ADVA Optical Networking Scores #1 Position in Ovum’s DCI Global Market Share Report
September 2016 by Marc Jacob
ADVA Optical Networking announced that it has been ranked number one in Ovum’s latest data center interconnect (DCI) global market share report. The company topped the tables in both the metro ICP/CNP and enterprise categories. During the first half of 2016, ADVA Optical Networking achieved enormous success in the DCI space and Ovum’s report clearly underscores this. Figures included in the report show that the company has more than doubled its market share. In addition to ADVA Optical Networking’s success, Ovum’s latest DCI report highlights how fast the DCI market is growing - a trend that shows no signs of slowing down.
"The DCI market is one of the most fiercely competitive in the networking space. The level of innovation and commitment required to succeed here is phenomenal," said Brian Protiva, CEO, ADVA Optical Networking. "Over the past few months, our team has achieved some incredible results and Ovum’s report clearly captures our success. Doubling our market share in only six months is an enormous feat and one that our team is enormously proud of. But these figures highlight something much more important than market share and that’s customer confidence in us and our technology. This cannot be overstated. Meeting our customers’ expectations is the ultimate measure of our success."
ADVA Optical Networking’s DCI technology has been the focal point of the industry for many years. The recently introduced FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) is widely recognized as the most scalable, open and energy efficient DCI solution on the market. It’s one of the few DCI technologies to feature a 400Gbit/s single line card and deliver 51.2Tbit/s of total throughput at 1.4Tbit/s per rack unit. The FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) is also the market’s only true open line system. What’s more, it transports 2Tbit/s of duplex traffic at less than 1 kilowatt. That’s less than half a watt per Gbit/s. The recent expansion of the FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) with the ADVA MicroMux(TM), which supports legacy 10 and 40Gbit/s clients with no loss in density or throughput, is a further example of the company’s continued DCI innovation.
"ADVA Optical Networking has built an enviable position in the DCI market. Their team and their technology have continually outperformed expectations to deliver impressive results," commented Ian Redpath, principal analyst, Ovum. "The company’s sales in 2016 are a clear indication of this success, especially its record second quarter. Its global market share in the metro ICP/CNP DCI space has more than doubled and its number one position here reflects how strongly its technology and its value proposition resonates with customers and the industry. This is no small achievement when you consider how hotly contested the DCI marketplace is and will continue to be for some time to come."
