Viva’s Qualitynet chooses ADVA for 400Gbps ‘flexible’ data transport

20 Sep 2019

German-based optical networking company ADVA has been selected by broadband operator Qualitynet – owned by Viva Kuwait – to deploy its FSP 3000 platform for nationwide data transport at speeds up to 400Gbps both domestically and internationally. A press release says that the solution enables the Kuwaiti ISP to offer flexible ultra-high capacity connectivity to its residential, business and government customers, with new fully redundant infrastructure leveraging ADVA’s QuadFlex line card and OpenFabric OTN cross-connect allowing Qualitynet to turn up new services remotely. Other features of the solution include ‘agile ROADM layer and automated network management from Ensemble Controller ensuring optimised performance’.

Qualitynet CEO Mohammed Nizar Al-Nusif said: ‘Now we can offer a new generation of data-intensive services that can be turned up instantly with no need for truck rolls. Thanks to the ADVA FSP 3000 OpenFabric aggregating lower-speed services onto high-speed wavelengths, we can efficiently provide the data rates Kuwait’s businesses require. Our new network also provides unprecedented protection. In the event of any fibre issues, the FSP 3000 OpenFabric automatically discovers new paths, enhancing availability and quality of service.’
