New Solution Provides High-Speed Connectivity to Five Islands
Norcross, Georgia, USA. January 11, 2012. ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Wavecom Solutions, a Hawaiian-based information and communications technology provider specializing in enterprise-level managed services and cloud-based solutions has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 to provide high-speed connectivity throughout the region. This new DWDM deployment eases fiber constraints, consolidates transport and service requirements, provides 10Gbit/s network coverage and connects a geographically diverse area. Since 2004, ADVA Optical Networking and Wavecom Solutions have developed a strong partnership, enabling the delivery of reliable and consistent network services to thousands of business customers.
“Simplicity is one of the keys to our network,” commented Simon Fiddian, CTO, Wavecom Solutions. “Our customers want a solution that just works and ADVA Optical Networking has been instrumental in helping us achieve that. In fact, we were able to deploy the ADVA FSP 3000 across multiple islands and sites in just three days. Being able to rapidly deploy and expand our network capacity so quickly is incredible. But it’s also the intelligence that the ADVA FSP 3000 offers that is vital. It enables us to increase the visibility into our network, ensuring that we can drive greater operational efficiencies and ultimately further value to the customer.”
Cloud services, unified communications and carrier- and enterprise-grade voice and data solutions are just a few services boosted by the DWDM implementation. Wavecom Solutions’ presence in Hawaii is focused on a six-island sub-sea and terrestrial fiber network, enabling the company to deliver reliable services to customers spread over a wide area. Besides low- and high-speed point-to-point transport up to 10Gbit/s, the company also offers cloud computing with its WaveFlex service. This network serves customers from nearly every industry and sector including: hospitality, education, healthcare, finance, automotive, construction, engineering, as well as carriers and service providers from a wholesale perspective.
“We know how important data accessibility is, especially in a geographically isolated area like the Hawaiian Islands,” commented John Scherzinger, senior vice president of sales in North America. “For enterprises in such remote areas, reliable and high-speed network connectivity is not simply a nice thing to have, it’s a business imperative. Since its inception, Wavecom Solutions has developed an incredible understanding of its customer needs and this is reflected in its network. This latest deployment further unites enterprises across the islands and offers an out-of-the-box solution.”
