ADVA’s new FSP 150 is aimed at businesses seeking ultimate security for high-capacity Carrier Ethernet servicesADVA recently rolled out its FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH), addressing urgent enterprise demand for robust security and high-bandwidth connectivity. The new member of the ADVA FSP 150 programmable demarcation and edge compute portfolio supports 10 Gigabits per second MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet and IP services. It would offer precise synchronization capabilities, and also come with hardware-based encryption.
The ADVA FSP 150-XG118 Pro (CSH) allows business data to pass “smoothly and safely” over untrusted public networks. It would empower communication service providers (CSPs) to provide fully encrypted bandwidth services with its comprehensive MACsec security. The ADVA FSP 150-G118Pro (CSH) is ready to run post-quantum cryptographic (PCQ) algorithms.
The FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) combines 10 Gigabits per second MEF 3.0 Carrier Ethernet and IP service demarcation and aggregation with a rich set of programmability, security features, and synchronization. It allows end-useers and CSPs to deploy compact and robust data protection. ADVA’s FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) comes with precise clock technology based on Synchronous Ethernet and hardware processing of IEEE 1588 timestamps. Its completely open architecture supports ADVA’s Ensemble Connector and other virtual network function infrastructure. Based on the enhanced version of MACsec able to encrypt across multiple domains and service provider networks, it also provides end-to-end security over MED Layer 2 cloud networks.
Edge Capabilities, SDN
General Manager at Edge Cloud ADVA, James Buchanan, said that the FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) offers an affordable and simple route to high capacity Carrier Ethernet connectivity with the highest levels of data protection. He further mentioned that the compact and cost-efficient device combines demarcation, synchronization, encryption, and edge compute. No other single solution would offer all the features of our FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH), so he says. It would provide data encryption compliant with the most rigid standards in the industry, including FIPS 140-3. FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) has multilayer demarcation capabilities as well as precise synchronization delivery. He concluded his statement by saying that the edge computing capabilities and open SDN control make it a key component for industrial IoT applications.
Vice President of Product Line Management at ADVA, Eli Angel, said that FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) supports a “simple and seamless” transition from 1 Gigabit per second to 10 Gigabits per second services while meeting the highest security needs. It would provide an affordable and simple way to achieve safe and assured connectivity that businesses need for peace and compliance with stringent regulations.
The solutions also allow CSPs to roll out customized encryption-as-a-service offerings. Eli Angel ended his statement by saying that FPS 150-XG118Pro (CSH) shares a security framework similar to optical products. Its cryptographic techniques like a dynamic key exchange and hardware tamper protection would make sure that the most sensitive data is under strong protection. It is also ready to support quantum-safe key exchange via a simple software upgrade.
