The unceasing explosion in bandwidth consumption is forcing network operators to make continuous changes to their access infrastructure to increase network capacity. ADVA's G.metro self-tuning enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) devices boost the capacity of fiber-based access networks without significant changes to existing hardware equipment. What’s more, with automated tuning capabilities it also reduces inventory and provisioning efforts to a minimum.
ADVA's G.metro is the first turnkey offering of its kind to cost-effectively help mobile and enterprise networks boost access capacity while at the same time saving vital fiber resources. The new technology, which features enhanced small form-factor pluggable (SFP+) DWDM transceivers, a complete suite of compact filters, and in-service fiber and wavelength monitoring, offers an easy way to increase bandwidth without replacing equipment. The solution seamlessly integrates with ADVA and third-party infrastructure, making it simple and highly cost-efficient to scale mobile, fixed broadband access and enterprise networks. With automatic wavelength tuning, ADVA’s G.metro solution also supports zero-touch provisioning, reducing set-up time and eliminating human error.
