ADVA announced that Telehouse America/NYIIX has deployed its FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) to tackle soaring data demand in its metro network. Telehouse America is utilizing ADVA’s data center interconnect (DCI) platform to boost capacity among its NYIIX service locations and New York colocation facilities. Built on the high-density ADVA FSP 3000 CloudConnect(TM) with its compact form factor and award-winning energy efficiency, the new infrastructure transports data at 200Gbit/s and offers easy scalability to 400Gbit/s and beyond. The solution was turned on in January and ADVA’s open and programmable DCI technology now enables Telehouse America to meet the growing expectations of its peering customers and deliver ultra-high-speed connectivity in its NYIIX internet exchange point.
"With ADVA’s unrivalled DCI technology and the drive and expertise of its team, we’re addressing soaring bandwidth demand for our NYIIX Internet exchange points.

Telehouse America’s upgraded NYIIX infrastructure features ADVA’s open optical layer enhanced with FSP 3000 QuadFlex(TM) capabilities.

What’s more, the technology features a modular design, ensuring that the new metro network is ready to scale to 400Gbit/s and beyond whenever Telehouse America’s customers demand.
