconnect applications with zero compromise on power, space or spectral efficiency. Our portfolio is the ideal route to the benefits of openness. Now customers can deploy a turnkey integrated solution from one trusted and highly experienced vendor which is also fully disaggregated and primed to work with third-party technologies.
