ADVA Optical Networking announced today that SysEleven has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 to answer fierce bandwidth demand. One of Berlin's leading internet service providers (ISPs), SysEleven has expanded its network several times in the past twelve months to accommodate continued customer growth. The ADVA FSP 3000 connects SysEleven's data centers within the city, ensuring robust, reliable and secure optical transport for its customers’ cloud-based and virtualized applications. The network was deployed and will be maintained by ADVA Optical Networking's Elite partner Axians. Further expansion is expected in 2014.
“Berlin's digital society is one of the most vibrant in Germany, in all of Europe. It's a society that's growing at a phenomenal rate; a society that has significant expectations,” said Marc Korthaus, founder and CEO, SysEleven. “It's these growing expectations that explain why our network is expanding so rapidly. There are very few companies in Berlin prepared to invest in the city's digital infrastructure, in the city's future. We're proud to be one of them. We're building an optical infrastructure that exceeds our customers' and the city's expectations. That's why the scalability of the ADVA FSP 3000 is so key. We know that it will meet our networking ambitions, regardless of how big those ambitions become.”
The inherent scalability of the ADVA FSP 3000 played a decisive role in its selection. From 10Gbit/s to 100Gbit/s and beyond, the ADVA FSP 3000 grows at the pace of your network and your customers' needs. What's more, its plug-and-play simplicity is key, especially for smaller enterprises that wish to rapidly respond to new network opportunities. The ADVA FSP 3000 connects Berlin’s most relevant carrier neutral data centers in a redundant ring topology, providing its customers with effective high-speed access backed by robust service level agreements. SysEleven’s ability to connect customers to any combination of these five data centers independent of other network operators enables Berlin’s entire ISP scene to grow and expand rapidly.
“SysEleven is an exciting company. It's young, it's ambitious, it's dynamic. In many ways, it embodies the values of Berlin's digital society, of its digital culture,” commented Hartmut Müller-Leitloff, vice president, Sales Central Europe, ADVA Optical Networking. “Our team is intent on helping SysEleven drive its network forward. Indeed, our technology will play an intrinsic role in developing an optical infrastructure that outstrips all expectations and, more importantly, enables it to grow. What's key here is that we, along with our trusted partner Axians, continue to provide the most resilient and secure data transport possible. Ultimately, SysEleven is trusting us with its customers' data, with its business and this is something that we never take for granted.”
“SysEleven is growing at an incredible rate. Its team, its customers, its network - this is a company that's moving fast,” said Detlev Schmidt, head of business unit, Carrier & Service Providers, Axians. “Their network is 100G ready today the exception, not the rule in Berlin’s ISP community. Our role is to help it achieve its ambitions, help its customers succeed. That's why being an Elite Partner with ADVA Optical Networking (advaoptical.com) is so important. Being a part of its Partner Ecosphere Program enables us to deliver the best services possible. Our team has an in-depth understanding of the ADVA FSP 3000. We understand its design, its technology, its capabilities. As such, we can provide SysEleven with the most advanced support of this product available.”
