ADVA announced that it has won the MEF 2017 Carrier Ethernet 2.0 (CE 2.0) award in the Third Network Technology Solutions Award category. The accolade honors the ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4), a solution for multi-layer business service demarcation and virtual network functions (VNF) hosting with a hot-swappable, pluggable server.
Judges recognized the value of the ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4), which removes the risk of introducing virtualization by enabling communication service providers (CSPs) to easily and cost-effectively roll out network functions virtualization (NFV). The unique device also helps with server lifecycle management by making the process of upgrading simple and efficient.
The ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4), which hit the market in Q3 2017, combines proven CE 2.0 demarcation technology with a hot-swappable server for straightforward migration from legacy technology to high-value, NFV-based managed IT services. It empowers CSPs to grow their business without the need for significant upfront investment in management systems and cloud data centers. When combined with Ensemble Connector software, the ADVA FSP 150 ProVMe (P2.4) enables NFV infrastructure resources to be configured and activated by zero touch automation, minimizing the need for manual intervention. The solution also protects connections with encryption through hardware-based security features, as well as securing system integrity with access control and providing in-service monitoring of servers and software appliances with a fully integrated, patent-pending test solution.
