Over 100,000 ADVA FSP 150 Circuits Deployed By Openreach For Ethernet Access Direct Services

LONDON, Sept. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

          ADVA FSP Management Suite Plays Key Role in Major Milestone

ADVA Optical  Networking announced  today that
Openreach,  the infrastructure division of BT  Group, has deployed over 100,000
FSP  150 circuits into  its Ethernet  Access Direct  (EAD) services. This figure
marks  a major milestone  and represents one  of the largest  installed bases of
Ethernet  connectivity in the world. One of  the key reasons for this success is
the ADVA FSP Management Suite that enables Openreach to drastically simplify the
provisioning of new services and rapidly respond to customer requests.

"This  milestone represents a significant achievement  and is the culmination of
many  years  of  determination  and  effort,"  said  Mark  Logan, director Fibre
Products,  Openreach.  "Our teams have worked  closely to ensure we identify and
meet  the needs  of our  customers. The  ADVA FSP Management Suite interoperates
with  our Operations Support System (OSS), to  ensure we can offer our customers
simplicity and zero-touch provisioning."

Since  its  public  launch  in  2009, EAD  services  have been widely adopted by
enterprises  throughout the U.K. It's this success that demands a robust network
management  tool  that  is  capable  of  removing  complexity  from  operations,
administration  and maintenance tasks. This is one  of the strengths of the ADVA
FSP  Management Suite. Over a decade of  development means that it can meet even
the  most exacting networking demands. During  the course of 2013/14, there will
be further development of the management suite to include additional support for
Synchronous Ethernet and virtual services.

"Openreach  is a company that's  working hard to meet  and exceed its customers'
expectations"   commented   Sarah   Mendham,   account  director,  ADVA  Optical
Networking.  "Together we've  helped to  drive Ethernet  connectivity across the
U.K.,  and  we  believe  a  major  cornerstone  for  this achievement is our FSP
Management  Suite. This secret  ingredient ensures Openreach  can respond to its
customers'  requests in good time and  take a collaborative approach to changing
demands.  We've worked side-by-side to  develop network management software that
meets every aspect of Openreach's specific requests."
