The Fiber Service Platforms (FSP3000) are for enterprises and carriers that need to extend storage and server channels over optical fiber using secure high speed WDM technology for Business Recovery  and high end cloud applications..

Since FSP is protocol transparent, all signals can be transported without modifying the protocol or impacting "local" performance. FSP's transparent fiber-in fiber-out interfaces support all protocols between the range of 8 Mbit/s and 40Gbit/s,100Gbit/sec including OC-3/12/48/192, STM-1/4/16/64, Gigabit Ethernet, 10 Gigabit Ethernet, 1, 2, 4, 8, 10 Gigabit Fibre Channel, Fast Ethernet, FDDI, ATM, ESCON, 1,2,4,8 Gigabit FICON, GDPS STP, GDPS PSIFB Infiniband or any proprietary protocol operating within the specified data range.

The extension features of the ADVA FSP3000 solutions have enabled IBM® customers to run Metro and Global Mirrors at extended distances. This solution enable storage devices to be extended over optical fiber up to 600km. IBM customers running Fibre Channel Metro and Global Mirror sync and async solutions benefit from a more robust Recovery Solution over extended distances with a perfect migration path to IBM Cloud.

Through CWDM, DWDM and Time Division Multiplexing (TDM), the aggregation feature provides several options for service density. The lowest cost options of 8 channel aggregation can be scaled to provide hundreds of FICON, Fiber Channel or GbE interfaces per fiber pair.

  • + Functional details

    Using the ESS's new Metro and Global mirror capability effectively extends the distance by which customers can do a synchronous or asynchronous mirror. Previously, users were limited to 40 km. By utilizing Fibre Channel Metro Mirror IBM has demonstrated an end-to-end, multi-site disaster recovery solution with zero data loss to 200 kms for synchronous recovery and 600 kms for asynchronous Global Mirror recovery. This was accomplished using IBM Enterprise Server Storage (ESS) and ADVA FSP3000  (Fiber Service Platforms) CWDM/DWDM systems. This FC Metro Mirror and Global Mirror configurations were also tested in conjunction with GDPS® PSIFB (Infiniband) for a fault tolerant clustered environment.

  • + Business problem

    Customer wants to extend 25 Fibre Channels for Mainframe and Open Systems Metro Mirror and 10 5 Gbit GDPS Infiniband channels for clustering plus links between locations for Voice and Video traffic. Customer wants his locations to be 100 kms away and get local performance on all channels. Customer also wants to double his environment every 18 months without a network upgrade. The only cost effective solution is FSP3000 WDMs.

  • + Business opportunity

    The ADVA FSP3000 business case is based on providing:

    • A secure high performance disaster recovery solution that provides justification for private optical backbones and cloud computing.
    • A Virtualized  Server and Storage Strategy where bandwidth is secure and plentiful.
    • A migration path to 100G  Ethernet and 16G FC

     

    ADVA FSP3000 DWDM systems provide large storage users with the bandwidth necessary for private high speed LANs and SANs extension in the metro. By eliminating the Wide Area Network (WAN), shared storage pools can be located and VMs (virtual machines) accessed and moved securely anywhere in the company's private or shared metro optical network (up to 600 km).

    Private or shared metro optical networks allow very efficient contingency plans using Synchronous IBM Metro and Global replication of critical data. This helps improve and lower the cost of a company's disaster recovery plans for both Mainframe and Open Systems users.

    The savings optical networking offers over traditional phone company circuits justifies the investment for large storage users in metro areas. In most cases the Return On Investment (ROI) is less than 12 months. In addition, increased bandwidth can be made available between facilities at a fraction of the cost.

  • + Return on investment

    The following case study shows how replacing 40 2Gbit/s Inter Switch Links (ISLs) with six 10Gbit/s ISLs delivers better service at lower cost. The cost savings in this comparison are dramatic, $1 million in combined savings for up-front capital expenditures and five-year maintenance costs. Reduced complexity, footprint and power-consumption also deliver savings.

  • + Competitive advantage

    Enterprise design, LOWEST LATENCY, physical layer encryption, ease of use,  low cost and the latest technology have been FSP3000s strongest advantages. A good example is FSP's support of GDPS Infiniband and 4, 8 & 10 and now 16Gbit/s FC ISLs (Interswitch Links) a industry first!  ADVA Optical Networking is also the only DWDM vender with 100G Metro technology ideal for Data center applications.
