FSP 3000 Agile Connect

Scalable optical transport for profitable growth

Today’s optical transport demands are constantly changing. High-bandwidth services and cloudbased applications are booming and software-defined networking is evolving to the domain of transport networks. Network operators and enterprises need a flexible and scalable solution fit for this challenging environment while keeping costs at a minimum.

OThe increasing need for bandwidth delivered to any location in the shortest possible time, together with the need for low latency and robust security, is transforming optical networks and how they are managed. Our FSP 3000 has been designed to efficiently deal with this new environment, lowering its complexity and minimizing cost-per-bit and operational efforts. Thanks to its modular design and latest technology, our FSP 3000 supports a wide range of services and applications. With our ConnectGuardTM encryption technology and other security features such as intrusion detection, the FSP 3000 AgileConnectTM enable secure and robust optical network solutions that can scale, providing a solid foundation to accommodate tomorrow’s needs. What’s more our FSP Network Hypervisor in conjuction with our FSP 3000 MicroConnect™ and OpenFabric™ technology is the most cost-effective foundation for software-defined metro network evolution.
