ADVA expands industry’s smallest aggregation solution for the edge and the core

Share

ADVA (FSE: ADV) today expanded its MicroMux™ series of pluggable devices with two new models. The MicroMux™ Nano and the MicroMux™ Quattro now enable network operators to maximize the value of their existing aggregation devices both at the edge and in the core. The two new high-density multiplexers focus on helping customers reduce operational complexity, lower capital expenditures and fully exploit the potential of their existing hardware. The ADVA MicroMux™ Nano fits into 10GbE sockets and fans out ten 1GbE interfaces, bringing new levels of flexibility and efficiency to the network edge. At the other end of the scale, the MicroMux™ Quattro converts 400GbE client ports into four 100GbE ports, reducing cost and complexity at the core. The unique portfolio of standards-compliant multiplexers provides a way to affordably scale data center access and transport networks while meeting legacy needs.

“Our comprehensive portfolio of multiplexers in a plug enables a fresh approach to expanding infrastructure. It empowers operators to balance current requirements with tomorrow’s demands, protecting previous investments while ensuring future-proof growth. With our MicroMux™ series, there’s no need to replace entire systems or add expensive and bulky equipment. Operators are free to easily convert 10Gbit/s, 100Gbit/s or 400Gbit/s interfaces into multiple lower-speed interfaces with zero footprint increase,” said Stephan Rettenberger, SVP, marketing and investor relations, ADVA. “Today’s launch highlights the importance of our open optical technology for an industry juggling soaring data demand with challenging performance, simplicity and cost objectives. Now there’s a plug-and-play solution for all aggregation needs that smoothly upgrades legacy infrastructure without compromising space, power or spectral efficiency. With our new MicroMux™ family, operators can harness a seamless mix of speeds for ultimate efficiency and value.”

The ADVA MicroMux™ Nano is the first device of its kind specifically engineered for the network edge. Requiring no additional equipment, the Layer 2 Ethernet multiplexer easily slots into existing SFP+ client ports, turning 10GbE into ten 1GbE interfaces without inflating cost. Next in size is the original MicroMux™. With over 10,000 deployed in commercial networks, this QSFP28 module is already delivering true scale and flexibility to global cloud and internet service providers by converting 100GbE to ten 10GbE channels. At the core of the network where much higher data rates are required, the ADVA MicroMux™ Quattro aggregates four 100GbE streams into a 400GbE QSFP-DD plug with no increase in footprint. Extremely simple to deploy, all three MicroMux™ plugs provide a major boost to client port density without waste, ensuring no stranded bandwidth and no loss of total system capacity.

“Our MicroMux™ range is the result of close collaboration with leading transport network and DCI operator customers looking to meet both legacy needs and future demands. With more than 10,000 of our original MicroMux™ modules already deployed, our pluggable muxponders are right now helping operators across the globe to tackle the most urgent challenges around cost and scale while supporting a true pay-as-you-grow model of network expansion,” commented Ross Saunders, GM, Optical Engines, ADVA. “Our MicroMux™ technology makes it easy to upgrade a link without having to replace the whole system. They also deliver superb energy efficiency. What’s more, the whole family comes in several variants to accommodate all distances and fiber types. So, whether it’s single or multimode fiber over short, intermediate or long-reach links, network operators have the tools available to optimize space, power and operating costs.”

International Zinc Association Launches Zinc Battery Initiative25.2.2021 21:48:00 EETPress release

The International Zinc Association (IZA) is excited to announce the launch of its newest program, the Zinc Battery Initiative. Recent extreme weather events, amplified by climate change, have once again focused attention on the future role of fossil fuels and the capacity and resilience of energy grids worldwide. One of the most impactful ways of addressing this is through cost-effective energy storage. As renewables become an ever-greater part of the electrical grid, energy storage can help address solar and wind power's intermittency. It can also help respond to large fluctuations in demand by capturing and storing excess energy during low demand and bringing it online during peak times. Energy storage also helps provide resilience by serving as a backup energy supply when generation is interrupted. It will also play a pivotal role in electrifying transport, and other applications where power is needed, but tethered connections to the grid are not practical. Addressing climate change
