Telecom Italia Uses ADVA FSP 3000 in Major Metro Deployments

 100Gbit/s Solution With Multi-Degree ROADM Technology
           Delivers Fast, Flexible Service Provisioning

ROME, March 15, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- ADVA Optical Networking
announced today that Telecom Italia has deployed the ADVA FSP 3000 with
multi-degree ROADM technology throughout its large-scale metropolitan
networks. Italy's leading telecommunication and ICT service provider is
using the scalable WDM transport solution to address the enormous
bandwidth demand of its residential and business customers. The
solution delivers capacity of up to 100Gbit/s to every major Italian
city and the ADVA FSP 3000's modular design ensures that the
infrastructure is ready for further growth. ADVA Optical Networking's
technology is integral to the new dynamic architecture and flexible
service routing, which reduces Telecom Italia's planning time and
operational costs. By simplifying and accelerating the process of
rolling out new services, Telecom Italia is opening up new revenue
streams for its many enterprise clients.

"Our business clients expect service agility and our residential
customers want to be able to stream video whenever they choose," said
Andrea Calvi, head of transport and data networks, Telecom Italia. "Now
with the ADVA FSP 3000 our network is bringing ultra-high capacity
connectivity to the home and the enterprise. We're also pleased with
how easy and smooth the process has been. From testing to
implementation, our relationship with ADVA Optical Networking's team
has proved to be as vital as the technology. We've worked closely with
their engineers at every stage, from laboratory trials in Germany and
Italy to collaborating on the fast deployment. That's helped to ensure
that any issues are quickly dealt with and high quality is maintained

The deployment of the ADVA FSP 3000's multi-degree ROADM technology
creates a next-generation architecture, enabling Telecom Italia to
offer fully flexible networking. The process of rolling out new
services is radically simplified so that new applications can be
implemented whenever customers demand. It enables Telecom Italia to
optimize their network operations and boost efficiency and, with the
dynamic flexibility of ROADMs, traffic demands are met by boosting the
busiest network areas automatically. It's also a future-proof solution
as the ADVA FSP 3000 easily scales to accommodate demand for even
higher bandwidth. What's more, the new network has the capacity to
deliver encrypted services. As more businesses require total security,
Telecom Italia will be able to leverage the ADVA FSP 3000 to encrypt
information on the physical layer for complete protection of
mission-critical data.

"This has been an exciting project right from the start. Telecom Italia
has a passion for delivering more to its customers. It believes deeply
in harnessing the most advanced technology available and we're proud to
be the first vendor to enable them to transmit 100Gbit/s in their
metropolitan networks," commented Marcello Forti, VP, sales Italy, ADVA
Optical Networking. "We're also delighted that Telecom Italia was so
impressed with our efficiency. Our advanced logistics model ensured
equipment was available precisely when and where it was required,
helping us to dramatically reduce the time needed for deployment. The
other key component was the excellent relationships we've built with
Telecom Italia's team. Working closely together we've been able to iron
out issues and ensure the highest quality at every stage. Our teamwork
with Telecom Italia has empowered us to create metro networks that will
meet the needs of Italian businesses today and in years to come."
