ADVA Optical Rolls-out Modular ESS to Simplify Network Operations
ADVA Optical Networking (News - Alert) announced the commercial availability of a modular Ethernet Services Suite (ESS) covering the entire lifecycle of an Ethernet solution to simplify the deployment, operation and maintenance of Ethernet networks. The service will be delivered by a global team of subject matter experts in Ethernet service delivery. ESS will include design, deployment, project management, training and periodic maintenance of the Ethernet service, thus offloading the entire burden of Ethernet deployment from the customer’s team.
In a release, Phillip Needel, manager for Service Business Development at ADVA Optical, said “Every aspect of ESS has been developed to simplify operations, to strip away complexities, to help service providers focus on their core business. ESS is essentially an a la carte menu that covers the full gamut of Ethernet services. It provides every service that a customer could need to plan, support, deploy and maintain their networks.”
ADVA Optical has launched the ESS on a global scale in a move to support the business requirements of big players in the networking services sector. The ESS allows service providers to launch new services rapidly and generate new business opportunities. The service suite is customized as per the requirements of the customer and is highly scalable depending upon the business needs. ESS will be delivered with stricter service level agreements and is expected to emerge as a commercially viable solution in terms of logistics and operational costs for service providers looking to simplify and streamline the existing processes.
Speaking of the service delivery aspect, Needel continued, “What's more, with our ESS team spread across the globe, we’re able to meet even the most demanding service requirements. Products and spares can be delivered the next day. Our ESS engineers can be onsite within four hours. No one else in the industry offers the same level of service, the same comprehensive approach.”
