Serverius deploys ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex for 1200G transport

April 10, 2020
Low-power, ultra-compact 1RU terminal unlocks new value in Dutch connectivity service provider’s existing network.

ADVA on Apr. 9 announced that Serverius, one of the Netherlands’ largest data center service suppliers, is leveraging the ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex terminal to massively increase the capacity of its deployed infrastructure. Per a press statement, "By utilizing the industry’s most comprehensive and scalable solution, Serverius is answering fierce growth in demand for its connectivity, colocation and data security services. With its ultra-flexible bandwidth modulation, TeraFlex enables Serverius to harness previously unused spectrum, unlocking new value in its existing fiber network."

The highly compact FSP 3000 TeraFlex 1RU platform optimizes all optical paths and ensures the lowest cost per bit for all fiber links, contends ADVA. By enabling super-channels of up to 1200 Gbit/s and a total capacity of 7.2 Tbit/s, TeraFlex empowers Serverius to provide Dutch and international enterprises with a new level of capacity and throughput.

“By harnessing the very latest innovation, we’re bringing a new level of bandwidth capacity and service quality to businesses throughout the Netherlands and beyond. The ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex is key to our mission of providing world-class data center connectivity. And with its space- and power-efficiency, it also ensures that our services remain highly affordable today and sustainable for the future,” commented Sergey Petukhin, head of connectivity infrastructure, Serverius.

He added, “This deployment unlocks the full potential of our network. Now we can meet rapidly rising data demand and be sure that our infrastructure is ready to scale when our clients need even more capacity. What’s more, the openness and programmability of TeraFlex mean that we’re free to harness the benefits of tomorrow’s innovation without being tied to any one vendor.”

Serverius says its new infrastructure capability is built on the ADVA FSP 3000 TeraFlex, which uses software-defined fractional QAM modulation and adaptive baud rate capabilities to support 1200 Gbit/s streams. By retrieving optical channel conditions via network telemetry, the platform determines the best possible capacity and spectral efficiency for each light path. This enables Serverius to exploit untapped capacity in its existing infrastructure without the cost of a complete system upgrade.

Each 1RU TeraFlex terminal can also support up to three cards, providing easy access to capacity up to 7.2 Tbit/s. What’s more, Serverius is also harnessing ADVA’s MicroMux QSFP28 plug, which converts 100GbE client ports into ten 10GbE ports, further reducing cost, rack space and operational complexity. Cloud solution specialists Exclusive Networks also played a key role in deploying the technology.

Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, SVP, sales, EMEA, ADVA, commented, “Serverius has a clear vision of what businesses need and a bold strategy for delivering it. By leveraging our most advanced technologies to massively increase the capacity of its fiber plant, the Netherlands’ fastest-growing cloud connectivity provider is offering its customers a vital competitive edge. With our TeraFlex, Serverius has the power to flexibly respond to soaring data requirements and help businesses achieve their full potential. The strong and long-lasting relationship we have with the Serverius team was also crucial to the success of this project. By working closely with their people, we’ve been able to ensure that the new solution meets all of their particular needs while maximizing the value of their deployed infrastructure.”
